Deadpool Banned in China - Too Rude, Too Nude
China has become the 2nd biggest market for theatrical films and guarantees a big revenue for US studios that find a more and more declining box office situation in the Western territories. The upcoming comic film Deadpool will not have that treatment, however, because the "R"-rated film features too much violence, sex and bad language for the Chinese State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.
Since China has no rating system, this institution decides whether or not a film is allowed entrance into Chinese theaters. That can also happen when a studio is willing to apply censorship but that is no option for Deadpool. The board says that the film would have to be cut up so badly that the story would be incoherent for Chinese cinemagoers.
