Soldier 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.

First up at cinemas this week is Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, an movie directed by J.J. Abrams who also directed Super 8 in 2011 which grossed £7 Million in the UK and grossed $260,095,986 globally.

Check back on Monday to see where these cinema releases end up on the Weekend Box Office Chart.

Come back next week when there are 3 new releases.

  • Spies In Disguise, Thursday, 26th December
  • Playing With Fire, Thursday, 26th December

Based on the best-selling comic book, Bloodshot gets its first trailer, and its full of blood and bullets.

The film follows a soldier who was killed in action and is brought back to life in a secret government experiment to create the perfect killing machine.

The film stars Diesel along side Guy Pierce and it is directed by Dave Wilson who is a special effects artist for which there is clearly a lot of in the movie.

The film is due for release on 21st February 2020.

There have been a number of takes on the Predator story from the original John McTiernan directed classic and its sequel to the not that terrible team up with the Alien franchise and then the last effort was the Nimród Antal directed Predators

Now we get the Shane Black directed The Predator which today gets its first teaser trailer, and it looks like were going back to basics.

Its not clear from the trailer any elements of the story but we get a young boy opening a box and we get a soldier being interrogated, how do the two get connected?

Check out the trailer for yourself below.

Still selling enough tickets to keep it on top for a third week is Dunkirk which holds off a strong debut from The Emoji Movie.

War film Dunkirk from director Christopher Nolan keeps pulling in the punters and stays on top for an incredible third weekend with a gross of £4.6 million.

This brings the films total to £28 million with no sign of slowing down yet, and with a weak load of new releases next week we could see a fourth weekend on top.

Coming in at number 2 this week is The Emoji Movie which takes a very good £2.7 million on its debut.

With the summer holidays in full swing this is a timely release and it could mean the film stays in the upper reaches of the chart for a while to come.

Big budget movie Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets from Luc Besson should have been a massive hit but we have a bit of a flop on our hands as the film debuts at number 3 with £1.8 million.

With 6 weeks on the chart Baby Driver is this week longest running film and with nearly £40 million in total grosses Despicable Me 3 is the highest total grossing film.
