China’s movie censor has decided not to approve The Departed for domestic release in China “due to the film’s brief mention of a Chinese plan to buy military equipment,” according to Reuters. “There is no chance The Departed will be shown in mainland cinemas because the U.S. side declined to change a plot line describing how Beijing wanted to buy advanced military computer hardware,” a Chinese government source told Reuters. “That part of the plot is definitely unnecessary. The [Chinese] regulators just cannot understand why the movie wanted to involve China. They can talk about Iran or Iraq or whatever, but there’s no reason to get China in.” Idiots.
