django china cancelled

China’s debut of “Django Unchained” was suddenly cancelled Thursday, with some suspecting censorship as the reason.

“After watching it for about a minute, it stopped!” said Xue Yi Dao, a microblogger who was watching the premiere. “Staff then came in and said SARFT (State Administration Of Radio, Film And Television) had called to say it had to be delayed!! Can someone tell me what’s happening!!”

Other bloggers have speculated the film could’ve been pulled due to a scene where star Jamie Foxx (pictured left) is hung from rafters while only wearing a small cloth. Director Quentin Tarantino is known for violence and sexual imagery in his films.
But an official at one theater in Shanghai cited technical challenges as the reason. “We got the notice from our headquarters around 10:00 a.m. this morning but it was too late to cancel two viewings,” the official said, according to the Daily News.

“We were only told that it was due to some technology problems and were told to cancel it,” the official added. “They didn’t tell us when the film would be shown again.”

The country’s box office for American films grew by 36 percent last year, surpassing Japan, according to the Motion Picture Association Of America.

China’s government censors all films before release, filtering out any scenes with nudity, heavy political topics and extreme violence. In 2004, Chinese movie “Dahongmidian” was cancelled at the last minute because it had “erotic” scenes that “made improper propaganda without approval,” media sources claimed.
