Orlando Bloom movie bosses win ratings appeal

Producers of Orlando Bloom's new film The Good Doctor are celebrating after winning their ratings battle for the movie.

Officials at the Classification and Rating Board originally gave the psychological thriller an R-rating, citing "some crude sexual references".

Co-producer Jonathan King and screenwriter Julia Lebedev took their case to the appeals board in a bid to have The Good Doctor classified as a PG-13 - and they've succeeded in their battle, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new rating means all teenagers will be able to see the movie unaccompanied - an R rating requires under-17s to attend showings with a parent or adult guardian.
