Not coming soon to theaters in Hong Kong: "Seven Years in Tibet," "Kundun" and "Red Corner." In the clearest sign of self-censorship since Hong Kong returned to Chinese sovereignty, three U.S. films thought likely to offend China have yet to find a buyer here. Two of the movies, Columbia/TriStar's "Seven Years in Tibet," starring Brad Pitt, and Walt Disney Co.'s "Kundun," directed by Martin Scorcese, focus on China's invasion of Tibet, homeland of exiled Buddhist leader the Dalai Lama.
