James Bond - Skyfall Censored in China
Three months after it officially started in most countries in the world, the latest James Bond installment Skyfall, which partly takes part in China, starts in Chinese cinemas. The country becomes a more and more important territory for films but has still to struggle with the federal censorship. As the BBC reports, Skyfall had to be censored there.
The murder of a security guard in Shanghai was cut out and remarks by the villain Silva regarding torture in China was removed from the subtitles. Also, when Bond looks at Sévérine's tattoo, the info is omitted that she got it from a brothel in Macao.
The censored version is the only one playing in Chinese cinemas. However, illegal copies of the film are also circulating and contain the movie without these alterations.
