In this lesson we had to research how the age limit on films effect who watch them and how they are viewed.
15+ and 18+ films have that age limit because it has strong sexual content, gore, explicit language which are usually related to horror/thriller.
animation films which are "u" rated or films that are 12+ will get viewed a lot more because it is open to a wider rage of audience. films that are open to a wider range of audience have more advantage, such as animations.
we also done research on statistics of films watched.
