    In other news Shang-Chi looks like it won't get a China release as old comments by Simu Liu that put the country in a negative light resurfaced. I fear this might bury its chances of making profit. For all the hype about its domestic run people ignore that Shang-Chi isn't doing so well in the rest of the world.
    I wonder if, despite the great domestic, this'll sink a sequel. That'd suck, but can't underestimate the importance of China to Hollywood these days.

    Less, depending on what was released in a given week.

    I think Marvel doesn't look only at the numbers to decide if a movie gets a sequel. I mean the first Ant-Man movie made rather disappointing numbers compared to the other MCU films and the character still got two more movies greenlit. It looks as if they clearly have big plans for the character and with the good reception I'd be surprised if Shang-Chi didn't get a sequel regardless of the final box office. Marvel will also take into account that it's hard for any solo movie to make big numbers in the current climate.

    As for China, that seems to be a problem for whole Marvel, not just Shang-Chi as Black Widow also didn't get released there and Eternals likely won't, too.

How we go on when our hearts break. Hearts always break and so we bend with our hearts. And we sway. But in the end what matters is that we loved... and lived.

    So Christopher Nolan's next movie about J. Robert Oppenheimer will be produced and distributed by Universal Pictures, not by his longtime studio Warner. It's pretty clear that Warner's decision to go day and date on HBO Max with all their 2021 movies played a big part in Nolan's decision to leave his regular studio.

    Disney with the Johansson lawsuit, Warner losing its high-profile director, one can say the day and date decisions are beginning to backfire.

    It's just common sense. There were always going to be other outlets for top creative talent to go to instead of being beholden to Disney and WB. That the latter didn't understand this just boggles the mind.

    Tom Hanks gives his opinion on the future of theatrical movies versus streaming. Pretty logical in my opinion.

    Starts at just after the 8 minute mark and goes about six minutes, though the whole interview is good.
    Power with Girl is better.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    It was a mind boggling decision.

    I think Nolan has moved to Universal which isn't good news for Warners.

    Will Oppenheimer be moving through time?

    Well, my friend talked me into it. I went to the theater today and saw Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. There were only 8 people in the theater and I remained fully masked but I was there. Not planning on making it a regular thing but at least I went this time.

    Yea it was an interesting interview. Tom always seems to have a lot of common sense.
