Trainspotting 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.

2nd February 2017

Making its debut on the UK box office this week is Sing which lands at the top knocking off La La Land, and in a surprise move keeps of T2 Trainspotting.

Sing is an animated feature from the same stable as Despicable Me and features the voice talent from the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Reece Witherspoon.

The film makes its debut with a rather spectacular £10.4 million debut weekend which makes it the 66 top opening of all time.

Sing replaces La La Land which falls to number 3 this week with a £3.1 million 3rd weekend and a £20.9 million total UK gross.

Missing out on the top spot is the highly anticipated T2 Trainspotting which lands at number 2, the film is an 18 rating so the audience compared to Sing is limited, but £5.1 million is good and any other week would have easily seen the film enter at the top.

Also new this week is Hacksaw Ridge from director Mel Gibson at number 5 with £1.4 million and Rahm at number 7 with £521,000.

Highest total grossing film on the UK box office this week is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which after 7 weeks has grossed £65.2 million while the longest running film is Trolls with 13 weeks.

1st January 2017

We've looked at the films to be released in 2017 and found it a tough year to narrow down to 10 films, hence there are many potentially excellent films missed off this list.

After much debate and arguing, and some falling out and fist fighting, here is our list of films the 25thFrame staff are hoping will be the best of the bunch in 2017.

Blade Runner 2049
Its 35 years later, 35 years where a sequel has been promised many time, but here we are, the trailer released only a few weeks ago was a tantalising sample of what is to come.

No Ridley Scott this time but director Denis Villeneuve looks like he can deliver the good, and with Harrison Ford back and Ryan Gosling starring we could be in for a treat.

Star Wars Episode VIII
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story delivered but didn't wow but the follow up to 2015's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens should deliver in spades and its possibly our most anticipated film of the year, and we have to wait until December!

Rian Johnson has directed this instalment which is no bad thing, and as with all Star Wars films the ensemble cast all return, with the recent passing of Carrie Fisher it will be a sad moment if they complete the story arc of Princess Leah, but one which is necessary.

T2 Trainspotting
20 years after Trainspotting the guys are back for another dose of hard hitting, drug taking antics that will have us transfixed again.

Danny Boyle returns to direct with original stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner all returning.

Ghost In The Shell
Scarlett Johansson controversially stars in this live action version of the acclaimed manga animation, but judging from the trailer they have hit the right note.

Rupert Sanders directs what promises to be one hell of a ride in the special effects heavy take that potentially no one will understand.

War For The Planet of The Apes
The third in the excellent prequel films which tells the story of how earth became The Planet of The Apes.

Special effects and motion capture are now at a point where we can truly believe that these apes have personalities and intelligence.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2
Just from the trailer alone you know you want to see this and Baby Groot will be the highlight of the cinema year, and the film actually looks really good.

James Gunn returns to direct Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper in this Marvel franchise film.

Alien Covenant
Sequel to Prometheus and prequel to Alien, directed by Ridley Scott, not too much riding on this then.

Prometheus was Alien enough to be part of the series but individual enough to be a film in its own right, looking at the fist trailer for Alien Covenant this could bridge the gap really well, we hope so.

Fifty Shades Darker
The original film delivered far more than the source material dictated, and it was actually a good film, worryingly this time Sam Taylor-Johnson is not returning to direct.

James Foley is directing this instalment but Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning so the chemistry should still be there in this much darker tale.

The Mummy
A reboot of the 1999 franchise which spawned 3 movies, but got worse with each film, this time Tom Cruise stars and the first trailer looks like we could have a winner on our hands.

Pitch Perfect 3
Our guilty pleasure, the first film was one of the highlights of 2012 and although not nearly as good part 2 was still a lot of fun, time will tell if the idea is getting a little thin now.
