> China Box Office: 'Star Wars' Loses Weekend to Chinese Film 'Boonie Bears 3'
> J.J. Abrams' global blockbuster slipped 70 percent in its second weekend in China after its screen count was drastically reduced.
BOONIE. BEARS. 3.
> mfw if the leads were white and male they probably would've trashed avatar
this film was #1 in Mexico, beating out Star Wars.
As a Mexican, Mexicans would rather watch silly dumb shit than a girl protagonist and a black guy in anything.
LOOK AT THESE SMUG MOTHERFUCKERS
YOU JUST KNOW
they can't be nostalgic to something that came out before they were allowed to watch western movies.
The first western movie to be shown first-run in Chinese movie theaters was Forrest Gump. They don't have any cultural references before that movie.
remember when the majority of /tv/ was like
>IT'S NOT OUT IN CHINA!!
and the few of us that aren't completely fucking retarded were saying
>ASIAN'S ARE RACIST AND SEXIST!
>THEY DON'T HAVE YOUR NOSTALGIA EITHER YOU STUPID FUCKS!
we even pointed out how other asian countries weren't watching but they kept saying MUH CHINA IS BIG MARKET AND WILL MAKE 600 MILLION THERE!!
why is /tv/ always wrong?
hahah holy shit
based chink putting niggers on blast
THis actuarry rook Super entertain !!
America rerease when,,
I'm not arguing the American taste in film is the be all and end all. TFA has been popular in just about every country in the whole world it has been released except for China.
You're the one who's scrambling for the arguments regarding the film not being a success in China, so please tell me why their taste is objectionably better than the rest of the world's? Or are you actually so desperate for TFA to be a flop by this point that you're overlooking the fact that it's the second most successful film ever just because it hasn't performed spectacularly in one country?
>literally copied the heli gunships from AVATAR
it was already over before it began
It's still one of the highest grossing movies of all time, sure mega corporations like disney want it all, but i doubt they're crying in their sleep about it. If they had used a white male/white female lead and a villain who doesn't like like he's ready to shoot up a school it would have broken all records tho'.
>tfw Boonie Bears 3 is a bigger success in China
sorry if i that offendes you, i guess as an autistic looking virgin you can relate to him.
China and much of Asia doesn't give much of a fuck about Star Wars in the first place. But I rather studios take a 200 mil cut in global profits by not pandering to China's racism and ~*traditional values*~ The movie still did amazingly well even without the Chinese market.
This is the highest grossing movie of all time in China. TFA never stood a chance.
This is a country that only recently stopped screening pure communist propaganda movies, mentally speaking they're basically where America was during Disney's golden age.
Cheesy family shit for everyone.
It's because of the black guy, not even kidding. If they wanted to use a black guy, they should have chosen someone that is already famous that they will recognize (like Will Smith and Samuel Jackson). He is also a bit too dark and ugly, and he doesn't have that kind of stereotypical funny nigger attitude that they expect from black people.
Trust me, I'm
That's because they would be played by whites and poo niggers.
My sides. Fucken brilliant.
You're right, Disney's golden age was worse.
It didn't start getting good until they studied anime and cracked the eternal code for qts.
Pure nostalgia bait and not much else.
I can't imagine modern Disney girls having those tiny eyed fetal alcohol faces of Cinderella or Snow White.
That is true. But we don't like whites either. Next time you crackers go to any Asian country, learn some of the slang words for "White person" before going. When you are there, listen to the Asians as we talk shit about you in our language. We will even do while nodding and smiling kindly at you.
Think about it. If Disney had just made Finn Asian in the first place (like everybody on this board said they should) TFA would have been the biggest movie of all time.
Let that set in for a second. Disney literally sacrificed having the number one movie of all fucking time just so they could have a black Finn.
Now Episode VII is being delayed because they have to rewrite thr entire script, so they can add an Asian female to the cast and so they can change her role from Finn's love interest (the Chinese will not want that) to maybe Poe's or someone else's.
>tfw you're absolutely right.
I can't believe they actually pissed away their opportunity to make the ultimate buck just to shoehorn their "diversity" shit. Oh well, in 50 years time the new Star Wars trilogy will probably be all-Chinese.
Meanwhile in Sweden, they are sentenced to community service.
I Think TFA was worse than Phantom Menace. It's 100% unoriginal, with shit characters. Nothing memorable about it. It's quite evident as well since everyone has already forgot about it. Only people who cared are the meme forcers on /tv/.
Hollywood, why are you doing shit movies, brainless crap who never challenge the audience or even make them think ?
> Because, dear anon, that's what the people want. We're here to make money and therefore we need to give people what they want, no matter how stupid it is.
Then why did you put a black lead in Star Wars, knowing it's going to make some people refuse to watch ?
> B... because we have a duty to teach people and... uh... well.
I hope someone in hollywood brings up the fact that casting black people as leads is bad for business because the chinese are racist. It's a legitimate argument that doesn't make you sound bigoted.
Holy shit ! Torrent fucking where ?
>Most agressive promotion in the history of Kikery
>still flops all over the world
>will not reach 2 bln even
Manchildren reddits of the US must up your efforts and go see this piece of crap for the 10th time
>This is a country that only recently stopped screening pure communist propaganda movies, mentally speaking they're basically where America was during Disney's golden age.
Fuck off American retard. There is nothing more degnerate and mentally backwards than your shit country.
>greatly enjoyed fucking no tits and ass with disgusting brown vaginas and nipples and cat screams during sex
The beta is real.
Yes and USA just never stopped with the jewish liberal propaganda. At least Disney was a proud Americain who loved european culture.
>mfw they had to anticipate the screening of SW in Italy or else they would have had their sales smashed by a locally produced comedy, and Disney still lost
What if Finn was asian? What kind of box office would it have? How does star trek's performance in china vs domestic ratio compare to star wars'?
>Let that set in for a second. Disney literally sacrificed having the number one movie of all fucking time just so they could have a black Finn.
>being this delusional
TFA wouldn't have come close to Avatar either way.
You know, even with all the whateverness TFA gets here, I don't find it surprising that something like BOONIE BEARS 3 is more popular in China.
A vast majority of Asians have an immensely bad taste in film, music, and games in general.
>the community service even sounds a little too harsh, but he'll learn his lesson and repay his debt to society.
If I knew I could get away with rape with a bit of community service, I would rape a lot more than I do now.
>"H-Heh BASED! JJ Abrahms is totes finished my r-reddit /v/ros! XD"
I hate pleb shit like (laughs) "Star Wars" but I hate pathetic cucks like you guys who are in total denial. The movie is the number one box gross of all time, I'm sure Abrahms couldn't give less of a fuck. Also, don't reply to this, I'm heading this thread after this post, just wantes to laugh at you retarded redditors and I wanted you to know I was doing it. Enjoy
You're girls love us that broseph, that's still gotta sting pretty hard. I don't give a shit what some cuck calls me in a foriegn languagw because he doesn't have the balls to say it to my face anyway
Cameron and Trump will make Anime real one day
>like everybody on this board said they should
not everyone is a weeb like you.
finn is fine tbqh and look at the media chinese support idc about their opinions on ours.
My friend lives in China currently and people ask her to take pictures with them because it's so cool that they saw a white person. Her friend that speaks mandarin says that the shit talking does happen but is really rare and people generally treat white people like celebrities. Just because you're one of those shit-talkers doesn't mean that most people are
All this talk of "if we change the race of a character, it will make up a 1 billion dollar deficit" is dogshit. For the sake of the argument maybe it would have, but the point is: it didn't. Furthermore, what does it matter how much money it made? People on this board don't judge movies by the amount of money they made. I think we can all agree that Taxi Driver or Apocalypse Now are better movies than Avatar, but they made nowhere near the amount of money Avatar did. And it's not like you're making any of the money from TFA or Avatar so you don't even have a dog in this fight. Just why, nigga? Why?
>Earn more than 1BM$
>Will be always considered a flop because it didn't got the asian market
How much retard you must be Jew Jew Abrams for fuck up the obviously top grossing movie of all time... Thankfully the chineses called your shit out. They never watched the original trilogy and SW movies until last few years, and could say how shit it was wihtout the nostialgia googles.
You ruined everything, congratulations dipshit.
The real problem isn't nostalgia or Ooga Booga. Thanks to sinergy, the western audience was forced to like TFA regardless they wanted to or not. It was literally impossible to escape from the shilling, Disney amd Hasbro use all their might to ensure the massive hypnotism. Meanwhile, Asia has its own corporations pushing their own agendas. TFA received a huge publicity but nothing near the levels of worldwide cult of the west.
Nevertheles, it's easier to blame Ooga Booga. Disney never wanted him in the first place
Thank God I'm not american, but I still felt a barrage of Star Wars shit for like almost a month. You guys are living a nightmare.
I see nothing wrong with Mammies.
This is true.
Disney literally reduced Finn on the posters and took him out of trailers. They knew he was a liability. And he turned out to be one, as TFA underperformed in the Asian marketplace.
Oh, and that narrative that Asia doesn't know what Star Wars is is total Dosney corporate horseshit. That was the "story" they decided to go with to cover up the real story about Finn and Asia's lack of respect for black people.
Nah, the brainwash worked very well on US and Europe. There'll be massive changes on ep VIII though. The opening was delayed and it's official that the script is being re-written
Well JJ personally cost Disney a few hundred million then. No question.
I mean overall, JJ did a steady workman like job on the film. It's compotently made and more entertaining than the prequels. However, it is so derivative that it is hard not to be slightly disappointed that they didn't take more risks, or challenge themselves to thrust the narrative forward.
I'm not knocking boyega either. He was fine. But honestly, Finn should have been Asian. Logic, finances, and even fairness (we already had Captain Panaka, Mace Windu, and Lando as pretty significant black male protagonists in the series....to say nothing of all the expanded universe characters) dictated that.
The thing is Hollywood lives in a bubble and their obsession with black good guy characters is shared by very few of the major markets on Earth.
honestly, the story is pretty plain/boring and the only thing it has going for it is special effects
plus putting a nigger so prominently in the movie doesn't help.
no self respecting chinese will pay for a movie starring a nigger.
>Holds back all the arts
>Inventor of what we know as science fiction was a huge racist and portrayed caricatures of blacks, Arabs and Asians in many of his best works
Haha, racism has nothing to do with the arts you retard
>it's another TFA hate thread
>it's another thread where a bunch of white people pretend to be asian
>it's another thread where people pretend to hate blacks
>mfw episode 1, 2, and 3 had better openings and weekly gross than TFA in Japan
> it's another thread where a person acts like the sensible voice of reason (because he thinks it makes him interesting and heroic).
It's worth revisiting as a topic because of episode VII getting pushed back due to the need to add an Asian female to the cast and to rewrite her so she won't be Finn's love interest for obvious reasons
I've literally been paid just to put on a suit and just stand around at a Chinese business event because I'm a tall white man. There were at least a dozen of us because in the eyes of the Chinese doing business with white men and just having them around gives the impression of success.
>ITT Neckbeards desperately cling to Chink box office figures to try and feel superior to black people
Fast and Furious 7 and Transformers blew the box office out in China. The Chinks have awful taste.
Also Mexicans aren't white. gtfo spics.
>Fast and Furious 7 and Transformers blew the box office out in China.
Because of Chinese pandering. Just like The Martian.
And guess what TFA didn't do? Pander to the Chinese, at all.
Star Wars' fans hope of TFA beating Avatar is dead already because Disney didn't include a Chinaman in the movie.
JJ tryin to get involved in land war in asia.
NEVER GET INVOLVED IN A LAND WAR IN ASIA!
I don't remember china pandering in furious 7.
F&F is the only film series to do diversity well though, because its not some jew or white woman projecting their impression of race (black&white are the only races in the world to them)
>his dad is black
Have you ever looked at at his fucking dad? His dad is not black.
God, this is the same shit as people calling Wentworth Miller black because he's like 1/8 negro at best. His father doesn't even look "black" either.
>asian countries NEVER cared about Star Wars
>China literally only saw the release of the OT for the first time early 2015
N*GGERS SUNK IT HAHAHA EPIC MEME THREAD
this post is correct, especially the shilling/peddling/product synergy part.
there is star wars coffee creamer for god sake
and as far as boyega goes, i don't think that he is as shoehorned in as much as ridley. all boys like star wars black boys included, the vast majority of girls never liked star wars until a couple of years ago.
Have you never seen a nigger in your life? Have you never seen a Samoan before? Are you literally retarded?
Newsflash retard, having dark skin doesn't make you 'black'.
Face it schlomo - it bombed in the entire Asian market. Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, China.....
when the prequels had no problem being #1 at the box office despite being trash. Fuck you and your worthless kind.
Based China letting the world know that SJW nonsense doesn't fly with them. Casting a woman and a black man as the protagonists was a mistake and while Disney made a profit, they aren't gaining those precious yuans.
He was falling victim to one of the classic blunders:
Never get involved in a box office war in Asia.
I've noticed this and I love it because it's hilarious.
My ex was Latina and she always filled out forms as 'white' unironically and without a second thought. Her email mean 'white girl' in Mexican slang.
Eh I don't mind it. I detest illegal immigration of any kind but overall they aren't a worthless entitled minority like some *other* group mostly is...
If they want to be white - great. That means they acknowledge superiority and will emulate it until they are at said level or are assimilated.
That's what they get for the forced BM/WF couple. East Asians hate niggers. They've had a fetish for da white man for a while but that'll fade away as the chinks get stronger and we get weaker.
They will be #1 in the long run. The chinks will. Therefore anime won't survive either since the chinks will want to finally get their revenge for the rape of Don'King.
>an ironic and serious shitpost in one, plus delusion, plus salty butthurt
Your post contributes nothing to the thread or /tv/. Leave forever if you're going to throw tantrums like that.
Avatar was at $1.7b at the same point in its release, and was making MUCH more money daily than TFA is now. In about a week, Avatar will have passed TFA in total gross at that point in its release.
Avatar continued to make significant cash for weeks. Looking at the spreadsheet I've got here, Avatar makes about $45m tomorrow worldwide, $52m on Saturday and then $45.5m on Sunday, for a total of around $143m WW in the SIXTH weekend of its release. For comparison, last week, during its FIFTH weekend of release, TFA made $73.4m worldwide.
Avatar is on a whole different level.
do you of often type a response to a fucking retard comment but then you realize "fuck this dude, I'll just let him be a fucking autist, he'll lose at life anyway" and then you just delete the comment you just spent time typing ?
She's not brown, she's from ancient Greece.
