I finally got to see the new Star Wars film at the cinema today - and IMAX 3D at that! Loved it. It was relaeased in China a month later than the rest of the world as Chinese cinemas are only allowed a certain number of western films each year and they had already reached their limit last month. Plus, there's been some controversy, with the Chinese film poster looking subtly different from the original [see below]. The black actor has been made much less prominent and the Wookiee has been deleted altogether. Racism based on colour AND species, it's been suggested. Still, it's taken more money in China this first weekend than any previous film, which bodes well for more to come. MTFBWY.
