Mother! 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.

UK Box Office Chart History
News from around the web
23rd September 2017

The power of IT at the UK box office was far to strong this week and with ease it remains at the top of the box office while Judy Dench stars in the highest new entry.

Warner Bros. continue to market the horror film IT to great effect as the film takes £6 million which is only a 40% drop from its debut.

This brings the films total gross to an excellent £21.1 million from 10 days of release which is putting the film on for easily a £35 million total take in the UK.

Highest new film of the week is Victoria and Abdul directed by Stephen Frears and starring Judi Dench.

The film takes £1.8 million for the weekend which places it at number 2 on this weeks chart.

Also new this week is Mother! which enters at number 3, and with rave reviews and much publicity takes a quite disappointing £0.8 million.

American Assassin is also new at 4 and The Jungle Bunch makes a new entry at number 6.

For the fifth straight week the longest running film is Despicable Me 3 now with 12 weeks while Dunkirk is the highest total grossing movie with £55 million.

18th September 2017

For the second weekend IT reigned at the US box office, while the battle for highest new film went to American Assassin rather than Mother as some expected.

Grossing $60 million on its second weekend of release Warner Bros. have a true hit on their hands with IT, for a horror film, as it has been marketed, a 50% drop is fantastic.

This weekend gross takes the films total gross in the US to $218 million after 2 weekend of release, this should be enough to see the film go well over $300 million at the box office.

After much hype the Jennifer Lawrence starring Mother! could not beat American Assassin as the top new film, the former enters the chart at number 2 with $14.8 million.

Maybe this is a lesson for over hyped film as Assassin didn’t get nearly as much marketing dollars and yes outgrossed it 2 to 1 on their debuts.

Mother! did come in at number 3 with $7.5 million, although to put things into perspective IT at number 1 made more that the rest of the box office put together.

Once again Spider-Man Homecoming does the double whammy of longest running film with 11 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie with $330 million in US grosses to date.
