Because of Bruce Lee scene? China stops launch of Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”

Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time” should be launched in China, the second largest cinema market in the world. But now China has canceled the launch indefinitely. Reason could be the Bruce Lee scene …

Quentin Tarantino is expected to occur reasonably known this whole number: His commercially successful film “Django Unchained” should also start in China, as his current hit “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”, but was on the opening day but then from the movie theaters of North America second largest cinema market in the world banned.

The theatrical release of the 60-Hollywood satire “Once Upon A Time” has been postponed indefinitely now about a week before angepeiltem China realease (25 October 2019), as the industry magazine Variety, Hollywood Reporter and Deadline reported, citing sources.

It looks so out afterwards that China launched has “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” done effectively. have foreign films it there anyway difficult because it also gives a rate at which their number is limited – and the other chosen by a censorship board, which films are allowed to run and which not.

In addition to scenes of violence there, the content is relevant. No official reason is known for “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood”. However, Quentin Tarantino could his portrayal of martial arts legend Bruce Lee (in the film: Mike Moh) have fallen to his feet.

China upset about Bruce Lee?

Bruce Lee, who had a Chinese father and a German-Chinese mother, comes in “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” very arrogant over when he (Brad Pitt) to each device on the set with stuntman Cliff Booth – and run by Booth, who as cool guy is staged successfully and unceremoniously thrown against a car door. This allows the legitimate impression that Booth would have won this after two of three rounds interrupted clash of egos.

This already controversial depiction of Bruce Lee is said to have daughter Shannon Lee so disturbed that they have therefore demanded changes in the Chinese film authority.

The reports included the Hollywood Reporter, referring to sources that have to do with the Chinese film authority and the Chinese “Once Opon A Time” -Mitproduzenten Bona Film Group. Shannon Lee appeared before public angered by Quentin Tarantino’s dealing with her father.

Tarantino wants no changes

The Hollywood Reporter reported in another article, Quentin Tarantino wants to make any new cut of “Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood,” only in order to get through the movies front Chinese censorship. Officially, even this information is not, because neither the director nor the studio Sony have so far spoken publicly to the point.

But Tarantino described by a source “take it or leave” attitude sounds plausible, the filmmaker is not known as a man of compromise. Quite different is the way ran for example, “Bohemian Rhapsody” from the house of Fox: In the Chinese version of the Queen biopics all references have been removed to sexual orientation Freddie Mercury.

After all about money Quentin Tarantino probably needs to worry: Yes, US blockbusters such as “Bumblebee” and “Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw” were saved by their big business shares from China. But with 377.7 million dollars box office receipts is “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood” eh already a success and for “Django” anyway Tarantino’s second most successful film. It is also very questionable whether would have been successful, “Once Upon A Time” in China – after all, it is about a quintessentially American story from the sixties.
