The blockbuster has grossed some-more than $261m (£199m) reduction than a month after its release.

Cambodia has banned Hollywood film Kingsman: The Golden Circle over its purported disastrous description of the kingdom.

The decision was done last week on the grounds that the blockbuster was unsuitable for internal audiences.

Authorities contend the film uses “Cambodian land as the place where the terrorists stay and make difficulty for the world”.

Meanwhile, the internal placement company called the decision “childish”.

Since it was expelled reduction than a month ago the movie, which is a supplement to Kingsman: The Secret Service, has grossed some-more than $261m (£199m).

The action-comedy film chronicles British and American spy organisations teaming up in hunt of the secret bottom of a drug lord.

Once they find the base, which is a church surrounded by jungles in Cambodia, a showdown between the two sides ensues.

“After we reviewed the film we found some problems,” Bok Borak, from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts told Cambodian English daily The Phnom Penh Post.

The central cited the film’s transparent anxiety to Cambodia as a place where villains are formed and “make difficulty for the world” as a major indicate of concern.

While the film does not name the temple, he pronounced it resembles Ta Prohm, a chronological church that was stamped as World Heritage by Unesco in 1992.

Cambodia, a dominion in southeast Asia, has formerly banned 4 other cinema including Fifty Shades of Grey and The Wolf of Wall Street, citing identical concerns.

Westec Media, which purchased the internal placement rights of the movie, pronounced the decision was “childish or immature”.

“Every film can't be depicting Cambodia as sky .  You need to face the reality that all countries have criminals,” he said.
