Django Unchained - China Denies Censored Version

Reduced in Blood But Nudity Seems to be a Problem

Yes, it's time for the weekly news about China. You might have gotten a bit envious when word got out that China got exclusive versions of Looper and Iron Man 3. Also, classic Hollywood bows down before the economical power of the Chinese market and altered the plot of World War Z in order to keep the sympathies flowing. However, you are now allowed to smile about the fact that Chinese moviegoers will only see a censored Django Unchained - if they can see it at all.

As SCMP reports, no scenes were cut but the color of the blood was darkened and blood spatters were reduced. Tarantino calls this progress. But his tameness is understandable since it's his first film that is granted a theatrical release in China. So after the hurdle with the censor's office was taken after considerably subtle alterations and with the fact in mind that Django Unchained is one of the few foreign productions that are allowed to be screened per year in China, it all looked like a happy end.

Eventually, that didn't come true. The Chinese found a new aspect that they found offensive: nudity. That is the alleged reason why Django Unchained cannot be seen in cinemas. Even though there are negotiations behind closed curtains it is far from certain that they are going to be successful.
