Chinese Moviegoers Turn To Piracy After 'Django' Ban

Story :

News of Django Unchained’s enforced disappearance from mainland Chinese cinemas has angered local filmgoers, with some explicitly saying they will now watch the film on pirated discs or as illegal downloads rather than waiting for the film to return to theaters.

Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-winning Western has already reportedly been available in pirated disc shops as well as online, but up until yesterday bloggers had been expressing their desire to experience the film in a cinema for the first time. None of Tarantino’s previous films have been released in China, including Kill Bill, which was actually partly shot in Beijing.

With the film pulled from cinemas, bloggers have now said they will watch the film at home illegally. “Chinese film buffs are the most dismayed and helpless of all,” said a blogger who goes by the handle of "cfcu." “Even when we are watching dated movies we had our screenings stopped. Luckily, we still have pirated discs!”
