So I just saw Venom. I thought I would check out what all the fuss was about, and no wonder it's doing well. It's from Tencent Pictures. When you have every person in China to market to through WeChat, no wonder awareness is high. Only a small percentage of people actually had to attend to make the $108m.

Other than that, and what attributed to its 9.4 score, is the mix of action and comedy. As I said before, Chinese love that shit. It's the perfect film for them in that way. Not to mention Hardy pretty much acting like a dude with learning difficulties throughout the film. The voice as well as that weird limp makes him look simple.


And I think with it's Chinese speaking crash-site in Malaysia, and the Chinese shop keeper adding to the moviegoers here having something extra to feel familiar with.

Maybe the shopkeeper because humour is involved, but generally I do not think Chinese being in movies makes any difference to Chinese people's preference of one movie over another. I am certain the Malaysian crash site made zero impact.

They only got put up yesterday, but this poster is on every group of bus billboards I see. It is a striking image. I like the colour tone of this campaign. Would've worked so well in the summer.

If ever wanted a more stark example of culture difference, check out The Grinch.

China: struggling to reach $3 million
America: aiming for $300 million

Creed II will be released on 4th January! The first Creed wasn't released here at all so it will be interesting to see how well this one does. I'm guessing not very well. Boxing isn't popular here and neither are black people.

Well I can't imagine the Grinch brand being that popular or even known much especially with it so connected to Christmas. One of the evil holidays.

I like how blunt you are sometimes.

Yeah, but seemingly everything the US likes China also does, so for The Grinch to be shunned so much is surprising, and Christmas is celebrated here, like, everywhere has Christmas decorations, but it's so superficial and not in any sense a true celebration of Christmas. It's seen more as an excuse to make things glittery.

With five new releases in the last few days, Aquaman has slowed down. Still at $255m, so will probably finish with $265-270m. We have 3 days holiday for NY. Spider-Verse is fucked, though, and will probably struggle to reach $50m total. It's a shame because it's a much, much better movie than DC's latest debacle.

Creed II and Bumblebee are out on 4th January.

Day 1

Creed II bombed with just $600k. Won't even out-gross Escape Plan 2.

Bumblebee hit almost $17 million.

There actually does seem to be a reasonable crowd in some of the Creed II showings I checked this weekend...however it just hardly has any showings at all. It's got just 2 to maybe at most 4 showings per cinema a day and that's with only 2 days in release. The cinemas are just not warming to it, and it shows that they generally just only allow for one foreign film to flourish, and in that case Bumblebee is Tencent backed so it's no surprise there.

Tencent backed or not, Transformers is just on a whole different level of popularity here compared to anything else, especially a boxing movie where the first wasn't shown and has a black lead. But you're right about showtimes. On its third day Creed II only had 18k showings, whereas Bumblebee had 164k. But that's not the reason it's doing poorly. It's per screen average is just $23, whereas Bumblebee's is $119, and that's even with Creed II enjoying a far cheaper average ticket price.
