There's One Country That Won't Be Showing 'Deadpool' As It's Been Officially Banned
You might be able to guess where…
Every trailer in the lead up to the film's release date, 12th February, has given us plenty of confirmation that the filmmakers have kept the comic character's disdain for rules, and have made the movie pretty outrageous.
Although we see all of this as inline with the comedy genre, and we're pretty sure there are more offensive films out there, the Chinese government have made an executive decision to can the film from being shown.
That's right, according to The Hollywood Reporter, officials in the People's Republic of China have actually banned people from watching the movie because of its violence, nudity and offensive language.
Films are either banned or deemed for for show in China by an organisation called SAPPRFT, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.
Often Hollywood producers will cut films to reach a wider audience, however, in the case of Deadpool, filmmakers reportedly believe any changes would affect the plot structure.
Deadpool hits cinemas on 12th February — but not in China.
