BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a live action version of the classic Disney animation in which a woman is imprisoned in an enchanted castle.

Violence

A character is knocked unconscious with a heavy punch to the face, then tied to a tree and left for wolves. However, he is later rescued. There is mild fantasy violence in a battle sequence in which an angry mob clashes with magical characters, and in a fight scene that includes several kicks and punches. A character shoots another three times in the back, but there is no blood or injury detail on screen, and the victim survives.

Threat

Scenes of mild threat include two sequences in which characters are chased and attacked by wolves. In several brief scenes, people are frightened by another character's physical appearance and threatening behaviour. It is later revealed that this character is not dangerous.

There is a potentially upsetting scene in which a character experiences a flashback vision of her mother, who was killed by the plague. In the vision, the mother has some dark spots on her face, and is attended by a plague doctor wearing a beaked mask.

 KONG: SKULL ISLAND is a US fantasy adventure in which a team of scientists and soldiers explore an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

Threat

Multiple scenes depict characters being chased and attacked by giant fantastical creatures. In one such scene, a character is shown after having been impaled through the mouth by the leg of a giant insect, although there is no strong wound detail on screen. Another tense sequence occurs when characters pilot helicopters through a severe storm.

Violence

There is moderate fantasy violence in clashes between soldiers and giant creatures, and between the creatures themselves. A character's arm is torn off, but the image occurs in silhouette and there is no strong detail. One creature kills another by pulling out what appear to be internal organs from its mouth. Another character is attacked off screen, resulting in a splash of blood. A character swings a sword at another man who catches the blade in his hands, and we see a small amount of blood leak around his fingers.

Language

There is infrequent strong language and other milder swear words.

Other issues include a brief and slightly gory image of a human skull, and brief shots of people smoking in a club.

Violence

There are numerous action scenes in which the Lego characters fight with each another, delivering punches and kicks and being caught up in explosions and blasts from weapons. Neither the mild violence carried out by the Lego characters, or their 'injuries' are realistic. A comic tone runs throughout the fights and battles. There is also mild threat, which is also presented in a comic manner.

Theme

There is mild rude humour - for example when a villain rubs his bottom on the side of Batman's car, when Robin refers to 'Number One' and 'Number Two' as he says he has to go to the toilet, and some rude jokes about characters' names.

Language

There is also very mild bad language.
