The Lover No one younger than 18 may see an 18 film in a cinema.

Adults should be free to choose their own entertainment. Exceptions are most likely in the following areas:

  • where the material is in breach of the criminal law, or has been created through the commission of a criminal offence
  • where material or treatment appears to us to risk harm to individuals or, through their behaviour, to society. For example, the detailed portrayal of violent or dangerous acts, or of illegal drug use, which may cause harm to public health or morals. This may include portrayals of sadistic violence, rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour
  • which make this violence look appealing; reinforce the suggestion that victims enjoy rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour; or which invite viewer complicity in rape, other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour or other harmful violent activities
  • where there are more explicit images of sexual activity in the context of a sex work (see right) In the case of video works, which may be more accessible to younger viewers, intervention may be more frequent than for cinema films.

News from around the web

With the release of the fifth in the now long running Transformers series we were bound to get a new film at the top of the UK box office.

Transformers The Last Knight makes its way to the top of the Uk box office on its debut weekend of release with a gross of £4.6 million, a low for the series.

In fact the other 4 films have made between £8 and £11 million on their opening, it could not surprise me if this one struggles to make that during its entire run.

Wonder Woman spent three weeks at the top of the box office before this week falling to number 2, still a &poound;1.5 million weekend is not too bad.

The films total gross has not crossed the &poound;18 million mark and it should go past the £20 million before the end of its run.

Also new this week is Hampsted at number 6 and Tubelight at number 7 with half a million and £300,000+ respectively.

Longest running film this week is The Boss Baby with 12 weeks on the charts and highest total grossing is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now takes £40.7 million.
