Deadpool Movie Gets A 15 Rating In UK

Deadpool-15-certificate

As mentioned yesterday on The Graham Norton Show with Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool has been rated at a 15 certificate in the United Kingdom.

The 15 certificate is issued by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), to state that in its opinion, a film, video recording, or game should not be seen or purchased by a person under 15 years old.

 

The rating, according to the BBFC's website, is for "strong bloody violence, strong language, [and] sex references."

Appearing on Graham Norton yesterday, Reynolds talked about the decision to make the movie R-rated, talking about the stigma of doing so for a big blockbuster in the U.S. When he noted that it got a 15 Certificate, Norton joked, "We can take it."

"And in China, it's rated go f--k yourself," Reynolds joked, referring to the film being banned in the country.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

  1. 15 seems a low rating considering what they were saying, unless ours has been censored down from the US version

    BBFC says it passed through without edits.
