Quentin Tarantino Refuses to Recut ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ for China Release
Quentin Tarantino’s theatrical cut of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is the only cut he wants in theaters around the world. Variety has confirmed the director will not be recutting his ninth feature film in order to allow it to have a release in Chinese theaters. News broke earlier today China was blocking the October 25 theatrical release of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” for unspecified reasons. China was set to be the last international market in which “Hollywood” would debut, and it could have pushed the movie’s worldwide box office haul close to or above the $400 million mark.
