    why? cause of several reasons,
    1st the chinese gvt don t want that chinese people spend to much money for a US production
    2nd as HanHan said the movie is talking about the expropriation, a sensible subject in china... " for foreign country; expropriation is something unbelievable, it s something who can only happen in an another planet or in china"
    3rd they stop Avatar to put confucius under the spotlight... Confusius who s a really nationalist production...

    what do u think about?

    Pierre, you are a bit paranoid:P

    The 2D and 3D versions of Avatar will be removed maybe after another one or two weeks because we need to see other new movies. (not the reasons you mentioned)
  • Peter S 李贝勒
    it s really not cause of we need to see new movie cause they change the schedule... i m not paranoid, they should keep the movie till the 26 february, then suddenly it becomes the 23 january. The same days than confusius exit. i cannot believe that it happens because of destiny. Why the GVT send a note to all the cinema? why remove movie who s really popular? can u tell me why? economical and political reason...

    "they should keep the movie till the 26 february", wow, I never heard any film could be showed in Chinese cinemas for almost two months.

    And most big cinemas have more than five screens, which means audiences could watch Confusius and Avatar at the same time.

    Look, Pierre, no one wants to see the 2D version. We want to see the 3D version, that is the point of the film's success.

    HanHan is just one blogger, he doesn't speak for China when he makes his theories. It's an interesting theory but there's absolutely no that Avatar is being perceived in China as an allegory about displacement and corrupt property developers, nor that the government thinks similarly.

    It just makes good business sense for the government to promote a domestic film for Spring Festival, however dull it allegedly is. Plus they're control freaks who don't like to lose face by having Confucius beaten by Hollywood over New year but hey-ho

    People will still be able to see the 3D version and buy the DVD anyway.

    This really is an instance of the media spinning against the Chinese government, with very little factual basis

    Ditto that, Mr. Dice. Everything needn't contain overt political wrangling.

    In a Norwegian newspaper they claimed that the reason of Avatars removal was that the deporting of the aliens in this movie can be compared to how the Chinese government move people in order to construct new buildings.

    Personally I think that's just bullshit, and it's all a domino effect of the Google case as it's hot news that people do read. The newspaper didn't mention that it's only the 2D cinema's who stops showing the movie at all.

    They are probably not removing Avatar 2D for any other reason except that the Theaters are finding that 3D is moving more tickets and of course they should have Confucious in time for the holiday right? Don't you think Confucious will sell massive amounts of tickets? I would see that film even if I was in the U.S.! I cannot wait! However, it is sad how newspapers develop disrespectful theories about these types of things without knowing the whole story. It just makes good sense to stop showing 2D Avatar and make room for Confucious. Why not? Do you think a foreign film would stand a chance in the U.S. against the release of a patriotic war film. How about in Europe in regard to the release of a Guy Richie film? Whatever the reason is it is their business to do whatever they want with the theater because the last time I checked we live in Beijing. This is an internal issue.

    They will let the 3D versions, but there s only 500 3D rooms all over china. peanuts.

    @ 故园无此声
    i mistake it s not the 26 but the 28 february, i double check http://www.aujourdhuilachine.com/actualites-chine-avatar-vs-confucius-le-choc-des-titans-n-aura-pas-lieu-en-chine-13380.asp?1=1
    so, it s not me who says it. it s just a fact and the truth my sweet...

    @ 叮噹
    i love ur sentence, "haven't they taken enough RMB already" really nationalist words, and "let's give the local movies a fair go" is protectionism
    If u were french in 1942, i m sure that u had poster of Laval next to Ur bed.

    it s 'Confucius', not 'Confucious'

    to finish, if people like a movie, Avatar, Conficius or the Hand of my sister, just let them go to see, what they want...
