Taken 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.

The movie was fast tracked to streaming at is the number 4 film this week.

With the first quarter of the year over and most of the cinemas closed across the US it a good time to pause for a moment and take a look at the top film during the first 3 months of 2020.

Bad Boys For Life

Twenty five years after the first teaming of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence first hit cinemas the third film in the buddy cop movie beats all expectations.

The movie was a mega smash at US box office with a total gross of $204 Million, and it was still at cinemas before the close down.

1917

The movie was the hot tip to sweep the Oscars this year before everyone decided Parasite was the better film, but it didn't hurt Sam Mandes War Drama at the box office.

The movie was still a hit and pulled in a very good $158 Million at the US box office.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Despite getting a very mixed reaction from the Star Wars hard core, the much hailed end of the saga movie still pulled in the audiences with over $500 Million in the US box office in total.

In 2020 the movie took and impressive $153 Million.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Despite the early signs suggest this would be a flop the redesign of the main character Sonic pushed it to a $145 Million US gross.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Dwayne Johnsons sequel to the smash hit Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle didn't quite hit the same note but it was still a smash hit taking $141 Million in 2020, it has taken $316 Million in total.

Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)

Warner Bros. were maybe expecting a bit more from the Harley Quinn movie but it still managed a quite respectable $84 Million, no flop but no smash hit.

Greta Gerwig's adaptation of the classic novel was praised by critics and audiences alike and took $78 Million in the first quarter of 2020 in the US, it has taken $108 Million in total.

This Robert Downey Jr. vehicle was never going to reach the heights of anything with Iron Man in but the film still did better than expected considering the bad reviews, it took $77 Million.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man

Just creeping in before the American coronavirus shutdown the Universal monster movie took a very respectable $64 Million, its box office run was cut short and the movie is now available on streaming services.

1917

Sam Mandes film is by far the top grossing film of 2020 so far, with a total gross of £43 Million it has taken more than double that of the number film.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Despite the difficult production and fan feedback for the design of Sonic when the first trailer came out, director Jeff Fowler went back to the drawing board and re-did the central character and it seems to have worked.

The movie ended up grossing a very good £19 Million, far than than was expected.
