China's homegrown hit films struggle overseas

In this Monday, March 18, 2013 photo, Xu Zheng, Chinese actor and director of the Chinese movie "Lost in Thailand" listens during an interview in Hong Kong. Wacky road comedy "Lost in Thailand" found surprising box-office records in China, outpacing even global leader "Avatar," but the paltry $57,000 it earned in the U.S. is the latest sign of the country's struggles to meet its goal of rivaling Hollywood. One reason for the difficulty may lie behind its own success: Movies do so well at home, filmmakers don't worry about their potential abroad. (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)
