China Cuts 40 Minutes From "Cloud Atlas"

Posted: January 25th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
China Cuts 40 Minutes From "Cloud Atlas"Submit Comment
"Cloud Atlas" contains six different stories that span over 400 years. This is why the film is 172 minutes long. Now comes word that China will cut a whopping 40 minutes out of the movie in preparation of its release in the country. One of the directors, Lana Wachowski, is not happy with the move. "It sucks," she said, adding: "But I believe you can watch the full version online."

China's sensors deleted sequences that were primarily comprised of love scenes, gore and nudity. Homosexual scenes between actors Ben Whishaw and James D'Arcy were also cut from the film due to a strict ban on homosexual content.

This news comes after China cut several scenes out of "Skyfall," including one in which a hitman kills a Chinese security guard. Another is a scene depicting prostitution in Macau, and another is a scene where it's mentioned that Chinese security agents participated in torture.

Cut the other two and a half hours and you save audiences from a visually stunning piece of sh*t.

You would think Lana would be more accepting of lopping things off.

Why are they worried about gaysian sex scenes?
Even gaysian guys dont like other gaysian guys.....
Ya know, cuz of the wang issue.

Andy Wachowski needs to cut off Lana and do a film on his own. Although they probably balance each other out. He's left brain, and she's right brain. Andy by himself would probably make a movie filled with nothing but fart jokes, titties, and 'splosions. Like I said, he needs to make a film on his own.

Word on the street is that Warner Bros. will cut his c*ck off too if Cloud Atlas bombed and the only way to avoid this is by making The Matrix 4 & 5. When Keanu caught wind of this he said "whoah" whilst putting the kids in the proverbial pool.

Looks like the 2 actors in the photo aren't taking this news very well.

Isn't this the same country that ran over its own citizens with tanks on national television some 23 years ago?

Man. Loosen up China.
