New Azur Lane Swimsuit Illustrations Censored in China Once More

The edition of Azur Lane for those in mainland China has once again been censored, a move that will hardly shock fans considering the frequency at which they do such a thing; this time, the new swimsuits acquirable through the latest event had their seductive illustrations covered up.

Trump Is NOT Banning TikTok Because This Comedy Is TOO GOOD TO BAN!!

Okay, TikTok not getting banned has less to do with its comedy and more to do with politics and money - BUT I’M SO HAPPY THE APP IS HERE TO STAY SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO WATCH THESE CREATORS SUCCEED Not to start off on a totally dark note, but I wish Trump cared as much about the pandemic as he does about TikTok. So... Trump was able to force TikTok to divest to a U.S. company in 90 days with no real evidence that TikTok was actually a national security threat, but we’re 7 months and 200K ...

Cool Stuff: ‘The Godfather’ Life-Size Bust Will Make a Great Gift on the Day of Your Daughter’s Wedding

As pop culture fanatics, we’ve seen a lot of weird, expensive merchandise inspired by movies and TV shows. But some of the most perplexing collectibles, at least to me, are life-size busts featuring life-like sculpts of famous faces, and this new piece from DAMTOYS inspired by The Godfather is easily one of the most unnerving. Marlon Brando is immortalized in a tangible form as this life-size bust of his portrayal of Vito Corlone in The Godfather, complete with a fabric partial suit, synthetic ...

‘Mulan’ Remake Honest Trailer: Everything You Loved About the Original Disney Movie…Is Gone

If Disney was going to do one thing right, you’d think that it would be giving Mulan a worthy live-action remake that let’s an all-Asian cast shine in an epic retelling of one of China’s most famous legends. But nope! Instead, they take everything you loved about the original animated adventure, shove it to the side, and try to create a Chinese fantasy war drama with sparks of female empowerment, all in a package that’s tame enough for the whole family. Ugh. Can we just have Mushu back already?...

Box Office: ‘Tenet’ Hits $200 Million Globally Despite Low Domestic Numbers, ‘Mulan’ Falters in China

Tenet and Mulan are both serving as the bellwether by which the movie industry will figure out how it can move forward amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Warner Bros.’ Tenet as the marker for box office success in the U.S., and Disney’s Mulan as a test on the power of streaming. But a week after both of their stateside releases, Tenet and Mulan are facing major box office struggles — with Tenet hitting a wall domestically and Mulan faltering in China.

'Mulan' flopped in its box-office debut in China

"Mulan." Walt Disney Pictures Disney's live-action "Mulan" remake debuted in China over the weekend with a disappointing $23 million, even with most theaters in the region back open.

Exorcism Master – review

Director: Xiang Qiu-Liang Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers A recent Chinese film this is one that carries a central monster that looks a bit more zombie than kyonsi and, in truth, the subtitles I saw use the word zombie all the way through. However I was firmly of the opinion that it fell much more on the vampire side and there are several direct giveaways that I’ll point out in the review. Beyond this, we have a fantasy fare that could have withstood more character exploration as the good ...

Original Content podcast: Disney’s ‘Mulan’ is a decent remake overshadowed by controversy

Disney’s live-action remake of “Mulan” comes with some serious baggage. First, the film has drawn political controversy for its star’s statements in support of the action Hong Kong police against protestors, as well as the fact that “Mulan” was partly filmed in the Xinjiang region, where the Chinese government has held Muslim ethnic minorities in detention camps. And although it’s less weighty, it’s also hard to escape the business context: “Mulan” is one of the first big Hollywood blockbusters ...

Why do the Chinese hate Disney’s Mulan so much?

Disney’s Mulan comes out in China today. All indications are that this movie is going to be a huge flop in China. Now, Mulan isn’t getting great reviews in the US either (it’s currently at a 5.5 out of 10 on IMDb), but it’s doing even worse in China (currently at a 5.1 out of 10 on MTime, China’s IMDb). Some of the US reviewers are saying that the film suffered from trying to appease Chinese censors and Chinese audiences. But Chinese audiences are not at all impressed with the result...

China bans media coverage of Disney's 'Mulan' in attempt to hide Xinjiang mass abuse

The Chinese government has ordered major media outlets in China to not cover the release of Walt Disney's "Mulan." Authorities ordered the ban as controversy broke out over the film's links with China's Xinjiang region, where China is committing mass human rights abuses against the Uighur minority population and others, Reuters reports today. This is all a big bummer for Disney, which performed backflips to make the movie appeal to audiences in China. The $200 million production features Chin...

‘Mulan,’ once a sure thing, becomes a problem for Disney

By Christopher Palmeri, Shirley Zhao and Lucas Shaw | Bloomberg It was supposed to be another $1 billion blockbuster for Walt Disney Co. — a live-action remake of a 1998 animated hit featuring an all-star Asian cast, breathtaking cinematography and plenty of martial arts. Instead, the new “Mulan” is proving to be a political hot potato, reflecting the U.S.’s fraying ties with China, and the choices companies face when operating in the highly politicized, but lucrative environment that is modern-...

Disney Criticized for ‘Mulan’ Credits Thanking Chinese Propaganda Departments Linked to Detention Camps, Underreporting COVID-19 Cases

When Disney first announced its remake of Mulan, Asian-American audiences who grew up on the 1998 original only had one major concern: no whitewashing. But cut to five years later, following the unexpected release of the Niki Caro-directed film on Disney+, and there are larger, more insidious sociopolitical concerns at work in Disney’s live-action Mulan remake. It’s just one of the many major criticisms over serious issues that Disney is fielding this week, including labor concerns over coronav...

‘Tenet’ Scores $20 Million at U.S. Box Office, While Disney+ Downloads Spike With ‘Mulan’ Release

Warner Bros.’ Tenet and Disney’s Mulan have been hand-in-hand for most of the summer — they were both being primed to be the first big blockbusters that would reopen movie theaters amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, they were both delayed three times each, they were both major tentpoles starring a POC lead. But the studios ended up going in very different directions as August neared and the pandemic’s end was nowhere in sight. Warner Bros. decided to release Tenet overseas first before o...

"Disney has thanked four propaganda departments and a public security bureau in Xinjiang, a region in northwest China that is the site of one of the world’s worst human rights abuses happening today."

"More than a million Muslims in Xinjiang, mostly of the Uighur minority, have been imprisoned in concentration camps.... Disney... worked with regions where genocide is occurring, and thanked government departments that are helping to carry it out....  Disney executives had thought that the original 'Mulan' would please both the Chinese government and Chinese filmgoers. But because Disney had distributed 'Kundun' (1997), a film glorifying the Dalai Lama, Beijing restricted the studio’s ability t...

Tzi Ma on Being the Go-To Onscreen Asian Father, What ‘Mulan’ Means for the Asian-American Community [Interview]

Tzi Ma has become the go-to dad in countless Asian-led movies. From The Farewell to Tigertail, culminating in this year’s highly anticipated Disney remake of Mulan, there’s a warmth and world-weariness that the Hong Kong-born actor brings to films that are beginning to evolve audiences’ understanding and exposure to Asian-American culture. But despite that, Ma is not a dad himself, though he assures that as an uncle of many nieces and nephews, he’s changed many a diaper. “I have been able to do...

‘Mulan’ Review: A Disney Live-Action Remake Kind of Worth Fighting For

What justifies a live-action remake of a beloved classic? Is it better technology? A new chance at better cultural representation? Or is it really just a cash grab aimed at mining the audience’s nostalgia for a childhood staple? For Disney and its recent string of uninspired live-action remakes of its animated hits, it’s usually the latter, with the first two being rolled out as typical excuses. But Niki Caro‘s Mulan promised something different: a new vision of the beloved 1998 animated film t...
