According to the Hollywood reporter, the new Ghostbusters film was denied distribution in China, which happens to be the number 2 film market in the world at the moment. According to the article, it was mostly due to the fact that China has very strict guidelines about not showcasing movies that might promote a cult, or supernatural entities of any kind. Plus, there was the concern that most of China's citizens never saw the first two movies, so most Chinese officials didn't think the reboot would appeal to their citizens. What are your thoughts on this? also, how many of you all want to bet Sony will throw out the sexist card for this like they have EVERYBODY that doesn't see the new ghostbusters film in the US? lmao.
By the way, here's a link if you all want to read more about it yourself.

Judging from the reviews I've read so far, the new Ghostbusters probably should've been banned in the US too, cuz it's supposedly quite terrible.
Back to the Future and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure are also banned in China because time travel "disrespects history," so I believe them when they say Ghostbusters is banned because it has ghosts.
