New James Bond movie cleared to show in China

Chinese censors have cleared the latest James Bond film "Casino Royale" to be shown in the country without asking for any changes, a movie executive said Friday.

The movie is reportedly the first Bond movie to screen in mainland China.

"The film has been approved and no cuts or changes have been requested," Li Chow, general manager at Columbia TriStar Film Distributors International and Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

"Casino Royale," starring Daniel Craig, is a Columbia Pictures movie.

Li said the movie will open in China Jan. 30, more than two months after its U.S. release Friday.

China usually only imports 20 foreign films a year and censors them carefully.

"Memoirs of a Geisha," which starred Chinese actresses Zhang Ziyi and Gong Li as Japanese geisha escorts, wasn't shown in China amid speculation of concerns it may fan anti-Japanese sentiment.

There were also concerns about scenes set in Shanghai showing tattered underwear hanging from laundry lines in "Mission: Impossible III." Chinese censors eventually approved the film, reports AP.

The Hollywood trade magazine Variety reported earlier this week that "Casino Royale," which sees Bond play in a high-stakes poker match in Italy orchestrated by a financier of global terrorism, is the first Bond movie to screen in China, although pirated copies of past installments are available in the country.
