There can only be one explanation to this article about this latest chinese attitude towards the movie (well, maybe two possible explanations):
1- The Chinese goverment have a stake on their media bootleggin industry
2- The Chinese won't accept competion from overseas "pirates"

Richard Rittierodt - All Headline News Staff Writer
Hollywood, CA (BANG) - "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" has been banned in China.

Chinese censors have refused to allow the film to be screened because of its "violent and supernatural content".

Reports suggest the Film Bureau, which is government controlled, didn't approve of the movie's portrayal of souls of the dead or the ferocious "octopus-faced" character, Davy Jones, played by actor Bill Nighy.

Although China does not have a film rating system, censors usually reject scenes of sex and violence, passing only 20 foreign films a year.

Meanwhile, the movie has broken box office records on its first weekend of release.

In the US, the pirate sequel took a record $132 million in just three days - beating the previous high of $115 million set by "Spider-Man" in May 2002.

On Friday alone, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" took $55.5 million - beating previous record holder "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" which took $50 million on its first day of release last year.

Thanks, Turtle. In true fareness to the Chinese, though, they are taking giant strides toward adopting market capitalism and accepting its rules of engagement (as if they could stop the tidal wave of changes anyway, right?). Their disregard for the established laws concerning intellectual ownership, however, continues to be a headache for the US movie and record industry.

Yes, I hope they live long and prosper. Though they have had some bumpy years as of recent past, the Chinese have always kept to their roots too a large extent. I wish I knew more about their history as well as their present governmental system. For a long time China has been a business and cultural boon to the world. If America and China could merge into a harmonious oneness that would be a true boon for both parties and the world. For now I suppose we should refine ourselves from within, to hopefully, some day meet in equality.

P.S. If a headache is all we get, no doubt the Chinese could diagnose and cure it, teach us how to prevent it from happening again, and all without poisonous prescriptions and lazer beam cannons.(lol)

lmao, turtle you truely are a comedic genius! and as for what you said about wanting to know more about Chinese history I'd be glad to give you a breefing any time. although, in truth I can't say I agree with the dession to banning the "Dead Man's Chest" movie because widely in china people still practice black magic. and for them to not show the movie because supernatural content is a complete hipocrocy.
