I read somewhere that Avatar was so popular the government took it out of lots of cinemas and replaced it with some locally made film.

rich45:

yup, they pulled all the 3D prints to make room for the Confucius movie. but Avatar still made more money with only 2D prints. they learned their lesson thou, this year they delayed transformers 3 and harry potter a whole two moths to make sure the founding of the communist party was a hit. i remember reading an article about it. how many places got tickets in bulk and gave the day off tho their workers to go see it. but most dint bother so the cinema was sold out. but empty

Garfield 2 and Transformers 2 were the two top grossers last time I checked, though that was a while ago. Of course, not much foreign makes it to the theatres. I suspect more American movies are watched on DVD and youku.

In general, it seems teen comedies, action movies and dramas do the best, which makes sense as those genres tend to be broad enough that cultural differences don't get in the way. Just like Kung fu, later-day Stephen Chow and weepy, heavily-visual art films tend to cross over more the other way.

I thought Titanic was super popular all over Asia? I know it's old, but a lot of people seem to know that one.

A: They're saying you should be in China already because entering China i
A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
