Mile 22 confirmed for an 18-certificate by BBFC

Mile 22
Mile 22 has been confirmed as an 18-certificate today on the BBFC’s website.

The full breakdown of the ins and outs aren’t known just yet, but it’s rare that a Hollywood studio would pass a film as an 18 these days, so kudos to STX International for not going with the easy option.

The film runs for 94 minutes and so far is just listed as containing “strong bloody violence” but no detailed info on the decision is yet available.

BBFC Summary: “Mile 22 is a US action thriller in which a military unit has a few hours to transport a mysterious informant to refuge 22 miles from the US embassy.”

Mile 22 was due out last month, but has now been put back to September 19th, so not long to go.

Mile 22 Previously on DVDfever:

June 16th:

Mile 22 centres around an elite American intelligence officer – played by The Raid‘s Iko Uwais, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, who tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.

And now, the Red Band Trailer has been released, which usually means lots of fruity language!

This is another collaboration of Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, with additional occasional collaboration from John Malkovich, who all brought us the incredible Deepwater Horizon, and the first two also brought us Lone Survivor and the superb Patriots Day.

So, I’m definitely in.

Mile 22 is released in the UK on August 10th.

Director: Peter Berg
Writers: Lea Carpenter, Graham Roland
Also stars: Lauren Cohan, Ronda Rousey, Terry Kinney, Sala Baker, Poorna Jagannathan, Alexandra Vino, Lauren Mary Kim, Nikolai Nikolaeff, Raven Wynn
