Robert Pattinson spills hush-hush details from the filming of Breaking Dawn. The vamp caesarian birth of Edward and BellaÂ’s baby is a harrowing, bloody and altogether unique experience. Â“Yeah, IÂ’ve done it,Â” Pattinson told Total Film. Â“IÂ’ve chewed it, spat it out!Â” Probably not quite, but close. Disturbingly close.
Readers of the book, Breaking Dawn, by Stephanie Meyers, already know the birth of the half-human, half vampire child does not go smoothly. Naturally, there is no comforting hospital background. Carlisle Cullen, the vampire doctor, is not even there. Edward and Jacob deliver the child, with the tools available, while Renesmee is already, shall we say, taking matters into her own hands. Think about how birds get out of eggs. Think about being the egg, while the bird breaks free. Yuck! So essentially Bella is chewed open from the outside while being clawed open from within. Not a pretty picture.
But readers can never be sure how closely the movie will follow the book. HereÂ’s a hint. Movies go for minimum explanatory detail, maximum gore. Count on that. And since some adult readers have already removed the book from the hands of their daughters, believe the movie might be worse. According to Robert Pattinson, the movie will be, Â“very different to the other filmsÂ—more like a horror movie.Â”
The actor, whom Twilight has made a super-celeb, is not allowed to tell much, but clandestine details have a way of slipping out. Â“Just some of the source material makes it inevitably more different. ItÂ’s completely nuts, the book.Â” There you have R-PatzÂ’s take.
If these details are spoilers, itÂ’s a safe bet no one will be put off seeing the movie when it finally opens. Except perhaps some tween girls, whose mothers already wonÂ’t let them read Breaking Dawn. And maybe thatÂ’s a good idea. Meanwhile, watch a fully-human Robert Pattinson in Water for Elephants.
