Chinese Censors Reject Dead Man's Chest

Chinese censors have refused to allow PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST to be released in the Asian country. The Film Bureau takes exception at the film's depiction of 'the souls of the dead' and BILL NIGHY's character DAVY JONES, who boasts an "octopus face". However, the JOHNNY DEPP-starring blockbuster could still secure a release if it passes a second round of examination. A Disney spokesperson in Hong Kong says, "Regarding Pirates, we are still gathering information from the Film Bureau and so at this point we cannot comment."
