The shares of box office by film classification vary from year to year as demonstrated in Figure 4.5. However, the box office ranking of the classifications has remained fairly constant over time, the top earner being ‘12A’, with ‘U’ and ‘18’ typically being the lowest earners. The exceptions are 2011 and 2013 when ‘PG’ films earned less than ‘U’ films. Apart from these two years, ‘PG’ and ‘15’ films have exchanged second and third places over the period. In 2013 the box office share of the ‘12A’ classification decreased for the first time since 2010, but over the time shown in the graph it has had an increasing trend in box office share. In 2013, 46% of the total box office was generated by ‘12A’ classified films. 44 – BFI Statistical Yearbook 2014
