The British board of film censors have come under criticism from the British Society Of Cinematographers for the 12A certification it awarded to the latest Spiderman 3 movie which was released in the UK on the 5th May.
The certification of a 12A says that any children under the age of 12 should not see the film unless accompanied by an adult but fans say that this is not fair for younger Spiderman fans and that the film does not warrant a 12A certification.
Speculation that the BBFC has awarded the 12A in an attempt to raise the box office revenue was denied but fans say that by awarding the movie a 12A means that the box office stands to make a further £30million in tickets sales to adults as they are obliged to accompany their 11 year olds and under and that the movie should have been awarded a PG or less as it was in the US.
