"Eclipse" Has Been Given A PG-13 Rating
Well there's a surprise, not!
The Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Ratings Administration released their weekly ratings bulletin this morning, which included a rating for the highly anticipated third part of The Twilight Saga.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse received a PG-13 rating for "intense sequences of action and violence, and some sensuality." (Kate: Could you not change that around a bit and have intense sequences of sensuality and some action and violence. Go on please, just for me)
Both Twilight and New Moon were PG-13 as well, but for slightly different, and somewhat telling, reasons: Twilight garnered its rating due to "some violence and a scene of sensuality," (Kate: Yes A scene. ONE scene.) while New Moon earned it for "some violence and action." (Kate: Only it was the wrong kind of action :-P Aah no I did like the action in New Moon, I'm an action kinda girl!)
Confirming what the most recent trailer suggested, Eclipse's rating indicates that the action quotient has been ramped up compared to the first two movies. (Kate: Yes now we just need everything else ramped up for BD! ;-) Hint, Hint) It appears that Eclipse's marketing will try to build on this in order to attract action-seeking males who have been unmoved by Edward and Bella's love story up to this point. (Kate: NO really, they've been unmoved! I'm shocked LOL) At the very least, more action may serve to make the movie more tolerable for the males that are dragged to see Eclipse.
