Weather Alert

China has ruined the Bohemian Rhapsody movie. What hit the cutting room floor?

I knew that China had a bit of a problem with some of the topic matter in this movie and didn’t want it playing in their Country, but it IS playing there now.  When I read what they removed from the movie, I figured they should’ve just played a Queen concert.  Seriously, all the relationships with men, supposedly cut out!  Read below for details….

  • Audiences in China finally got to see the box office smash Bohemian Rhapsody following a few changes to the original theatrical release to satisfy their government.
  • Several minutes of the Oscar-winning flick were left on the cutting room floor, removing all references to the Queen frontman’s sexuality, including the moment where he comes out.
  • Footage of two men kissing, a close-up of Freddie Mercury’s crotch, and a scene of the band in drag were also edited out.
  • Users on Chinese social media site Sina Weibo gave the film mostly positive reviews, but questioned the need for a censored version.
