The BBFC and 12 years of 12A: does the system work?

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The BBFC has released a video explaining how the 12A system works. But does it make sense, and how effective is it?

In mid-July, it emerged that the Tom Cruise action movie Jack Reacher had received a number of complaints for the intensity of its violence. Jack Reacher, you may recall, was released in a slightly cut form with a 12A certificate last year, and remained an intense and quite violent adaptation of Lee Child’s source thriller novel.

Complaints about the film emerged in the BBFC’s annual report, which stated that a total of 36 people had picked fault with the Board’s rating. “Despite a number of reductions made to scenes of violence to achieve a 12A certificate,” the BBFC said, “those who contacted us considered the film too violent, dark and sadistic for 12-year-olds, and inappropriately presented the hero as a vigilante figure.”

BBFC launches 12A cinema advert

18 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

British Board of Film Classification aims to increase public understanding of 12A rating after research revealed 27% of cinema-goers were unclear about its meaning.

The BBFC has created an advert to help increase awareness of what the 12A cinema rating means, which will screen in cinemas over the summer from Aug 1.

It follows research that suggested 27% of cinema-goers were unclear about the meaning of the certificate, despite a record number of films being rated 12A in 2013.

A total of 321 movies were given the classification in 2013, including The Hunger Games and Gravity, up from 234 in 2012.

A film rated 12A is generally suitable for children aged 12 and over, but a younger child may see the film if accompanied by an adult.

The advert reminds parents to check the BBFCinsight – which explains the key classification issues in a film – on the BBFC website for every 12A film before they take a child to see it.

First Trailer for Horns with Daniel Radcliffe

28 July 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Making an appearance out in Comic-Con this weekend, Alexander Aja’s upcoming fantasy/horror-thriller Horns is set to light up the box office this Halloween.

Daniel Radcliffe is front and centre, adding some impressive star firepower for the genre’s biggest weekend of the year. The first teaser trailer had previously leaked online earlier in the month, but was swiftly taken down in an effort to keep it under wraps until the film’s official debut out in San Diego. And now Radius has launched a full-length trailer, confirming all your suspicions about this being something to look forward to this October.

Radcliffe conquered the genre two years ago when The Woman in Black turned its $15m. budget into almost $130m. worldwide, and he looks set to bring audiences back to theatres once more.

Horns Trailer with Daniel Radcliffe Must Watch

26 July 2014 4:23 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Harry Potter may well have kickstarted Daniel Radcliffe’s career and now Horns is the movie that finally cements him as a rock solid actor and not just the kid that messed around with a magic wand. For the last few years Radcliffe has been moving away from all things Potter with the likes of “The Woman In Black” and threading the boards in Equus and most recently on Broadway, where Radcliffe and Pat Shortt have finished their long run of The Cripple Of Innishman. I’ve always said that Radcliffe is a decent actor and if he could shake the Harry Potter vibes, then he’s on his way to some serious, potentially award winning, performances. Horns is just the thing that the actor needs. It’s spooky, it’s funny, it’s dark and Daniel Radcliffe looks phenomenal here. In the aftermath of his girlfriends mysterious death, Ig »

Horns Trailer Startles With Surprising Humor; Strong Performance From Daniel Radcliffe

25 July 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Wow.  For some reason I was kind of expecting Horns to not be any good or, at least, not be something I’d be into.  I’ve actually been carrying this perception around since the film started shooting some time ago.  But this trailer just changed my mind and I’m now looking forward to it in a major way.  I was totally underestimating this movie and certainly wasn’t expecting this kind of biting sense of humor.  Especially from director Alexandre Aja, a talented guy whose work I have yet to be able to connect with.  Now, thanks to this trailer from today’s presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con, I’m legitimately enthusiastic. In this adaptation of the Joe Hill novel, Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig Perrish, the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple).  Hit the jump to check out the new Horns trailer and poster, »

Comic-Con: Daniel Radcliffe charms

25 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

If there is a theme emerging at this year’s Comic-Con it is British talent making splashy show debuts and Daniel Radcliffe did not disappoint as he delighted Hall H on Friday (25) to promote Horns.

The film premiered at Toronto 2013, where the world got the first chance to see Radcliffe as a young man who sprouts horns after his girlfriend is found brutally murdered.

“I like films that defy genre,” said Radcliffe, who fielded questions from plenty of fans of his work in the Harry Potter franchise and beyond.

“He’s somebody who’s gong through a torrid time in his life and is trying to keep what is left of his humanity around him,” said the actor.

“Physically he is turning into the devil but inside he is still himself but it’s the world around him that is turning into hell,” said director Alex Aja.

Daniel Radcliffe gets dark in the new Horns poster

24 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Daniel Radcliffe is no stranger to making movies with a darker tone (many of the Harry Potter movies were very dark, The Woman in Black was a horror) but his upcoming film Horns is taking a turn down an even more twisted path.

This Halloween we will see Radcliffe with literal horns growing out of his head on the big screen, but if you can’t wait until then, check out the latest poster for the film that was released on author Joe Hill's official Tumblr just in time for Comic-Con.

The film, based on the popular novel by Joe Hill (son of horror genius Stephen King), follows Ig Perrish, who wakes up with horns growing out of his head following the mysterious murder of his girlfriend (played by Juno Temple). That’s all evident in this poster, with Radcliffe and his horns looking like an undead version of Mr. »

Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 25th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in small indies and displayed something of a flare for comedy.

Radcliffe will soon be seen tickling funnybones in What If and Judd Apatow's Trainwreck, so ahead of these upcoming roles we take a look back at 6 hilarious moments...

1. "I am Harry Potter"

CBS Films Shake-Up: Terry Press remains President, as Wolfgang Hammer Departs for Digital Content Studio

22 July 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Terry Press is solely in charge of CBS Films after her co-president Wolfgang Hammer quietly stepped down last May, a company spokesman confirmed.

Hammer will reportedly continue to play a consulting role at CBS Corporate, advising on digital content. The studio also laid off five people, including Bob Kaplowitz, a senior vice president of distribution, and several administrative employees.

More headcount changes may take place, according to an individual with knowledge, but no layoffs are imminent.

The studio is getting ready to release the Daniel Radcliffe romantic comedy “What If” on Aug. 1 and just wrapped production on “The Duff” with Bella Thorne and Ken Jeong. The company is expected to announced another homegrown production in the coming weeks and will likely be an active buyer at the Toronto Film Festival.

Jack Reacher most complained about movie as UK sees rise in 12A rating

17 July 2014 3:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2013 saw a record rise in movies granted the 12A certificate.

In total 321 big screen releases were rated 12A last year, including box office hit The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and the Oscar-winning Gravity.

The number represents a sharp climb from the 234 12A titles in 2012. However, according to BBFC director David Cooke, there is still some consumer confusion about what the certificate means.

Cooke told the BBC that a "significant minority" of 10,000 people polled - 27% - were unclear about the rating.

"It's inherently a slightly more complicated explanation than most," he said, adding that "parents are far better placed than us to judge whether a particular film would give their child too intense an experience or not".

12A releases have now overtaken 15 certificate films. The rating means that children under the age of 12 must be accompanied to the film by an adult.

As Jack Reacher attracts the most complaints, the BBFC reveals it classified record numbers of 12A movies in 2013...

News

New data released regarding film classification in the UK has revealed that 2013 saw a record number of movies being given the 12A certificate.

In all, 321 films classified by the BBFC in 2013 were given a 12A, up from 234 in 2012. And, for the first time, the number of 12A classified movies overtook the number of films getting a 15 certificate.

The data has come to light in the annual report from the British Board Of Film Classification, which acknowledged that there was a "significant minority" of people who remain puzzled as to what 12A actually stands for.

The most complained about of all 12A films was the Tom Cruise-headlined Jack Reacher, which received 26 complaints. The year before, The Woman In Black was the movie that received the most complaints over its certificate, when »

Daniel Radcliffe Travels to Hell in First Trailer for Horns

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Daniel Radcliffe has (more or less) done a good job shedding his Harry Potter image by appearing in some very dark (The Woman in Black) and very funny (A Young Doctor's Notebook) projects that take a lot of narrative and genre risks. And he looks to be continuing that trend, as seen in the first teaser for Alexandre Aja's (The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension) latest film Horns.Radcliffe plays a young man who is the main suspect in his girlfriend's murder. While protesting his innocence, he sprouts a pair of devil-like horns that cause those around him to display the most petty behaviour. Kurt Halfyard saw it at Tiff last year, and had a mixed reaction, though praised the performances. Personally, I'm always intrigued by...

Doctor Who: Frank Cottrell Boyce is a genius, says Steven Moffat

4 July 2014 3:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BBC One has confirmed that Frank Cottrell Boyce will script an episode of Doctor Who.

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, described the award-winning novelist as a "genius".

Cottrell Boyce recently let slip that he would be penning an episode of the sci-fi series, calling it "a pleasure" to write for Peter Capaldi's new Doctor.

Known for his work in children's fiction and for his collaborations with film director Michael Winterbottom, he also worked with Danny Boyle in scripting the well-received Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

"Doctor Who is born anew in the mind of a genius!" said Moffat. "Frank's script is pure magic - and everything I could have hoped for from the genius behind the Olympics Opening Ceremony!"

Cottrell Boyce added: "I was flabbergasted to be asked to write an episode - partly because I've been so absorbed in the last few »
