Bad New For the Minions

The Middle Kingdom has flipped the small yellow guys the Middle Finger.

"Despicable Me 2" has been denied a theatrical release in China, TheWrap has learned.

It is not clear why the country rejected the film and whether it had to do with censorship issues, but the Universal film -- a juggernaut at the global box office -- will not get a chance to crack the second largest film market in the world, according to a Chinese film executive. ...

This will cut into the picture's total take. (Maybe they should have put a panda in it.)

This is payback for what we did to "The Forbidden Kingdom", though that was 5 years ago and I'm sure they gotten over it by now. Expect piracy of this film to run rampant there now.
