    Is China a big source of box office income?

    There are very few US movies allowed into mainland China, I think the total limit is 5-6 a year. By dubbing the films, they could make sure the government controlled the content as well

    Good for them to show it in OSL.

    It seems most people here are hostile towards China. I will not post any China related news here any more. Sorry for what I did.

    Feng:

    I don't see anything to indicate hostility towards China. Perhaps we do not understand the country because of the radical differences of our respective traditional cultures and of our political systems.

    I, for one, looked at this particular thread because I'm interested in things Chinese, and I wanted to see what was posted here. I was a little disappointed to see that the original post was deleted, and even more disappointed to see that you don't intend to post China-related info in the future.

    Hopefully, you will reconsider. Open discourse between our cultures is the best hope for our reaching an understanding and peace and lasting friendship with one another.

    I agree with Richard: I don't understand what the problem is. No one indicated any "hostility".

    Please share with us how the film was received.

    I guess that means some of you will be booking a ticket so that the international box office total for the movie will be higher.

    I'm anything but hostile toward China. I was just stating what usually happens

    Feng - I too am interested in all things Chinese. I didn't see anything hostile in the first two responses. One was a legitimate question and the other was just stating the facts.

    Please reconsider and feel free to post any and all China news you may have. I'm interested and have no hostility.

    Fend, you got me at a loss here. I too didn't see anything "hostile" in this thread. If anything, it's praise, such as

    The only think I can think is that Feng took this statement:
