The second Twilight movie New Moon made a bajillion dollars this weekend, and it didn’t make that money by rocking the boat. By all accounts it’s a fairly generic retelling of the Twilight story, continuing the same generic (possibly anti-feminist) bullshit set forth in the first one. And since Summit Entertainment would probably like to make another bajillion dollars, the chances that they’ll change it up and get all edgy for the third one seem to me to be, well, pretty minimal.

Still, star Robert Pattinson is out there claiming that the third movie Eclipse is “…a massively different movie to New Moon. According to Pop Crunch he told SiTV “There’s so many more main parts, and having these huge battle sequences, I’ve never done anything like it in any of the other movies.” What’s more he thinks Eclipse really pushes the limit of the PG-13 rating and that “it would be so funny if it was R-rated.”

We’re reporting it because he said it, but really there’s no chance the next Twilight will be an R-rated movie, huge battle sequences or not. Maybe Pattinson missed the very PG-13 Lord of the Rings movies which, I’m pretty sure, contain large-scale, horrifying battle sequences his lovey dovey vampire movie will not top. This mess was, after all, written by a Mormon. They can’t handle caffeine and barely tolerate women in pants. An MPAA certified R-rating seems out of the question.
