‘Hellboy’ Set for China Theatrical Release

‘Hellboy’ Set for China Theatrical Release
The 2019 “Hellboy” reboot is set to hit Chinese cinemas on Monday, Nov. 9, more than a year and a half after its U.S. debut.

The film ranked as one of the biggest box office flops of 2019, grossing just $22 million stateside and $44.7 million worldwide, despite a production budget of $50 million.

Although interest in the film currently appears low in China, even the most modest of China runs could nonetheless help pull the film out of the red. Only 24,000 Chinese consumers had clicked to indicate they “want to see” the film on the Maoyan data platform as of Thursday, compared to the 123,000 people who are eager to see the upcoming nationalistic local war film “The Sacrifice.”

Directed by Neil Marshall, the superhero film stars David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim. It was distributed elsewhere by Lionsgate and produced by Millennium Films, Summit Entertainment, Campbell Grobman Films,

#MyNameIs Trends As Daniel Dae Kim, Kal Penn & More Celebrate Name Origins, Shame GOP Senator For Mocking Kamala Harris Pronunciation
Hollywood stars, political figures and more are celebrating the varying meanings and origins of their names after a video of GOP Sen. David Perdue mocking vice president candidate Kamala Harris’ name went viral.

“Kamala or Kamala-mala-mala-mala, I don’t know. Whatever,” Perdue said during a Trump rally in Georgia.

Hours after Twitter users expressed frustration and disappointment with Perdue’s failure and lack of effort to correctly pronounce Harris’ name, #MyNameIs began trending on the social media platform.

“#MyNameIs Daniel Dae Hyun Kim, or in Korean, 김대현. It means “great and powerful one.” My name is not “Macaca” or “Kung Flu.” And @sendavidperdue, her name is not “Kamala Mala Mala I Don’t Know Whatever.” #Respect. One more reason to vote for @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris,” Daniel Dae Kim tweeted on Saturday.

On the final day of New York Comic Con, The Good Doctor creator David Shore joined his cast to tease the show’s Season 4 return and its two-part premiere, “Frontline,” centered on the Covid-19 pandemic.

The world hopefully will go back to what we viewed as normal, but it just would have been dishonest not to deal with this story,” the creator said. “Having said that, it is an incredible story.

Ana's Alliance for Inclusive and Multicultural Marketing Challenges Entertainment Industry to Recognize Cultural Authenticity

Daniel Dae Kim Asks Congressional Committee to Show “Empathy” for Asian Americans Facing Bias

Daniel Dae Kim Asks Congressional Committee to Show “Empathy” for Asian Americans Facing Bias
Daniel Dae Kim originally did not intend to testify in front of the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary about diversity in the media — but one House vote last week changed his mind.

As the Hawaii 5-0 actor and The Good Doctor executive producer testified on the diversity in media hearing on Thursday, he initially thought the importance of diversity in media was “self-evident” and didn’t need a hearing. He changed his mind after seeing about 40 percent of the House vote “no” the week prior on House Resolution 908, which called for “public officials to condemn and denounce anti-Asian sentiment,...

Why a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Isn’t Enough to Honor James Hong

Why a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Isn’t Enough to Honor James Hong
James Hong is everywhere.

No, really — at the spry age of 91, he is one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood history, with 672 credits to his name. He’s starred in several notable films, including “Blade Runner” and “Big Trouble in Little China,” and voiced Po’s father, Mr. Ping, in the “Kung Fu Panda” franchise. His TV resume includes a slew of classics such as “Seinfeld,” “Friends” and both versions of “Hawaii Five-0.” He also has an upcoming movie, “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” in which he plays father to Michelle Yeoh’s character.

“I could just relax and tour the world, but I don’t want to do that,” Hong tells Variety in his third Zoom call ever. “My occupation is an actor, producer and I’m a little too old to be a director, but that’s tempting.”

Daniel Dae Kim Talks James Hong Walk Of Fame Campaign And Importance Of Advocating For Asian Hollywood

Daniel Dae Kim Talks James Hong Walk Of Fame Campaign And Importance Of Advocating For Asian Hollywood
Daniel Dae Kim is probably best known for his role in the iconic sci-fi series Lost as well as his role in Hawaii Five-0. He has since become a gamechanger and disrupter when it comes to advocacy for Asians, Asian Americans and other underrepresented voices in Hollywood.

In 2017, he and Grace Park, who is also Asian, exited the CBS reboot of the classic ahead of the eighth season due to contractual agreements surrounding salary. This shined a light on salary parity in film and TV and how it impacts people of color and other marginalized voices — something that the industry has been grappling with for decades.

He forged his own path with his production banner 3Ad, which produced The Good Doctor and has many irons in the fire via his first-look deal with Amazon. He is producing a comedy with deaf actor and model Nyle Dimarco as well as the
