China is usually just a neat bonus for the studios, so it doesnt matter in this case.

Deadpool will fail because its R-rated, if they're lucky they will make $300m (which is still more than Green Lantern did).

Movies succeeded before breaking into the Chinese market was a thing. To be honest the Chinese market sounds fucken terrible. They would watch any damn movie as long as it has them as the heroes doing great with no negativity at all.

That movie opened next to Avengers 2, it had no chance.

Deadpool is opening in February and Fox already had a hit with Kingsman in the same month, I see no reason why this movie can't do as well if not better than that.

Not to mention it helps that this movie has a low budget, so it's not like it needs a huge box office number to be a success.

Nothing that hasn't happened before. They want money. It's partly why comedy movies are so god awful right now. All the jokes have to be easily translatable for the chinese. It's why so many comedies rely on dances, farts, and crotch shots or their equivalent. You'll never have something like Airplane or Monty Python again.
>>
>>79093966
>Movies succeeded before breaking into the Chinese market was a thing.
And now they depend on the Chinese market, particularly for blockbusters. Times changeThis movie reportedly cost $80mil, likely $100mil with reshoots. That's 1/3rd of a AAA capeshit budget, but it's still a massive cost for any other type of movie. Which is why the Chinese market is so important. The R rating was going to cut this movie's take in half anyway. This is going to kill it before it gets out of the gate.

I don't think it's about Finn. He's still there.

They took out that pilot guy and Chewie entirely. They could have done that to Finn too if they wanted.

They just rearranged the poster so that the droids (ie, toys) are in center view. They're pretty clearly banking on the idea of a bunch of kids clamoring for Soccer Ball Robot toys.

It's running near $100mil not counting marketing. That's not as big as Avengers or BvS, but that's still a ton of cash for any movie. This movie needs the revenue from China, especially since Fox needs cash to cover what they lost from Fant4stic. If they get another superhero bomb they'll likely stick to just doing group X-Men flicks and Wolverine. They and may even reconsider making Gambit, since that's even more of a risk than Deadpool.

Honestly it might make them more money/have more press because of this.

Look at what happened to "The Interview" that movie was always bound to be a piece of shit, but because of all that shit that happened with hackers threatening Sony to not release the movie in theaters and shit, it ended up getting seen by everyone because of the news regarding it.

There is no such thing as bad publicity when it comes to movies.

I'm thinkin' that's the smartest thing they can do. This isn't another F4 debacle where even China looked at it and said "Wowree, that sheet", this is more of they don't wanna' waste a spot on an R-Rated movie.

It's their way of fucking over the western movie industry.
They only allow in a set number of western movies in there and they make up massive potential profits (while also taking bigger cuts than anyone else in the world)

>>
>>79095662
an early version of the script has been available on the internet for like 6 years now, so you could actually find out for yourself.

It's been a while, but all the elements seem the same. Colossus, intercutting between deadpool and wade flashbacks, highway chase scene with flipping car and sticking cigarette lighter in a dudes mouth, etc
