If ever there was an American film that directly and popularly targeted a foreign market, it was Disney’s new live-action Mulan Remake. They took the songs, pulled out the talking dragon from a cartoon that people in China hated, and they turned the whole thing into a historical war epic — a style that strongly encourages people in China to really like or like Marvel movies in the States.
Unfortunately for Disney, Mulan Is repeated Stepped into it, Like Star Liu Yifi, has led to many controversies inside and outside China Hong Kong police have made some social media posts against pro-democracy protesters Or when Disney is Credits go to China’s Xinjiang Public Security Bureau The aforementioned company has been accused of “cultural carnage” against the region’s Uyghur Muslim population for allowing film production in the Xinjiang region of the country.
Because of such things, Variety Said The Chinese government has set up a media blackout over coverage Mulan “China seeks to obscure and minimize growing outrage outside.” Surprisingly, it feels a little damaged MulanChina has a chance as the film has grossed only 23 million in the country this weekend. It was enough to win the Chinese Weekend box office crown, but it was only two million more than its closest competitor, the Chinese-made historical war epic. Eight hundred. Future estimates are not very bright, with industry trackers estimating the total to be only 41 million after the end of its Chinese theatrical run (apparently the same trackers were $ 65 million Tenet). Since we do not really cover the American box office, it is very difficult to analyze those numbers from the American perspective and it is unclear how the coronavirus affects theatergoering there, but it does not seem particularly great. Hopefully for Disney Valuable Disney + scheme Works a little better here in the west.
