    They wouldn't even need to wait to see the movie before abandoning it in a dumpster.

    Their reasoning is stretching things a bit.

    "No market because most people in China haven't seen the original two. " Yeah, you don't have to have any actual knowledge of the first two to understand this one. There are ghosts, there are people who catch ghosts. Fin.

    ...they said i'd live forever, but they lied...it's been much longer...

    You have to remember, they wouldn't even let Warcraft use the name "Deathwing"

    And made them use "Fadewing"

    They take death very seriously.

    They're censoring the hell out of all the death in RE: Zero also.

    Oh well. At least it will be fun to see it bomb here.

    Conservative countries don't really like movies where women step out of traditional roles. China is a very, very conservative country which still practices arranged marriages and dowries. They're also the market Hollywood wants to tap most. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise.

    There was someone talking on NPR last night about the topic actually. They pointed out that women in movies are portrayed as weaker characters now than they ever had been. They said a lot of it is due to them wanting to appeal to more traditional markets in Asia and the Mideast.
