Yeah, I didn't even consider the athletic shoe angle.

No wonder the NBA commissioner Silver is basically cowering at China's feet now.

CHina is not making the right PR moves at all imo

Basically americans get the perception that CHINA is restricting their freedom of speech!

I heard a big reason for the push of 'superhero' movies the last decade or so is the 'overseas market'. Little dialogue, uncontroversial content. Easy to translate and unlikely to offend.

This has become huge now.

I really liked the South Park episode that was banned in China, it made some great points. Also liked Trey Parker telling the Chinese government what he thought of them, shows some true integrity in an industry that is kissing China's ass so they can sell their movies and TV shows there.

LeBron James has copped a huge backlash over siding with the Communist Government over the Hong Kong protesters. It's becoming entertaining to watch it unfold.

And now they are adding in special additional contents for the Chinese market. The recent Avengers movie reportedly had special footage that included some Chinese actors and some random scenes which included China in the story.

Apparently this is also one reason for the PC shit and themes that we are seeing in movies lately. A lot of it is to make the movie more appealing to the Chinese censors.





I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.
