The Expendables 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.

Following the path laid down by its US box office release, Straight Outta Compton this week climbs to the top of the UK box office on its debut.

A low week overall for the box office grosses and Compton's weekend take is £2.4 million, it is higher than last weeks top film.

Last weeks top film was Paper Town which this week takes a big shove down the box office and ends up at number 8 this week.

A £452,953 second weekend gross brings the film to £3.4 in total with the prospect of a very short 3 week run.

Worth noting is the run of Inside Out which once again is at 2 and again topps the chart if we count Monday - Sunday figures.<> Also new this week is Hitman Agent 47 at number 3 and 45 Years new at number 10, Zak Efrons We Are Your Friends is considered a flop with a number 13 entry.

18th August 2015

In a mixed up week at the UK box office, using figures including 2 days of previews Adam Sandlers Pixels takes over a the top, the true winner is Inside Out.

If you take away the 2 days of previews Pixar's Inside Out is by far the biggest film of the weekend, and indeed of the week with only a 3% drop from the previous weeks takings.

But lets not take away from the given champion and Pixels duly takes over at the top of the UK box office with a weekend gross of £2.7 million.

After a slamming from critics last weeks top film, Fantastic Four, makes a dramatic fall from the top and lands at number 6 this week with a total gross after 2 weekends of £4.8 million.

The re-image of the superhero franchise simply hasn't worked and the new film will come no-where near the 2005 version which took £12.4 million or it's sequel 4: Rise of The Silver Surfer which took almost the same amount.

Other new film this week include The Man From U.N.C.L.E. at number 4 and Trainwreck, on a limited release, at number 5, Simon Pegg's new film Absolutely Anything enters at number 9.

Ten years ago

Fifteen years ago
Gone In 60 Seconds stayed at the top for another week while, no new entries inside the top 5 so Rules of Engagement entered highest at number 6.

Twenty years ago
