Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street 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.

It's 3 weeks at the top of the Box Office for Les Miserable this week with competition from 2 other Oscar contenders proving not enough to remove it.

A strong 3rd weekend gross of £4 million brings the total gross to £24.6 million for the musical.

With Django Unchained staying put at number 2 it meant that highest new film Lincoln entered the chart at 3. The Spielberg directed bio-pic of the famous president managed £s;1.7 million on it's debut.

This time last year another Spielberg film was holding firm at the top of the box office, War Horse took just over 2 million pound for the weekend. The highest new film was George Clooney in The Descendants which took £1.8 million and landed at 2.

Five years ago Tim Burtion directed Johnny Depp in the music version of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street which debuted at the top with £4.5 million for the weekend.

Ten years ago it was a fairy static top five with Eminem holding the top spot with 8 Mile and £2.5 million for the weekend, you had to look as low as 5 for a new film, I, Spy with Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson debuted there with £0.8 million.

Fifteeen year ago was the debut weekend for what would become the highest grossing film of all time for twelve years, Titanic debuted at number 1 with £4.8 million, interestingly not a blockbusting debut.
