  • Here's a wsj review of a new Christian Bale, Chinese movie: http://blogs.wsj.com/chinarealtime/2011/12/12/china-zhang-yimou-flowers-of-war-premiers-in-beijing-sumptuous-but-selectively-nuanced/

    <<Mr. Zhang’s film, which jumps nimbly between English, the Nanjing dialect of Chinese, and occasional barks of Japanese, clearly attempts to appeal to global audiences and is part of a global push from China to create a homegrown film industry that can rival Hollywood’s.

    China’s film industry , ranking ninth in international box-office revenues, generated ticket sales totaling 10.17 billion yuan (roughly $1.5 billion) in 2010, up from 6.2 billion yuan in 2009. The U.S. topped the global market at $9.87 billion.

    China wants to create production and distribution companies big enough to compete with U.S. film giants like Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures. The government believes that if China becomes a major player in the global film industry it will help to export the country’s culture and soften its image overseas.

    With a budget nearing $100 million, “Flowers of War” is the most expensive Chinese movie ever made.>>

    For emphasis, I repeat: <<China wants to create production and distribution companies big enough to compete with U.S. film giants like Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures>>

    This is where we are headed folks! Fasten your seatbelts and hang on tight!!!
