Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was quite a success at North American box office earlier in summer. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt for the very first time, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has clocked in $ 139.8m from North America till now making it 16th highest grossing film of 2019. Made at a reported budget of $ 90m, the film has raked in around $ 366.8m globally coming at 17th place in the list of highest grossing films of 2019 globally.
The film was set to hit the biggest international market i.e. China on 25th October but as per latest reports the film’s release has been put on hold. The reason that has surfaced is that the Chinese censors have demanded changes in the film. As per reports, Chinese are not happy with the portrayal of Bruce Lee in the film. Earlier in an interview, the daughter of Bruce Lee had claimed that the ace director Tarantino portrayed his father as not he was. She claimed that his portrayal of Bruce Lee in “Enter The Dragon Star” was totally untrue and she had appealed China’s National Film Administration to ask Quentin Tarantino to alter the portrayal of his father.
As per reports from Hollywood, the Chinese censors have demanded changes in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood but the Django Unchained director has refused to make changes and that puts the release of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood on hold in China.
