Black comedy about Nazi Germany ‘Jojo Rabbit’ will not air in Russia
Twentieth Century Fox’s branch for the Commonwealth of Independent States has reported to the Russian film news outlet Kinoreporter that the company does not plan to distribute Taika Waititi’s film Jojo Rabbit in Russia. Twentieth Century Fox did not explain the reasoning behind that decision.
Jojo Rabbit is a dark historical comedy that follows a 10-year-old German boy as his imaginary friend, a goofy double of Adolf Hitler, helps him reexamine Nazi ideology. The film will be released internationally on October 18.
