The Jackal 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.

Middle Earths 4 week dominance of the Box Office ends this week with Les Misérables takes over at the top knocking The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey down to fourth.

Ang Lee's Life of Pi holds firm as the number 2 film and Gangster Squad is a new entry at 3.

The Tom Hooper directed film, based on the stage play musical, debuts at the top with a brilliant £8.1 million pound weekend gross. The highest debut for all involved except Anne Hathaway who scored a bigger opening weekend with last years The Dark Knight Rises.

Life of Pi continues to do well as the awards start to pile in and increases it's total gross to £21.9 million while Gangster Squad is new at 4 with an opening weekend of £2.1 million.

This time last year Spielberg was hitting number 1 with War Horse on it's debut weekend taking nearly £4 million and knocking The Iron Lady from the top.

Five years ago I Am Legend was still doing good numbers at the top with £2 million after 3 weeks while Charlie Wilson's War with Tom Hanks was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers still dominated the Uk box office and Martin Scorsese had the top new film with Gangs of New York at 2.

Fifteen years ago The Jackal with Bruce Willis was at the top on it's debut weekend with a gross of £1.4 million. Twenty years ago Bram Stokers Dracula from Francis Ford Coppola was hitting the top spot on it's opening knocking The Bodyguard into the runner up spot.
