Give us back our Avatar!


Since the announcement that Avatar was being yanked from 2D screens across the country, there have been outcries across  Chinese internet from angry fans – many of which believe that it was rather to promote the new release of Chow-Yun Fat’s latest movie, ‘Conficius’, which unlike Avatar, is most definitely patriotic.

It’s not like it’s a real issue however, as already there would be millions of pirated copies of Avatar on the streets of China. Take your local Blockbuster store; full of dvds – take away those dvd’s and replace them all with pirated copies, and you’ll have the kind of stores that you can find in practically every location. It’s actually quite amazing the level of work that goes into creating the packaging for these pirate copies – particularly when you consider how cheap they are to purchase.
