Sweden rethinks ‘New Moon’ rating

'Twilight' sequel gets lower age bar

STOCKHOLM — The fans of “New Moon” have won over the Swedish film censors.

On Friday, the same day as the highly anticipated “Twilight” sequel was to open, the Chamber Court in Stockholm, after an appeal by distrib Nordisk Film, overruled the censor´s decision to ban everyone under 15 from seeing the vampire film.

The court decided that the rating was to be lowered to 11, which also means that anyone between the ages of 7 and 11 can see the film if accompanied by an adult.

The previous decision to rate the film 15 caused an uproar among the many “Twilight” fans, many of whom are under that age.

The previous film in the saga was also rated 15. Distrib appealed that decision as well, but the Chamber Court decided to uphold the rating.
