Misery 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.

On the Uk box office this week we have the latest X-Men film taking over at the top on its debut week of release ending Captain America's 3 week run.

£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.

Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.

Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.

Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.

20th May 2016

It was a close run thing this week between Captain America: Civil War and The Angry Birds Movie making its debut but in the end the Marvel film won.

Civil War now makes it three weeks at the top and this week adds £2.7 million to its gross which has now soared to £32.1 million.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing of the year and before it finishes its run it should beat Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, currently at 4 and 3 respectively.

The Angry Birds Movie is the highest new film at number 2 which on its debut takes £2.1 million.

Aiming squarely at kids but also appealing to adults that hooked on the game the film loosely follows the plot of the games.

The film should do well over the coming half term but will have limited appeal after that.

Longest stay by a film on the box office this week is Zootopia with 8 weeks and the highest grossing movie is The Jungle Book at £39.3 million after 5 weeks.
