Director Channing Godfrey Peoples's story of American Beauty Queen pageant is given a 15 age rating in the UK by the BBFC.

The movie was released in the US during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and did reasonably well considering it was only released in a handful of drive-in movie theatres.

The movie stars Nicole Beharie and Kendrick Sampson and has been critically praised, although movies that have strong American themes often dont do well in the UK.

Here is a breakdown of the BBFC ratings decision.

  • BBFC age rating: 15
  • Release date: 25th September 2020
  • Reason for certificate: strong language
  • Official runtime: 99 minutes (1 hour and 39 minutes)

The Movie was passed uncut.

Disney hold on to the top spot this week with their latest animated big screen movie Big Hero 6, and in a repeat of last week it only just out grosses Kingsman The Secret Service which holds at 2.

Another £2.5 million over the weekend sees the Hero 6's UK gross rise to £7.5 million from it's 11 days of release, including preview screenings.

Interestingly it was the weekend which gave Hero 6 the top spot, looking at the chart for the full week, Kingsman takes the top spot by nearly a million pound.

Highest new film of the week is from the Aardman animated studio, Shaun The Sheep Movie enters at number 4.

Shaun takes ££2 million for the weekend, not the numbers that Wallace and Gromit are used to but it's up there with other Aardman films.

Also new on the UK box office are: Jupiter Ascending from the Wachowski siblings at 4 and Selma at number 6.
