    Default Why Star Wars Failed In China


    George Lucas' space opera is a cornerstone of the modern film industry and a cultural phenomenon around the globe. The 10 films in the "Star Wars" franchise have grossed more than $4.5 billion domestically since 1977. Outside the U.S., it's garnered more than $4.6 billion. But there is one place that "Star Wars" hasn't had the same success China.

    The Chinese are only interested in movies with Chinese people or big stupid mindless monster/robot movies.

    I've recently watched The Wandering Earth, a 2019 Chinese science fiction film. According to Wikipedia it was huge box office success in China. It became China's second highest-grossing film of all time.
    The Wandering Earth IMO is a piece of shit. A stereotypical, pompous, overdramatized and laughable movie.

    But I've always thought that Star Wars is a childish movie. If you want to watch a good scifi movie I sugest you try A Space Odissey.

    Not to mention all Chinese movies about kung fu, with absurd special effects, like flying people and similar.
