Beats 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.

Who would have thought it, Robert Downey Jr. stars in the new movie Dolittle which above expectations easily beats out Margot Robbie and the Birds Of Prey to make its debut at the top leaving the ladies to debut at number 2, meanwhile 1917 falls to number 3 and Oscar darling Parasite makes a good debut.


Despite getting a good panning from the critics the money paying audience did not listen and the Robert Downey Jr. starring vehicle makes its debut at the top with an excellent gross of £5 Million.

This is getting on fos double that of the new film at number 2 this weekend and far better than anyone could have expected.

It will have a big problem beating the new Sonic The Hedgehog film released next weekend but it can at least bask in its glory this week.

Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)

Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)

I'm sure Warner Bros. expected this to fly in at the top of the box office this weekend but the film has come up short being beaten by Dolittle.

The Margot Robbie starring movie debuts at number 2 this week with £2.8 million.


After spending an excellent 4 weeks at the top of the UK box office Sam Mandes war movie, which missed out on the best film Oscar this weekend, falls to number 3 with £2.2 Million.

This pushes the film total gross to £35.8 Million after 5 weeks of release.


What turned out to be the Oscar darling at this years ceremony makes id debut on the UK box office at number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million.

The film will go into more cineas in the coming week so expect next weeks weekend gross to maybe be higher than this week.

bad Boys For Life

Will Smith and martin Lawrence fall to number 5 this week with a little over a Million over the weekend pushing the films total gross to £12.3 Million after 3 weeks.

Frozen II

Disney's sequel movie falls to number 15 this weekend but it has the longerst run on the box offie with 12 weeks and the highest total gross with £52.9 Million.

13th November 2019

Spending an unprecedented sixth weekend at the top of the UK box office Joker easily beats out any new comers, The Aeronauts is the top new film coming in at number 2.


There is simply no stopping the Todd Philips directed movie at the moment as the DC villain movie makes it a cool 6 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of £1.6 Million.

The film this week became the top grossing 15 age rated film in the UK with a total gross of £54.3 Million.

The movie is also the highest total grossing film on this weeks box office and has the longest run at 6 weeks.

The Aeronauhts

The Aeronauts

Highest new film of the week flies in at number 2, although the movie has a Monday release and the weekend take is half the £1.04 Million being reported.

The film is an Amazon produced movie and will disappear onto the companies streaming service soon and its box office taking will clearly suffer.

Disney's sequel movie had a slow start but has sustained it box office over a 4 week release so far with £1.02 Million this weekend.

The Todd Phillips directed Joker hits the top of the US box office ahead of expectation and breaks the American October debut record while Abominable falls to number 2.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix as the title character the DC villain movie has had its fair share of controversy, but good reviews, especially the performance of Phoenix has helped it to a $96.2 Million debut weekend.

This beats the record for the top October opening, held by last years superhero villain movie Venom, which took $80.3 Million this weekend last year.

This is a very different film and with Oscar potential for lead actor this could have a good run.
