Payback 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.

2nd April 2014

This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.

Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.

Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.

New releases this week are:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Muppets Most Wanted
The Legend of Hercules
The Past
20 Feet From Stardom

Also worth a mention is that after 2 weeks off the top 15, Frozen has returned at number 15.

This time last year The Croods held onto the top spot holding off G.I. Joe: Retaliation which entered at two.

Five years ago Nicolas Cage starred in the number one films Knowing which also debuted there nocking Marley and Me to number two.

Ten years ago The Passion of Christ stayed at the top keeping Dawn of the Dead at bay debuting at number two.

Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie took the number one spot on it's debut knocking Waking Ned Devine down to three with Payback entering at two.
