To Athanasopoulos, Chinese audiences’ increasing demand for blockbusters and higher-re

Athanasopoulos was talking about the science-fiction hit The Wandering Earth during the Spring Festiv
上海品茶微信al holiday. IMAX China’s bet on the film garnered earnings of over 300 million yuan from the box office.
“We see that continuing to happen in the future … and that’s part of the
reason why we made an expansion plan to tap China’s fast-growing premium film scree 上海品茶微信
ning market, which we think is taking up a larger share of China’s overall box office market,” he added.
上海品茶微信女神会所IMAX China’s move to expand came amid growing concerns China is tempering demand for films.
Chen Shaofeng, a professor in culture and entertainment at Peking University, sa
id although IMAX China set an expansion plan, the amount of new cinema 上海品茶微信
s (40) still seems to be modest. “The overall market performance might be an influence,” he added.
“The lower-than-expected box office performance this y 上海品茶微信女神会所ear is partly because of a drop in cin
ema visits, particularly in third-and lower-tier cities where demand is weakening,” Chen said.

Yang cares deeply about audiences and welcomes critical suggestions. “I don’t like hearing praise all the time, since that makes it hard to pro

With 20 years of acting under her belt, Yang allows herself a modicum of confidence. “I used to feel tense and was afraid the director might be dissatisfied with

Yang also says she used to care a little too much about what others thought

Chinese and Western elements and values can find common ground. A good example being the part in the trailer where the matchmaker describes the qu
alities that make for a good wife, namely a woman being “quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined”. This is said with M上海千花网品茶微信
ulan appearing in two images. One has her dressing as a woman, the other with her practicing sword. Obviously Disney de
上海千花网scribed Mulan as a warrior, an independent female who can save herself instead of waiting for someone to save her.
That’s a good point where Chinese and Western values are similar because gender equality and female independence are上海千花网
now valued in both cultures. It will strike a chord with both Chinese and Western audiences.
上海千花网品茶微信But whatever styles her clothes and makeup follow, Mulan is a Chinese legendary heroine and she embodies the virtues of Chinese wo
men. Disney’s Mulan should also prompt the Chinese movie industry to make better use of Chinese stories. Chinese scriptwriters an
d directors can well tell stories about Chinese ancient heroes to the world, instead of waiting for Disney or H上海千花网
ollywood to tell them. Good stories move audiences of the whole world because their hearts are interconnected.
