DreamWorks' The Croods Pulled from China for Making Too Much Money

We here at A113Animation liked The Croods, it was fun, it was meaningful and it looked fan-bloody-tastic. Apparently the Chinese liked it too, so much in fact that the Chinese government didn't. The Hollywood Reporter says that government authorities pulled the animated family romp two weeks ahead of its previously scheduled end of the film's run.

Tarantino's Django Unchained, too, was pulled a few months (although that was probably more content related. Croods has made a lot in China, and decimated the country's home-grown animated features; at least the film's going out on a high, there are worse ways to go. The film's worldwide total is just about $570 million. It's still a shame that Rise of the Guardians never approached these levels though...
