So expect the dispute to be resolved soon, and probably on terms more favorable to China than to Hollywood. The dust-up is only the latest between Hollywood and China in recent months. In July, China abruptly pulled Despicable Me 2 from its release schedule, citing no reason. A few months ago, Quentin Tarantino agreed to trim some of the gore out of Django Unchained , but Chinese censors yanked the movie at the last minute anyway, until Tarantino agreed to more cuts. Where Does Django Unchained Rank on Our List of the Worst Movie Mistakes? In fact, it’s routine for Hollywood to alter the content of its overseas prints to placate China. Sometimes, it’s a question of outright censorship. For instance, all of Chow Yun-Fat’s scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End were cut because Chinese censors considered his pirate character an offensive ethnic caricature. Chinese censors also found offensive all the Chinese-American characters who were secretly alien invaders in Men in Black 3 , so they ended up on the cutting-room floor. The funniest example is the recent Titanic 3D , which cropped out Kate Winslet’s famous nude scene out of fear that the 3D effects might inspire moviegoers to reach out and try to cop a feel. Sometimes it’s adding scenes, as in Iron Man 3 , whose Chinese prints include spliced-in scenes of popular Chinese actor Wang Xueqi as a doctor who helps Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. He’s also shown drinking the Yili brand of milk, in a blatant scene of product placement . The scenes were so superfluous that even Chinese audiences practically hooted them off the screen.

ABOUT “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB” An imperfect man fights for survival during an uncertain time in America. Inspired by true events, Ron Woodroof’s story of strength is told in “Dallas Buyers Club,” directed by Jean-Marc Vallee from an original screenplay by Craig Borten & Melisa Wallack. Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life character, whose self-interest is galvanized into something much more. A son of Texas, Ron Woodroof is an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Yet he will not, and does not, accept a death sentence. His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments and medications in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico.
