Reboot of “Ghostbusters” will not show in China
Referred to two versions of why the film was denied rolling identity.
Reboot of “Ghostbusters” will not work in the Chinese car. Some sources report that Sony was unable to obtain permission from local authorities.
Chinese censors wary of films that are cults or superstitions.” The same applies to paintings in which there are ghosts and supernatural creatures shown in “semi-realistic manner”. For example, a similar problem was faced in 2006, the creators of the film “pirates of the Caribbean: dead man’s Chest”, which was a place of cannibals and the walking dead.
It is worth noting that the authors of the restart was ready for such. Back in the spring of Chinese film title dropped the word “Ghost”, though it appears in the titles of the original paintings (which, by the way, also did not go there in a rental).
Some sources claim that the main reason for the denial was not a ban by censors.
“The picture will not be released in the Chinese car, because the audience is not particularly interested in it, — said the source. — Most of the audience had not seen the first two parts, so in the new film, few prospects”.
We will remind, in the Russian hire “Ghost Hunters” will be released on July 28.
