Christopher Nolan's latest movie Tenet has officially been given a rating in the UK, as the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) has revealed a few, minuscule changes have been made to the film over here.

The BBFC has given the film a 12A rating, meaning that anyone who is accompanied by an adult can go and experience getting their brain frazzled.

To achieve that rating, one scene has had a few edits made, but nothing that looks like it will be a big deal. In fact, comparing the UK length to the previously reported one, it looks like we've only lost a total of nine seconds.

"During post-production," the BBFC's description reads, "the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission.

"This film was originally seen for advice. The company was advised it was likely to be classified 15 uncut but that their preferred 12A classification could be obtained by making small changes to one scene to remove shots of a man kicking a woman.

"When the film was submitted for formal classification, the shots in question had been removed and the film was classified 12A."

The film was recently given yet another release date after being delayed indefinitely, with Warner Bros deciding to alter its distribution plans.

Tenet is now set to arrive in UK and international cinemas on August 26, followed by select US cities on September 2.
