The Business 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.

Second week of release for the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 keeps it at the top with A Dogs Purpose coming in at 2 as the highest new film.

With a 50%+ drop in its weekend gross Guardians this week takes £6 million in its box office takings.

This takes the Chris Pratt starring movie to £27.4 million after 10 days of release, the film is current doing almost double the business of the original Guardians movie at this point.

Highest new film of the week is a little known comedy film called A Dogs Purpose, starring Dennis Quaid and directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

It was a US hit a month or so back and after taking £1.3 million on its debut is set to become a hit on this side of the Atlantic as well.

Also new this week is Sleepless at number 6, MIndhorn at number 8 and Unlocked at number 10, a low grossing top 10 this week means all these film took less than half a million on their debut.

This weeks longest stay on the chart is Get Out which has been around for 8 week while top new film is once again Beauty and The Beast which has now taken £71 million and is the 8th top film ever in the UK.

8th June 2009

When Spiderman 4 was released back in May 2007 I distinctly remember reading and hearing that the cast would not be returning for anymore and this was the end of the story and end of the road for Sam Raimi and his cast. After the amount of money that the franchise has made it seems not that Raimi and Toby Maguire and on board for a fourth instalment.

When I think back at how good and fresh the original was and then how good and action packed its sequel was I sort of forgive the film maker for the under exciting and run of the mill 3rd instalment, lets face it, it wasn't that good, in fact in places it was just terrible, but it was the close of the trilogy.

Lets now leave the franchise alone, maybe let another group revisit it down the line, maybe find a new angle or something, but lets leave it alone. But no, no no no, Sony being in the business for the money, the trilogy has made a ton of that and comic book heroes raking in big bucks at the box office a fourth is going to be with us by about 2010 I'd say.

Lets just hope that a new story is devised and a fresh new group of characters are brought into play and we dont have baddie overkill which ruined the 3rd film. It's in good hands lets just hope its not used just to bring in the bucks for Sony on the back of the good name of Spiderman.
