Why Star Wars Has Always Struggled In China, According To Rogue One’s Donnie Yen

For all of its box office dominance at home and overseas, Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise has always struggled to leave much of a mark on China. But why?

The problem is two-fold, it seems. For one, the Original Trilogy never received a wide release in the Middle Kingdom, while films like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi became a hard sell because they rely so heavily on callbacks to the Star Wars films of old.

By stark contrast, China’s biggest Hollywood imports (see: The Fast and the Furious franchise) have managed to rack up almost $400 million in box office receipts, leaving Lucasfilm’s recent Star Wars in the dust – Solo, for instance, took just $10.1M during its opening weekend in the Middle Kingdom.

‘Mission: Impossible’: Is Tom Cruise Irreplaceable?
Tom Cruise is officially back in action.

After underwhelming receipts from “American Made,” “The Mummy” reboot, and “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” Cruise’s latest blockbuster, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” signals a return to form for a movie star who needs to prove he’s still profitable as he nears his sixth decade on the planet.

With $153 million globally — including $61.5 million in North America and $92 million internationally — the newest installment in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise marked a series best opening. Prior to that, “Mission: Impossible II” boasted the biggest debut at $57.8 million, not adjusted for inflation, while the last iteration, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” launched with $55.5 million.

Perhaps “Mission: Impossible’s” greatest stunt is its ability to bank of the success of its leading man, a feat few franchises are able to pull off in an era of diminishing star power. Once upon a time, A-listers like Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson,

Skyscraper (2018) – Review

Alright, it’s roughly the Summer midpoint, so let’s escape the “dog days” by heading into the cool confines of the local multiplex and catch a flick that practically screams, “big, loud, blockbuster”. This isn’t a new thing, for the past several decades (maybe since the late 70’s), the Summer action extravaganza has been the domain of several stars that seem to be playing much the same character in every flick (that’s the case with “movie personalities” since the dawn of cinema), who seem to have almost been biological engineered for such “heavy lifting”. For the seventies it was Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson, then with the 80’s they “flexed” their talents to greater heights with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Toward the end of the decade we got TV stars like Bruce Willis and martial arts masters such as Jean Claude Van-Damn and Steven Seagal. Now

Outfest 2018 To Feature Record Number of Female, Trans and Directors of Color

The 2018 Outfest Film Festival, the largest Lgbtq film festival in Los Angeles, will feature its most inclusive lineup of filmmakers with narrative and documentary features that reflect a growing sense of activism in the Trump era.

Organizers of Outfest, which which kicks off Thursday night, are celebrating a record number of entries this year by filmmakers of color, women and transgender directors. Two-thirds of films screening at the festival are from these underrepresented groups, a new milestone, said Outfest director of programming Lucy Mukerjee. Last year, 50% of the films at the festival were directed by women.

Mukerjee explained that it has become imperative for Outfest to be more inclusive and intersectional, reflecting not just one narrow view of the Lgbtq community.

“Putting the creative visions of women and people of color and transgender directors on the same plane as cisgender, white directors felt like the only logical and ethical thing to do,

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper’ to Tackle ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ at Box Office

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper’ to Tackle ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp,’ ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ at Box Office
The domestic box office will be a battle between the Rock and a tropical place.

New entries “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” and Dwayne Johnson’s “Skyscraper” will compete with the second weekend of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” as all three head for $30 million-plus outings. The two box office newcomers hope to offer audiences something different during a popcorn season dominated by Spandexed heroes and raging dinosaurs, but this weekend’s results look to be a cliffhanger.

“Hotel Transylvania 3” looks to check in with around $38 million, though it could make as much as $48 million when it opens in 4,200 locations. The latter part of that range would be in line with the debut of its predecessors. “Hotel Transylvania” bowed in 2012 with $42 million, while its 2015 follow-up got a slight headstart with $48 million. The two animated features pocketed $358 million and $473 million worldwide, respectively. Each film in the franchise has had an $80 million price tag.
