Casino Royale To Be Released In China
CASINO ROYALE will become the first JAMES BOND movie to be granted a release in China - 45 years after the suave spy first came to the screen.
Scenes of international espionage and 007's love of women prompted Chinese censors to reject movie after movie, but times are changing.
Sony Pictures China's general manager LI CHOW says, "Everyone has seen James Bond movies on pirated DVDs, so expectations are high.
"The fact it's the first Bond makes it much more important - after 45 years, 21 films, this is finally the first one in China."
