Tarantino’s “Django” Pulled In China For Alleged Nudity Worries

Chinese cinemas cancelled all screenings of Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” just as it was released, local media said, with one viewer claiming that their showing stopped after just one minute.

“‘Django Unchained’, because of technical reasons, has been stopped from being shown nationwide for the time being,” the popular web portal Sina reported, citing a notice distributed to cinema companies. It quoted unnamed industry insiders as saying that nudity prompted the sudden censorship and said it was not clear when the film would return to screens.
