Chinese Authorities Pull The Croods Out of Theaters


the-croods-post6

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a cinema chain manager from Guangzhou has revealed that Chinese authorities are now forcing theater owners to end the run of DreamWorks’ The Croods two weeks ahead of schedule. The film was originally scheduled to run until June 24. This is not entirely without precedent, as film regulators have also cancelled Django Unchained back in April.

The Croods was successful in China, managing to generate more than $63.7 million in the country as of Thursday. It is said that the reason for the cancellation is because the government is trying to boost numbers for locally-produced animated features, which are currently not doing well in the country.
