Despite the fact that Chinese officials have refused to allow Memoirs of a
Geisha to be shown theatrically in the country, bootleg DVDs are easy to
come by, Reuters reported Tuesday. One sidewalk vendor in Beijing offered a
copy to a Reuters reporter for 85 cents, saying, "Of course it's been banned,
but it doesn't really matter. All of my supply is pirated."
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
