China won't allow more than 20 foreign films because of protectionism and their preference for "educational" domestic product. They limited screens for "Avatar" and touted a biography of Confucious which ended up being trounced in the box office.

"has already cleared Chinese censors"

Must be nothing in the movie criticizing the Chinese government, or simply irking the censors like the Singaporean pirate in Pirates of the Caribbean 3 which got banned.

Good Idea and hope more will follow - great life long friendships are created with interaction between people and governments

Uh oh .... does this mean that all future films will be scripted, shot and edited with "Can I sell this in China ?" first and foremost in everyones minds ? If so, many bold and daring themes will be watered-down into the tasteless brew preferred by the PRCs government.

Good. More films and audio visual materials, should be exchanged by China and other nations via cinema,internet or CDs.

It is good business, in millions of USDollars/Yuans for all,the global movie business.

Maybe the movie can plant the idea in the Chinese moviegoers' minds that their commie gov't sucks and needs a change...

Aha! So in today's market, if you don't get one of these lucrative China spots, there's absolutely no way you will be able to break box office records.

box office records, good business, bootlegs. screw all that! some people still give a monkeys about art. the digital/internet age helped artists no doubt. the double edge is it also helped marginalise them and totally screw them over. DIY is the only way now as it was in the 80s, cut out the middleman. xerox and fly poster
