The Krays 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.

On the UK video chart this week the Osacar nominated film Bridge of Spies makes its debut at the top.

Bridge of Spies was released at the UK cinemas on 27th November 2015 and made its debut at number 4 of that week with a £1.6 million weekend.

The film had a rather good 8 week run on box office top 15 before dropping out the chart during its awards buzz.

The film managed to make £7.4 million at the UK box office during its run, worldwide the film managed to gross $160.9 million.

Last weeks top film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls in to second place after a couple of weeks at the top.

Also new this week is Fall of The Krays at number 6 and The Lion Guard Return of The Roar at number 19.

At the top of the UK video charts this week the Krays bio-pic Legend remains at the top despite a rush of new films.

The highest of the new film is Maze Runner The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the 2014 film The Maze Runner.

The Scorch Trials was released in UK cinemas on 11 September 2015 and it entered the chart at number 2, behind Legend! A 6 week cinema run saw the film take a UK gross of £8.6 million in the UK, worldwide the film managed $312.3 million making it the 331st highest grossing world wide move, in the US it took $81 million.

Also new this week is: Sicario at number 3, Macbeth at number 4, Miss You Already at number 7 and The Walk at number 8.

There is no move at the top of the UK video chart this week as Disney's Cinderella keeps a tight hold of the number 1 spot for a second week. Highest new film is at number 2, a DTV (direct to video) film about the Kray brothers called Rise of the Krays.

Released to coincide with the cinematic release of Legend starring Tom Hardy as the twin brothers. Rise of the Krays stars Simon Cotton and Kevin Leslie as the twins and documents their early life before their infamy as gangsters.

The film was released in 16th May 2015 but made no impact on the box office.

Also new this week are: Far From The Madding Crowd and number 3, Monsters Dark Continent at 4.
