Friend of mine is in China currently, he went to the opening night of the force awakens. 4 people were in the cinema.
4 people. Guess the hopes of it doing well and surpassing avatar are completely gone.
>disney gonna go bankrupt (not it won't? jews going bankrupt haha nice joke)
>won't pass Avatar (foreign probs not, US domestix probably will)
What's with the Avatard posting lately.
I understand just shitting on TFA, but do you have to make yourself look like a fag by mentioning that hippie shit which was Avaturd?
All I've been hearing is how it was going to gross more than Avatar and that it hadn't opened in China yet! That China was a huge market and that would boost it to the number one highest grossing movie of all time.
The forgettable Avatar is going to remain no.1 for a while.

>using greentext incorrectly
Implying there is anything wrong with that format. I can do it howevet I goddamn want it you commie cocksucker. Go masturbate to your tree-loving blue thundercats.
>h-hating on muh Jim
Jesus christ suck more furry cock will ya?
I don't give a fuck about cameron, but I despise you shits that complain about one piece of shitty media only to fap while watching another piece of shitty (leftist) media.
yup im in china ATM and all my chinese friends are barely aware of this movie's existence. ive seen some ads on television but otherwise if i didnt go on american internet i would have no idea this shit existed. flop confirmed.
China's box office was a fraction of what it is now back in 2009.
The thing to take away from this is:
>Couldn't even beat Transformers 4
So, TFA is definitely going to outgross Jurrasic World but that's about it. 3rd place isn't that bad,Disney? isn't it?
EVERYONE KNOWS ITS COMPLETELY DEAD
ITS OVER TFA IS FINISHED
MAKE THIS LINE GRAPH >>64663445 WITH WORLDWIDE GROSS INSTEAD OF DOMESTIC AND SEE HOW MASSIVELY HARD DISNEY IS ACTUALLY BTFO

Meme majick to make Force awakens flop in China and not beat based Jims Avatar
fuck all to do with china. it will probably double what avatar made there.
germany, france, russia, spain. japan and korea combined is $600m lower. it just didn't have cameron's meme 3D gimmick powers.
Hang on, hang on, let me get this straight. TFA has:
>4 decades of franchise-building
>it's a film in possibly the biggest movie franchise of all time
>2016 inflation levels/2 decades of inflation over titanic
>hugely inflated 3D tickets sales
>the biggest IMAX rollout of all time and the longest IMAX run for any movie ever domestically
>4 weeks in theatres domestically without losing any screens due to Disney fuckery
>the biggest international rollout for a film ever, premiering on over 30,000 screens worldwide
>the huge expansion of the China market and overseas markets in general
>millions of fans to making the film a success no matter how well it's recieved
>hundreds of paid reviewers shilling for the movie constantly all over the news
And Titanic had:
>james cameron directing
And you're telling me that it's not even going to beat fucking Titanic?

If you think Cameron only has the 3D trick up his sleeve, you have no idea who you're dealling with, and should head on back to your Wookieepedia subreddit
Titanic was feckin' enormous in China. It would have been the first foreign film millions of people saw in the cinema. Schools block-booked to take their students to see it. If you go to karaoke in China, they will insist that you sing My Heart Will Go On.

You're Chinese. You get the internet finally 5 years ago. You have every western film ever made available to pirate. You think they pirate some kitsch sci-fi movies with bad effects from the 80s?
The Internet exists in China ya dingus.
I used to work for a Chinese guy while he was over here perpetually getting a PhD and "owning" a restaurant that really his dad paid for and his mother and me did all the work. He'd only been in America 2 years when I met him. Anyway, he used to watch all these American shows and movies with Chinese subtitles that he got from Chinese websites. He'd ask what shows or movies I liked and would find them on a Chinese streaming site similar to watchseries. Most of the time before the DVD release date.
He knew about Star Wars. I don't know, somehow Darth Vader came up, he knew who that was. Knew he was Luke's father, and told me Jedi are apparently named something differently in Mandarin.
They hype the fuck out of weird shit over there. The most pirated TV show last year was the Netflix House of Cards.
Disney shills reaching this hard
Eh, true enough (though apparently five years ago the number of Chinese internet users was already well over the population of the US). But it means what >>64663532 says is hardly implausible. Plus the films have been shown on TV. Plus the prequels did come out in China.
Yeah, I really was confused why a corrupt American politician show was so popular in China.
Kind of like how the most read book in Best Korea is Gone With the Wind. I really don't understand how they identify with it. Maybe the destruction of Savannah and Scarlett saying "I'll never be hungry again."?
>I have no idea how public debt works the post
Take a finance or economics class, you fucking uneducated nigger.
A) The majority of US debt is owned by US citzens
B) Of foreign-owned debt, China owns a fraction of a percentage
C) The US dollar is the world's reserve currency, meaning debt for us is literally like printing money in a way that doesn't weaken our money supply
D) The US in its history has never skipped out on a payment, if it wanted to pay off its entire debt tomorrow it could.
>Plus the prequels did come out in China.
It's entirely possible then that most Chinese people associate Star Wars entirely with the prequels, which would explain the complete ambivalence to this reboot.
The government probably likes it for showing American democracy in a bad light. Although knowing the Chinese internet I'd bet half of the comments are remarks about how local government figures in China are 10,000x worse.
>The majority of US debt is owned by US citzens
Call in your share then
lol couldn't even beat Jurassic world. tfa dead in the water beaten by dinosaurs.
>many friends of mine all praise thats a good movie
>no surprise, no interested
kek, nice summary. But it's funny how well China pandering works. "we went to see Avatar because the design team was inspired by Chinese resorts", jesus
YOU DO REALIZE HOW DESPERATE THIS IS, RIGHT?
THE SHILLS ARE TWISTING THEMSELVES INTO PRETZELS TRYING TO SELL THIS OBVIOUS FLOP
IT SHOULD BE THE RECORD OPENING DAY IN CHINA PERIOD

Where did anyone else say this?
And it's true. Furious 7 opening to $63.5m, which includes 52.5m yuan ($8m) in midnight previews. The article has it at $54.5m, which only includes the actual opening Sunday's sales.
>The article has it at $54.5m
>It's also the biggest opening day in history for the studio, as well as the second-biggest single-day gross of all time behind Furious 7 ($54.4 million), which debuted on a Sunday.
yes, thats for a single day, sunday
learn to fucking read. it said nothing about the opening weekend
It's LITERALLY the highest earning opening saturday in chinese cinematic history
Cameronfags are in huge denial
>The Force Awakens’ In China With $33M; Market’s Best Saturday Bow Ever; Top All-Time For Disney
You're a fucking idiot. They have included the $2.4m TFA got on Friday midnight showings in China into the $33m opening day Saturday they tout. Furious 7 had over $8m in midnight showings on Saturday and opened on Sunday to $54.5m, YET they only cite the $54.5m figure instead of the whole $63.5m. They're literally twisting the figures to make it seem like it did better than it actually did, not to mention the shill title which make it seems like TFA set an opening day record.
If you don't recognize how poor this is then you have absolutely no idea how the box office in China works. Note that they have to use the wording "opening saturday" (literally no hollywood blockbuster opens on a saturday in china, so it's literally competing with itself) because it's not even top 4 all time when it comes to saturday grosses for a film. Even including the $2.4m TFA got in midnight showings, Age of Ultron opened on a Tuesday and grossed $38m in its first saturday.
show me the part in the article that says they included friday sales in the total
54m or 64m or 100m, who cares? it didnt beat any of the totals so why are you sperging out
also, boxoffice mojo numbers dont even match wikipedias
Also it's heading for a 40%+ drop tomorrow which is absolutely awful. It's not even going to gross $150m in China and it's not even going to outgross Titanic worldwide.

the movie came out in china today, saturday the ninth
Sorry, the movie came out in China yesterday which for them was a Saturday, the ninth of January. Which was the Chinese release date of the movie.
So no, there is no problem with the wording of the headline. The movie's opening day in China was a Saturday. You're retarded.
people like to pretend that they like avatar as a shit tier joke
people who get all their opinions from 4chan think they are suppose to like avatar
its just like the whole brony thing
>The film is currently on track for an opening day gross of $33 million, which would be Disney’s highest opening day ever in China, and the highest Saturday opening in the country’s history
It bombed in South Korea too.
There just isn't nostalgia factor to the franchise in those countries, they were poor as shit when the first films were coming out, there is no emotional attachment the studios can abuse with marketing. Like they very successfully did in USA and in Europe.
THEN THEY WOULD HAVE SPECIFIED SATURDAY, LIKE SO:
>>64669412 >Best Saturday Bow
"RECORD OPENING DAY" IMPLIES ITS THE #1 EVER MOVIE OPENING IN CHINA, WHICH IT WAS NOT. FURTHER IT'S NOT EVEN #2 BUT MUCH LOWER >>64669611
DISNEY IS DELIBERATELY PLAYING RELEASE DAY GAMES IN ORDER TO TWIST PERCEPTIONS AND GIVE A DISHONEST IMPRESSION OF BETTER THAN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE

He's not though. The petrodollar is a license to print money. If anyone wants to buy oil on the open market, it is bought and sold in USD. There is only one place to get US dollars. From the US. They have to buy the money to buy oil.
Anytime anyone has even started talking about selling oil for other currencies you get anything from an assassination to a full scale invasion.
Solid gold isn't going to mean shit. Peak oil has been a bogey man just over the horizon since the 70's. It's the collapse of the world economy and a free fall to rock bottom. And it's forever.
Who gives a shit about China anymore, now that it's clear they're going to become completely bankrupt in the coming weeks or months?
all of the years and years of false hype about China being the next big money-maker and economic powerhouse is finally crumbling down.
