The Amazing Spider-Man contains 'moderate violence and injury detail'.
What are the most intriguing flick poster disclaimers you have seen?
Last night's football featured a lot of superheroes, especially in the ad breaks.
There was the latest spot for The Dark Knight Rises; the new teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man.
I haven't seen Spidey yet, but I'm even keener to now, after reading the trailer-end disclaimer: "Contains moderate violence and injury detail".
That's a new one on me.
I'm familiar with mild peril, I'm au fait with adult situations, and I'm all for strong language in a speech therapy context.
But injury detail? A Google suggests we've had more inflicted upon us than I realised.
The Iron Lady, for instance, "contains real images of moderate violence, injury detail and brief nudity" which makes me think I need to re-see it smartish.
Leo Benedictus investigated this fully six years ago, grappling with the "comic wrestling violence" in Nacho Libre and the "frequent jousting" of A Knight's Tale.
And Kira Cochrane recently went down to the British Board of Film Classification HQ – next month we'll have a full report of her findings.
But your thoughts, please, on injury detail or any new qualifications we've missed recently.
And which ones need inventing … ?
