The British Board Of Film Certification has released its 2019 annual report which among other many other things talks about the movies which has the most complaints about their certificates.

Here is the top 5 films which got the most complains, its interesting to see that in the UK most complaints are based around violence in movies.

Joker~2019

The Todd Phillips directed critically praised movie starring Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role which also won him the best actor Oscar got 20 complaints.

The movie was given a 15 certificate and according to the BBFC most of the commnets were for the violence and tone, with a small number of people asking for the movie to be banned outright.

The Favourite

<span class='red'><u><i><b>The Favourite</b></i></u></span>

Another critical darling and Oscar winning movie most notably for Olivia Colman in the lead role and was given a 15 age rating.

The movie got 12 complaints mainly for the strong language and sex references and acts, although as the BBFC notes most of this is done in a comic association.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Given a 15 certificate the Keanu Reeves movie is a full on tour de force and the 9 complains were about the level of the blood violence.

Interesting the BBFC notes 'Our research shows that violence that is perceived to be 'real' registers more strongly with viewers than violence that is clearly stylised or fantastical.'

Alita: Battle Angel

Robert Rodriguez directed this critically acclaimed comic book adaptation which was given a 12A age rating on release, the movie got 5 complaints for its strong language and violence.

Fighting with My Family

The British made movie which starred Dwayne Johnsson and was directed by Stephen Merchant for 5 complaints about the movies language and sex references.

Interesting notes

Of interest is the Transformers spin off movie Bumblebee which was submitted to the BBFC in 2 different edits, one was passed 12A and the other PG, only the PG version was shown in cinemas and the film still got 4 complaints about the violence although its purely fantastical robots that are creating the violence and no humans are ever involved.

The report is a fascinating read and can be downloaded here.

Making his solo directorial debut Stephen Merchant takes his Fighting With My Family to the top of the UK box office on its debut weekend with The Aftermath also new at 6.

The Aftermath

Fighting With My Family

Based on a true story the film was produced by Dwayne Johnson who also appears in the film and makes its debut at the top with a weekend gross of just over £2 million.

This is a typical British feel good movie similar to The Full Monty or Four Wedding And A Funeral and should hang around for quite a while on the UK box office.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The brick movie falls from the top after 3 weeks with a gross of £1.4 million on its fourth weekend of release.

This brings the films total UK gross to £15.8 million which is about £11 million below that of the first movie at this stage of release.

Instant Family

Falling to 3 this week but still doing well is the Mark Wahlberg starring film which takes £1.1 million on its 3rd weekend, this pushes its total gross to a respectable £8 million.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

This third Dragon movie falls to 4 with a gross of £1.04 million pushing its total to £17.2 million, its still the highest grossing movie released in 2019.

Green Book

Winning the Best Film Oscar and Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Mahershala Ali has pushed this film back to number 5 with a weekend take of £737,659 taking its total gross to £7.4 million.

The Aftermath

Keira Knightley's new film makes its debut at 6 this week with an opening gross of £589,965.

The Favourite

An Oscar win for Olivia Coleman pushes this film up to number 11 this week with £287,797 taking its total to £16.2 million.

Bohemian Rhapsody

19 weeks in and the Queen bio-pic is at number 12, helped probably buy the 4 Oscars it picked up including one for star Rami Malek, a £278,829 weekend takes the film to £54.2 million and the 25th highest grossing film in the UK ever.

It was half term week in the UK and The second LEGO movie remained at the top for a third consecutive weekend keeping Instant Family and How To Train Your Dragon 3 to fight it out for second place in an almost static top 5.

Cold Pursuit

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Remaining at the top of the UK box office for a third weekend the brick movie charmed audiences of the UK half term break to the tune of £2.4 million over the weekend.

The film make an incredible £6.6 million over the full week and its total gross in the UK is now £14 million.

Instant Family

Just about hanging on to the number 2 slot the Mark Wahlberg starring film takes £1.67 million over the weekend which boosts its total UK gross to a very respectable £6.4 million.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Only just missing out on the number 2 slot the Dragon threequel has to make do with number 3 this week with a weekend total of £1.66 million.

On the plus side for the film with a total gross of £15.8 million it is now the highest grossing movie released in 2019.

Alita: Battle Angel

The Robert Rodriguez directed Manga live action movie remains at number 4 this week with £870,000 to boost its total UK gross to £7.7 million.

The Kid Who Would Be King

After a disappointing opening weekend last week the fantasy adventure jumps up to number 5 over the half term week to take £651.000 over the weekend.

Over the week the film actually took nearly £2 million which boosts the films total gross to nearly £2.6 million.

Cold Pursuit

Highest new film of the week is at 6, the Liam Neeson starring film makes a poor start to its chart career, maybe influenced by the comments the star made in the press run for the films.

The film debuted with a £631,000 opening weekend.

On The Basis Of Sex

Also new this week is the true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her fight for equal rights in the workplace which makes its debut at 8 with a gross of just shy of half a million pounds.

Bohemian Rhapsody

18 weeks in and the Queen bio-pic starring Rami Malek climbs the box office this week to number 10, its total UK gross is now £53.7 million.

The Favourite

The Olivia Coleman starring movie is at number 12 this week with a total UK gross of £15.6 million.

The follow up to 2014's hit film The Lego Movie makes its debut on the UK box offie this weekend although the 5 year gap has not been kind to the little brick movie.

Alita: Battle Angel

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Movie

Opening to a £4 million debut weekend the second lego movie has taken half that of the opening weekend of the first movie in the series.

It been 5 years since that movie caused a storm and despite the humour being very similar and the film generally getting good reviews The Batman Lego Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie were not well received and may have damaged the brands reputation.

Alita: Battle Angel

Heavily hyped as 'from producer James Cameron' and 'directed by Robert Rodriguez' this live action Japanese cyberpunk manga hits the UK box office at number 2.

Taking £3.1 million on its debut its in the same ball park but a little below Ghost In The Shell from 2017 which had bigger star appeal but reviews weren't as good.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

A single week at the top for the threequel dragon movie as it falls to number 3 this week with £2.7 million and a £9 million total after 10 days of release.

Green Book

Falling to number 4 on its second week of release the drama starring Viggo Mortensen takes just over a million to boost its 10 day total to £3.6 million.

Glass

Loosing steam fast now is the James McAvoy starring film which falls to 5 this week with £560,579 push its total just £9.6 million, it will go over the £10 million mark by next weekend.

Mary Poppins Returns

The disney film continues to be the top film so far of 2019 with a gross of £20 million although its total gross is £43 million.

The Favourite

The big BAFTA winning film is still the top film of the year for films released in 2019 with a £14.6 million total gross and is this week at number 13.

Not a lot of movement on the UK box office this weekend with the top two film remaining the same as M. Night Shyamalan Glass remains the top film in the country.

Vice

Glass

Director M. Night Shyamalan's film remains at the top for a second weekend with a 3 day gross of just shy of £2 million.

This boosts the films total gross to £6.8 million and it's currently the directors 6th biggest film of his career.

Mary Queen Of Scots

The historical drama starring Margot Robbie remains in the runner up spot for a second weekend with a gross of £1.5 million, this boosts its total to just under £5 million after 2 weeks of release.

Vice

Highest new film of the week comes in at number 3, Christian Bale stars in the political drama which takes £1.3 million on its debut.

The film is picking up recognition during the awards season with Bale taking some acting gongs, this could see the film hang around for a while on the box office.

Stan And Ollie

The bio-pic movie has been on the chart for 3 weeks now and takes £1.06 million this weekend, this elevates its total UK gross to £8.2 million making it the third top film of the year.

Mary Poppins returns

Disneys sequel rounds out the top 5 this week with a weekend gross of a shade under a million pound which boosts its total to £42.1 million, it is still the top grossing film of 2019 so far although it was released at the end of 2018.

The Favourite

The awards darling is at 6 this week and with a total gross of £13 million, it is the top grossing film released in 2019 so far.
