China To Stop Running Avatar

James Cameron's highly successful Avatar has been too successful for China! The mega-hit will officially stop playing in Chinese movie theaters this week because China says it's success is taking away from Chinese films.

Avatar, which was released just over 30 days ago, has grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide and has remained at the number one spot 5 weeks in a row.

Pulling Cameron's new film from it's theaters will make room for more domestic Chinese films. China's biggest film of the year, Confucius, opens this Thursday. Fair or not, with Avatar out of the way it is sure to help out any new flick.
