    DISNEY permitted Chinese govt censors on set of 'IRON MAN 3' to monitor filming...

    In the past, Hollywood executives have complained that China’s film officials — part of the powerful State Administration of Radio, Film and Television — impose standards erratically, and sometimes without explanation.


    “The Karate Kid” and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor,” both of which were shot in China, for instance, encountered objections after their scripts had already been approved by censors.


    Still, American moviemakers have increasingly been willing to bend over backward in their efforts to meet Chinese standards, even allowing government officials onto movie sets to monitor the filming, as was the case with Disney and Marvel’s “Iron Man 3.”


    China does not have a movie ratings system like those in the United States or Europe that would give viewers a chance to judge whether a film is too violent for children or teenagers. It relies instead on the brute force of censorship: movies and television shows either have scenes excised or are banned entirely.
