No China Release for The Dark Knight

Warner Bros. has decided to take a pass on releasing The Dark Knight in China, says Variety.

The studio, which has seen foreign grosses top $465 million for the film, made the disclosure in a statement Tuesday.

“Based on a number of pre-release conditions that are being attached to ‘The Dark Knight’ as well as cultural sensitivities to some elements of the film, we have opted to forego a theatrical release of the film in China,” Warner said.
