Bumblebee is a 2018 USA action Sci-Fi adventure by Travis Knight.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Justin Theroux and Angela Bassett. BBFC link IMDb

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

The film was originally passed 12A uncut for moderate fantasy violence for UK cinema release.

However the distributors preferred a cut PG version and the film was resubmitted shorn by about 6 secnds. The BBFC duly passed the film PG for moderate fantasy violence, mild sex references, injury detail, language.

In the US the film was Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action violence.

Update: Australia too

16th December 2018. See article from refused-classification.com

With echoes of the UK situation the Australian distributors of BumbleBee submitted the film uncut to the film censor and received an uncut M rating for moderate impact violence, mild impact themes, language Very mild drug use, sex. The M rating is an advisory 15 that would be labelled PG-15 in the US. It is the usual rating for films rated PG-13 in the US and 12A in the UK.

Like Britain the distributors preferred a local PG and resubmitted a cut version, presumably the same as the cut UK PG rated version . However it didn't cut any ice with the censor and was again M rated.

The distributors are now appealing the decision with the Review Board hoping to achieve the desired PG.

Shopping: Texas Adios...

1966 Italy / Spain action western by Ferdinando Baldi, once cut by the BBFC, just released on UK Blu-ray


Link Here 16th December 2018
Texas Adios is a 1966 Italy / Spain action western by Ferdinando Baldi.
Starring Franco Nero, Alberto Dell'Acqua and Elisa Montés. BBFC link IMDb
BBFC cuts were required for an 'AA' rated cinema release in 1970. Uncut and 12 rated since 2004 DVD. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.
UK: Previously passed 12 uncut for moderate violence:
  • 2018 Arrow Video (RB) Blu-ray at UK Amazon released on 10th December 2018

Reviews

  • See review from thedigitalfix.com : " Nero has never been the greatest actor, though he does have considerable presence. That charisma is certainly stretched in Texas, Adios , as he's lumbered with some lousy dialogue "
  • See review from frontrowreviews.co.uk : " It is far less challenging, unconventional and blood soaked than Django. It is however still dust covered and sweat stained enough to feel a part of the genres best "

Promotional Material

Following on from the enormous success of his breakthrough film Django, Franco Nero returned to the Wild West (Almería, Spain) to star in the same year s Texas Adios, which was released as Django 2 in some countries.

Here he plays tough gunslinger Burt Sullivan, a sheriff who, along with his younger brother (Alberto Dell'Acqua, Endgame), journeys to Mexico to hunt down the sadistic bandit Cisco Delgado and avenge his father s murder. When Burt and his brother fall in with a group of Mexican revolutionaries, the stage is set for a violent climatic confrontation...

Directed by veteran helmsman Ferdinado Baldi, best known for the cult Western Blindman (starring Beatles tub-thumper Ringo Starr) and the 3D extravaganza Comin' at Ya!, Texas Adios is a lesser-known Spaghetti Western gem, which boasts rapid-fire action scenes, stunning locations and stylish cinematography courtesy of Enzo Barboni (Django, Nightmare Castle). The film is presented here in an exclusive new restoration, with a wealth of extras which allow this film to be enjoyed as never before.

    Shopping: The Mighty Peking Man...

    1977 Hong Kong action Sci-Fi horror by Meng Hua Ho just released on UK Blu-ray


    Link Here 16th December 2018
    The Mighty Peking Man is a 1977 Hong Kong action Sci-Fi horror by Meng Hua Ho (as Homer Gaugh).
    Starring Evelyne Kraft, Danny Lee and Feng Ku. BBFC link IMDb
    Original European version with title Colossus of Congo has an alternate ending to the Hong Kong version.
    UK: Passed 15 uncut for sexual threat, moderate violence:

    Promotional Material

    The success of the Japanese GODZILLA movies led to all kinds of strange cash-in capers - including the legendarily bizarre North Korean opus PULGASARI (1985). However, it was with THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN in 1977 that the Shaw Brothers studio cast their own attempt at a mega-sized monster movie and, for many, this is the one that even outdoes the Tokyo originators for sheer sublime cinematic genius. Featuring the iconic Danny Lee (THE KILLER/ THE UNTOLD STORY/ CITY ON FIRE) as an explorer in the Himalayas who gets caught up with a ravishing jungle Jane (played by the delicious Evelyne Kraft), and discovers a huge King Kong-inspired ape hiding in the forest, THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN is a creature feature that is packed full of sex appeal, city-smashing theatrics and monstrous moments. Acclaimed by Quentin Tarantino, who considers it a personal favourite, and highlighting assured direction from the great Ho Meng Hua (whose genre career also spans such sleazy classics as BLACK MAGIC and THE OILY MANIAC), MIGHTY PEKING MAN sets a gold standard in Hong Kong grindhouse glory and is finally back on British shelves, ready to pummel its way into the hearts of a new generation!

    Extras:
    • "RESTORED UNCUT HD TRANSFER in Original 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio
    • Uncompressed English & Mandarin Audio
    • English Subtitles
    • Reverse Sleeve featuring Original Hong Kong Poster Art
    • Audio Commentary with Bey Logan"
