OK Twihards, do you know what the most jaw-dropping scene in the entire Twilight book series is? [Spolier alert] We’re not talking about Bella and Edward finally getting it on, we’re referring to the birth of their daughter. The gross, hardcore delivery is one of the most criticized and talked about portions of Breaking Dawn and according to screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg you’re not going to see all of it in the film. How do you feel about that?!
From the very beginning Bella’s baby is feared as a monster-to-be. While in the womb, it breaks her ribs and forces her to lose a massive amount of blood, something that eventually leads to Edward making a life-saving and life changing decision. If you were looking forward to seeing all the craziness that ensues once Bella’s labor begins its not happening. They’ve found a PG-13 way to get around it.
When speaking to the LA Times, Rosenberg claimed that the graphic way the birth is described in the book won’t be literally transferred to the film.
“On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are ‘It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!’ For me it’s actually more interesting to not see it. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth … it doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.”
Do you agree with that? Is this a ridiculous or logical move on Rosenberg’s part?
How much do you want to see of Renesmee’s birth?
