For no apparent reason, Chinese authorities have taken a decision to pull Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” out of the cinemas. As a result, movie enthusiasts had no other option than to take the alternative and watch the masterpiece from illegal sources.
Once moviegoers discovered that the original version of the Oscar-winning picture was banned from the cinemas, they got very upset and complained that Chinese film buffs were the most dismayed and helpless of all. They pointed out that even when they were watching dated movies they had their screenings stopped. Fortunately, they still have another option – pirated discs.
Internet users admit that they originally planned to see Django Unchained in theaters, but the shameless State Administration of Radio, Film and Television suddenly stopped the movie. After waiting for so many days they had nothing to do but download the HD version of the movie and watch it at home.
By the way, the movie’s opening day in China was totally ruined – just a minute after the screenings started, the staff there had to stop the film by order of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television. The movie studio regrets that the film has been removed from Chinese theaters and is currently working with the local government to find out whether Django Unchained can be rescheduled.
In response, Sony China refused to comment on the decision, with Chinese authorities saying that “Django Unchained” was censored because of “technical reasons”. In the meanwhile, the bigger picture highlighted some very interesting political mishaps, with supporters of the Conservative Party saying that the pulling of the film has brought much more harm to China and its politics than just cutting out “harmful scenes”.
At the moment, there’s a lack of people within the establishment able to report to the powers that be about the real situation so as to avoid the application of wrong policies, and the establishment fails to encourage people to do so.
The industry experts point out that the need for a clear, age-based classification system has been repeatedly emphasized by both mainstream and indie movie makers and producers. However, thus far the Chinese authorities are still to act on the imperative change, if ever. Today the local rating system only works on a two-lane freeway: either they ban a film or release it for audiences of all ages.

|Some shitty writing going on here.|
|Is it because the movie features time-travel?|
|Django Unchained was censored because of shitical reason's.Or more to the point it's a piece of sh-t.And if it won an Oscar|
that's really sh-ty on the part of whorelywood damf's.
|Sounds like they didn't want to show their people a Black man being as powerful as the Character of Django was to me!|

|movie sucked anyway, the chinese should thank the government in this case.|
|I thought it was ok, it defintely didnt suck IMO, but i guess we all have our own Opinons......thnx for the great read as always|
|they had problems subtitling it and they couldn't get the cinavia device to work so that the people could record the movie and make a small profit...damn communism|
|Don't they know banning something just makes it all that more desirable? I bet people in China that hadn't even planned on seeing the film will probably want to watch it now. I'm assuming it was probably banned for all the racial stuff in the film, but unfortunately thats how it was back in those days, you can't sugar coat it. If you cant deal with that, then don't watch the film, no need to ban it. People are just going to DL anyways|

|Great comment @ic3m413, I think all the Kracker KKK should come out, more often, and spill more beans !....Hey, just hit the Road, Jackie Chan...and see it in Taiwan or Hong Kong...Or Tibet...Sorry forgot, no theater's there!!!|
|DJANGO IS A GREAT MOVIE, FOR ME I THINK IT HIGHLIGHTS A MINORITY IDEA OF PUTTING A GLORIOUS BASTERD'S TYPE TO WHAT WAS BEING DONE TO BLACK PEOPLE BACK THEN. WE MUST REMEMBER THAT MOVIES ARE PEOPLE'S OPINIONS, IDEAS AND EXPRESSIONS.|
PEACE IN PEACE OUT!!!!!
|I wanted to read this article but barely understand it, parts are honestly incomprehensible.|
And who/what is "the Conservative Party"? We're talking about China here, they *only* have the Communist Party...
I'm guessing this is the result of a bad computer translation from another language, can we have the source please?
|@hammy1309..what are you talking about ...really?|

|Django Unchained a real master piece...shitty China|
|Django Unchained, the D's silent hillbilly. HEh! Was better, WAY better than the man with the Iron Fists. Which I could see being banned in Asia cause that was a travesty to any Asian culture.||
