How China is Changing Hollywood, Washington Free Beacon, Think Progress and LA Times

-At least there's bi-partisan outrage over this! 

Hollywood film executives are kowtowing to the Chinese Communist government by producing movies that feature pro-regime propaganda in return for access to the lucrative foreign market, the L.A. Times reports.

The recent action film Battleship, for instance, intentionally featured “Chinese do-gooders,” while another major Hollywood film inserted crafty “Chinese hydroelectric engineers” into the picture "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" (see below)...


You can't actually see Chinese in the movie but there is a dam and I'm sure it's not a selling point in the trailer.

Characters are supposed to speak Mandarin rather than Cantonese, because the Chinese government is trying to make Mandarin the uniform national tongue. Studios aren’t supposed to shoot in cities and give revenue to areas that have pockets of dissidents. They’re not supposed to promote obscenity, gambling, violence, supernaturalism, horrors, ghosts, demons, general supernaturalism, or disturbances of social order, all of which are pretty fantastic story drivers. That’s a lot of creative integrity to hand over. At some point, big talents are going to get frustrated by these restrictions. Even from a business perspective, there’s got to be a point at which it becomes difficult to satisfy both American audiences and Chinese censors. And while the Chinese government and Hollywood studios may believe that Chinese audiences will pay to see anything as long as it’s on a big screen, that is not necessarily a condition that will last forever.


Before "Men in Black 3" was released in China, Chinese censors cut out 13 minutes of the Hollywood blockbuster.

Three scenes apparently offended the Chinese regime. The first scene shows an extraterrestrial alien disguised as a Chinese restaurant owner. The second scene shows a Chinese cashier girl attacking Will Smith's character with her alien elastic green tongue. And the third scene shows Will Smith's character erasing the memory of Chinese bystanders. China's Southern Daily newspaper commented that it could be interpreted as a hint at the regime's "use of internet censorship to maintain social stability."

"In fact, references to the Middle Kingdom are popping up with remarkable frequency in movies these days. Some are conspicuously flattering or gratuitous additions designed to satisfy Chinese business partners and court audiences in the largest moviegoing market outside the U.S. Others, filmmakers say, are simply organic reflections of the fact that China is a rising political, economic and cultural power.

Meanwhile, Chinese bad guys are vanishing — literally. Western studios are increasingly inclined to excise potentially negative references to China in the hope that the films can pass muster with Chinese censors and land one of several dozen coveted annual revenue-sharing import quota slots in Chinese cinemas."
