A Chinese man uses a smartphone to take his own photo with an "Iron Man" poster together with a costumed figure, left, during a promotional event of the new movie "Iron Man 3" at the Imperial Ancestral Temple in Beijing's Forbidden City. From demanding changes in plot lines that denigrate the Chinese leadership, to dampening lurid depictions of sex and violence, Beijing is having increasing success in pressuring Hollywood into deleting movie content Beijing finds objectionable. It�s even getting American studios to sanction alternative versions of films specially tailored for Chinese audiences, like �Iron Man 3,� which debuts in theaters around the world later this week. The Chinese version features local heartthrob Fan Bingbing - absent from the version showing abroad - and lengthy clips of Chinese scenery that local audiences love. (AP Photo/Andy Wong, File)
