As many people know, April 15th marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The well-loved film has recently been released in 3D in theaters but China thought Titanic3D might be a bit too intense and opted to censor parts. No, I am not talking about the scenes of the Titanic crashing or the ship flooding; I am referring to Kate Winslet's nude scenes.
To cut to the chase, the Chinese government elected to censor these parts of the movie because they feared that viewers would reach out and try to grab Kate's breasts due to the "realer than most" 3D experience and make the other people in the audience uncomfortable.
The scene that bares her breasts has now been replaced with a head-and-shoulders close up (similar to what is seen above). I think we need to give the men a little more credit. Yes, I can understand a sex scene being arousing (especially in 3D) BUT I doubt they would be reaching out to cop a feel. And if they did, I think I would find it to be more funny than offensive.
I will leave you with a comment from an angry and disappointed "Offbeat China" blogger:
