Mad Max 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.

News from around the web

As we come to the end of 2015 it has been revealed by Excipio, a company who tracks data like this, which film got pirated the most.

The film is 2014's Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Matthew McConaughey about space travel to another galaxy.

In the UK the film was the 13 highest grossing film of 2014 and the 10th highest grossing movie across the world in the same year.

The film was downloaded an estimated 47 million times, shockingly this is 17 million higher than last years top illegally downloaded film Wolf of Wall Street.

Here are the top 10 most illegally downloaded film of 2015

  1. Interstellar
  2. Fast and Furious 7
  3. Avengers Age of Ultron
  4. Jurassic World
  5. Mad Max Fury Road
  6. American Sniper
  7. Fifty Shades of Grey
  8. The Hobbit Battle Of The Five Armies
  9. Terminator Genesis
  10. Kingsman The Secret Service

Brand new at the top of the video charts on it's debut week of release is the Dwayne Johnson starring vehicle San Andreas.

The film was released into UK cinemas on May 29th 2015 where it debuted at the top after “The Rock” did a whirlwind of publicity around the film.

A £4.6 million debut was greeted with a 60% drop the following week, a 6 week run on the box office was it gross £11.3 million in the UK.

Not a massive UK hit it did very well across the globe grossing $470.4 million and sits as the 155th top grossing movie of all time.

Mad Max Fury Road falls from the top where it debuted last week into number 2 this week.

Also new on the UK video charts this week are: Insidious Chapter 3 getting ready for the Halloween season at number 3 and Pierce Bronson in Survivor which was a small hit from earlier this year.

The summer is over and so comes to an end the summer blockbuster season where the big money for films is made.

As with many years sequels and series is where the big money is and leading the way in 2015 is the return of the Jurassic Dinosaur series after 14 years away in the form of Jurassic World.

Jurassic World took £63.6 million over the summer and will probably end up being the top film of the year as well, although there is still one film which may burst its bubble.

Animation scores big again this year and the second and third biggest movies are Minions which takes £44 million and Pixar's return Inside Out which has taken £30.6 million to date.

This years sequel to Avengers Assemble may not have made the numbers that Disney were hoping but it still did very well and is the 4th top film of the summer with £30 million.

Rounding out the top 5 is a bit of a surprise with Mad Max Fury Road taking £17.1 million, the return to the Mad Max world after 30 years proving a hit with critics and the public alike.

Biggest losers of the season are Terminator Genisys which didn't excite a modern audience, Ted 2 which simple didn't bring on the laughs of the original and Magic Mike XXL which didn't live up to the erotic expectations of its core market.

Check out all the top summer films at the UK box office.

Jurassic World is still there dominating the world box office chart and this week very nearly made it to the magic $1 Billion mark.

It will make it there in the coming days and in doing so will be the fastest film to make the mark in box office history, the current holder being Avengers.

A decline in box office of nearly 50% means Jurassic World takes $262 million from 67 countries over the last week, with some more countries to come this could start to challenge Avatar as the top film of all time.

Pixar release Inside Out, their first film in a couple of years, this week to great review and a world take of $132 million from 38 countries.

With many more countries to go Inside Out could be one of Pixar's biggest hits, Pixar films tend to have good milage and with the school holidays on us this could get repeat viewing.

With Inside Out and Jurassic World taking a large bulk of the world grosses this week for a film to come in 3rd with $29 million is great, and from only 3 countries, but SPL 2 has done just that.

Here is the world box office top 10 this week.

  1. Jurassic World - $262,518,525
  2. Inside Out - $132,056,000
  3. SPL 2 A Time for Consequences - $29,000,000
  4. San Andreas - $27,040,000
  5. Spy - $20,100,000
  6. Minions - $12,300,000
  7. The Classified File - $8,500,000
  8. Mad Max Fury Road - $7,715,000
  9. Insidious Chapter 3 - $7,112,000
  10. Dragon Ball Z Resurrection of F - $7,000,000

San Andreas this week becomes the top grossing film across the world on it's debut weekend of release.

Released in 61 countries the film rakes in $113.2 million, far outstripping the rest of the completion, it's nearest film is last weeks top film Tomorrowland.

Tomorrowland falls to to number 2 and is keeping Mad Max Fury Road at bay which is at number 3.

Doing very well in just 1 country, Japan, is the 3D animated film Stand by Me Doraemon which takes $30 million.

Avengers Age of Ultron finished the top 5.

Here is the full World Gross top 10:

  1. San Andreas - $113,215,000
