From China to Brexit, Screen gazes into its crystal ball…1. China
Odeon Holloway Road
From spectacular deal-making to expanding quotas, fluctuating box office to industry delegations, China was the biggest industry talking point of 2016.
The world’s most populated country now boasts more cinema screens than the Us (as of November) and is set to become the world’s largest box office territory by 2018.
Thanks to a number of eye-watering deals, Dalian Wanda – which in 2016 acquired Legendary Entertainment for a reported $3.5bn and Odeon & Uci Cinema Group for $1.2bn – now operates 8.1% of world cinema screens, representing 15% of total global box office.
The deals and opportunities look set to continue in 2017 with the evolution of quotas for Us blockbusters and more opportunities for arthouse films and the weekly emergence of notable media players. But will Us lawmakers flinch in the face of voracious domestic acquisition and will China’s box office growth hit a significant speed bump?
