(ANI): James Cameron's Avatar may soon be stopped from screening in
China, as the authorities apparently feel the movie is subversive.
Seemingly, the state-run China Film Group has demanded cinemas
across the country to stop showing the 2-D version of Avatar from
January 23 on orders from Beijing's propaganda chiefs. The
Government reportedly is wary the citizens of the country may find
similarity with Avatar's Na'vi people, who fight to save their
planet from humans.
The link may exist at the level of residents who get in the way
of property developers. Hong Kong's Apple Daily said: "Reportedly,
the authorities have two reasons for this check on Avatar: first,
it has taken in too much money and has seized market share from
domestic films, and second, it may lead audiences to think about
forced removal, and may possibly incite violence."
