China censors trim At World's End
"Censors in China have cut parts of the movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' to make it suitable for audiences in the country.
Reports published in the local media say that several scenes in the film have been cut, including the one wherein Hong Kong actor Chow Yun-fat, who portrays Singapore pirate Captain Sao Feng, recites a poem in Cantonese.
While giving an interview to Variety magazine, a Disney spokesman confirmed that the audiences would see a Chinese version of the film. He though revealed that the film was censored, did not elaborate.
The trimming of the flick comes in the backdrop of criticisms of Chow's character, who is bald, has long nails, and is dressed in Qing dynasty style.
Distributor 'China Film Group' had initially denied that any cuts had been made in the movie, but later on, it declined to comment when approached by the magazine.
The report also suggests that the audiences may find understanding the film difficult as a result of the cuts.
'The sudden debut of the captain confused the audience at the Beijing screening,' the BBC quoted the report as stating.
Earlier, the Chinese film bureau had banned the previous instalment in the film franchise 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest', as it contained scenes of cannibalism and ghosts.
Officials at the Film Bureau of the State Administration of Film, Radio and Television were unavailable for comment."
