    Chow Yun-cut: China Trims POTC 3 for Theatrical Release

    Variety reports that Chinese censors have cut more than half of the scenes featuring Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-fat in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. The third installment of the pirate blockbuster will premiere in China on Tuesday.

    China Film originally denied making any cuts, then refused to comment when Beijing News reported that scenes of excessive violence had been trimmed.

    The second movie of the trilogy, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest had previously been banned in China for its depiction of cannibalism and ghosts.

    This is very surprising considering the huge amount of very graphic violence and ghosts that I've seen in several China-made movies...

    Perhaps GOOGLE will strike another deal with China and offer a new service that allows Chinese citizens to watch many more censured films.

    I did find some of the violence in 3 excessive (girl getting shot in the head) but not so much that half of Sao Feng's scenes would need to be cut.

    I'm guessing they're more offended by a Chinese man being portrayed as a bad guy.

    Stealing Technology - good

    Ghost and Cannibals - Bad


    Seems like Chinese logic.

    Could be. I guess him being Lord of Singapore and a pirate wasn't enough.

    So are they just censoring and cutting the official copies, or are they censoring and cutting the thousands of black market Pirate's movies too?

    Oh those silly Chinese! I think I will stop eating their food because it contains MSG and stop buying their Made In China items because they are cheaply constructed!

















































    Sounds silly....don't it!
