Straight Outta Compton 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

It was a relatively close race at the UK box office this week, and one with low figures, but in the end Sausage Party remained at the top for a second week.

The Seth Rogan written film took £1.2 million on its second weekend of release which brings its total gross in the UK to £5.3 million.

Highest new film of the week is the remake of Ben-Hur which lands at number 2 this week with a debut gross on £1.05 million.

It hard to judge how this compares to the 1959 classic as attendance figures are hard to come by but it is considered a classic and it would have grossed nearly £100 million in todays money.

Also new this week is the US smash hit Don't Breathe at number 4 and Kubo and The Two Strings at number 5, Hell or High Water at number 7.

The BFG is the longest stay on the box office this week having been around for 8 weeks while Finding Dory is the highest total grossing movie with £40.8 million.
