USA A MINOR MARKET FOR SO-CALLED "RACIST" MOVIE

Kike and kiked critics condemned The Great Wall as "racist", and "anti-Chinese", and "a whitewash" – because it stars a White man – Matt Damon, a well-known SJW, including as an "anti-racism" campaigner. The "racist" ("anti-Chinese") movie is a massive hit in China.

Weekend Box Office: Matt Damon's 'The Great Wall' Crumbles With $21M U.S. Debut

[The Kike's] Hollywood Reporter, Feb 17/2017

Acclaimed Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon, bombed in its U.S. debut over the long Presidents Day weekend with an estimated $21 million from 3,325 theaters, including a three-day tally of $18.1 million. That's a poor start considering the movie's $150 million production budget.

Legendary Pictures teamed with Universal in making the The Great Wall. The monster movie, skewered by critics and earning a mediocre B CinemaScore from audiences, is billed as the first English-language production shot entirely in China.

Great Wall has done giant-sized business in China, where it has earned $171 million. And it has taken in another $73.6 million in other foreign markets for an international total of $244.6 million.

The pic's story centers on European mercenaries searching for black powder who become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures. Damon stars along with Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.

"The U.S. is not the driving market and just one part of an overall strategy," said Universal president of domestic distribution Nick Carpou. "The movie did huge business and continues to open in other international numbers. It just opened No. 1 in Russia. Zhang Yimou is an extraordinary action director."



al-Guardian:

"Asian Americans decry 'whitewashed' Great Wall film starring Matt Damon – Critics say forthcoming film The Great Wall is just the latest example of Hollywood putting a white person in a role that should go to a person of color"
