Bumped back up to a 15 certificate? Am I mistaken in thinking this had been knocked down to a 12 cert?

Bumped back up to a 15 certificate? Am I mistaken in thinking this had been knocked down to a 12 cert?
No, you are not mistaken:

As you say, it was originally given a 15 certificate, but this was knocked down last year. Specifically, the standard movie AND 4K versions for home video release were classified by the bbfc as 12A on 5th October 2018.

I can't see anything about any extras being rated as 15, apart from the original trailer, though, which, if included, could drive the overall rating of the package, I guess. I know some releases have had a higher rating than the feature due to the extras being rated higher e.g. some of the commentaries on the recent Doctor Who blu-ray releases have pushed the ratings up to 12 on what would otherwise be PG rated material.

So...the first real "exclusive" steelbook related item for RC subscribers is a slipcase that costs an extra £4? (Unless I missed a previous even more exciting offer?) :LOL:
Plus that art...:bag:

Why are they ruining these films. Just got a email from WB store showing the standard 4K editions for this, goonies and both Sherlock Holmes films. Art is just so much better

I don’t know what’s worse, the Sherlock Holmes steelbooks coming soon with that terrible square art and a number system on the back for 2 poxy films, this rubbish or the plain bland goonies steel. All of them are peak awful

the standard slip art for Sherlock Holmes would work well on a steelbook too

This is a shrewd marketing ploy from Zavvi in a way to add a slipcase edition and charge for it. Hats off. I like this very much. Kinda grows on you the more you look at it.

Quite like the slip, the steel is a bit meh, but not horrible. The 4K normal artwork is better (as it often is imo). Still may pick it up.
