"Twilight" director BILL CONDON says the new movie almost got an R-rating because of all the beheadings . . . which is how you kill a vampire in the "Twilight" universe. They made some cuts, and the film that hits theaters on Friday is rated PG-13.
MILLIONS of young people are getting STOKED for Friday's release of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2". But some of them almost didn't get a chance to see it.
--The first time the Motion Picture Association of America took a look at it, they slapped it with an R-rating because of the BEHEADINGS . . . which is how you kill a vampire in the "Twilight" movies.
--Director BILL CONDON says, quote, "Certainly, with any other movie, there are a thousand ways to kill people. With this one, it's a variation on the same theme. If they were going to be offended by the idea of beheadings, we would have had no movie."
--Ultimately, some cuts were made, and the movie hits theaters Friday with a PG-13 rating.
