China Just Can’t Handle Doing Hollywood. Most Expensive Chinese Movie Bombed Hard

NEWSER – The movie is called Asura, and it’s seen as the first attempt by China’s burgeoning film industry to put out a genuine Hollywood-style blockbuster. One problem: The $110 million movie did so poorly in its weekend debut—it pulled in a mere $7.1 million—that producers yanked it from all theaters Sunday night, reports the Hollywood Reporter. “Deepest apologies to viewers who did not get a chance to watch the film, as well as to all the Chinese and international participants who were involved in its production over the past six years,” says a statement from the producers, per the Guardian. The film was intended to be the first in a franchise based on Buddhist mythology, sort of like China’s own version of Lord of the Rings, as THR puts it.

The movie even stars Lei Wu, described by virtually every site covering the flop as a “teenage heartthrob.” So what happened? Unusually strong competition didn’t help, notes the South China Morning Post, but reviews were generally bad across the board. The producers, however, allege that saboteurs deliberately tanked the movie by flooding review sites with one-star slams. Whatever the reason, movie-watchers might get another chance to see the film down the road. “We plan to make some changes to the film and release it again,” a rep from lead producer Zhenjian Film told one Chinese news outlet. (Stanley Kubrick reportedly explained the enigmatic ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey.)

 

One time my mom, who is a chinese immigrant, came home and I was watching Captain America Civil War on Netflix. She was blown away by the quality in the visuals alone. No idea about the story line and she was blown away. The CGI on this shit looks like it was in the 2000s still. Soon Asia might catch up to the quality of cinema in america but it is not this day, not hte past 6 years apparently, and not when ever they decide to change this movie, and re-release it again as if nothing ever happened. Which is a wild move alone.

I’m Already Down On Aquaman Based Off Of A 1 Second Clip From The Trailer

Aquaman seems to be all the rage at Comic Con. I’m not gonna lie, I was excited to see the trailer. Not that I’m all really hyped to see the movie or anything, but I wanted to see how the next new DC movie was gonna hype everyone up and boy did it work. Nerds crying saying this is the best DC Movie. Now I don’t watch Game of Thrones, just never got into it, I understand I’m in the minority of that. Still, a strong part of me thinks they just like Aquaman because it has already one character from a pretty nerdy culture in GoT to play another nerdy character in Aquaman. And I don’t mean Nerd in a bad way or anything but facts are facts, people geek out over both those things. Anywho, I gave the trailer a solid couple of watches. It looks like a movie trailer. Give a bit of the good guys story, shows a bit of the bad guy yada yada yada. The CGI looks okay but they still have time to work on things. But then there was this one scene that I just couldn’t get over.

That’s it right there. I assume everyone on this green earth that has a TV and cable has seen at least one shark week segment in their life. I also assume everyone has at least wondered what they would do with their life had they been in a shark attack scenario. Well to me I marry those two thoughts together quite often and what history/culture/science has told me is if I’m ever in a scenario where a sharks bearing down on me, If I’m forced to confront it, I should channel all my focus onto punching it in the nose. Shark scientist tell us that there’s a cluster of nerves in the sharks nose so it would be the equivalent of like the strongest of sack taps to a shark when you hit them in the nose. Which brings me to my point. Would you ever ram your dick into a glass wall at full force to try to intimidate a couple of youths? Absolutely not. Why on earth would a Shark ram its nose into a glass wall when that would be the equal. Not to mention its troubling if this scene were to happen in real life and i find out that that shark isn’t fazed one bit by ramming its nose into the glass like that. The guy should be rolling around in the water as if its balls have exploded and should be feeling a pain like no other after a hit like that. Whatever, it is what it is. DC fans will storm the theater saying its better than Marvel movies. It’ll make a hundreds of millions probably and the debate will roll on forever not that DC has made a marginally better movie than its previous track record. But let it be known here at least. I will acknowledge the absence of science and logic in this scene.

I also can’t picture him being named Arthur.

P.s.- I will still watch the movie

P.s.s.- I only saw like the first 3 episode of Game of Thrones But I remember Drago raping khalisi. That’s the character people are falling in love with right now/for the past few years. A rapist.

P.s.s.s.- I never finished Game of Thrones so no one @ me about Game of Thrones or regarding the rape committer Drago.

Mother Nature Might Just Hate If You If You Get Speared By The Winds

(CNN) — Heavy winds uprooted several beach umbrellas along the Jersey Shore on Monday, and a British tourist was impaled by one of the aluminum stakes.

Margaret Reynolds, who was visiting from London, was basking on the beach when the stake of a flying umbrella went through her ankle, according to Seaside Heights, New Jersey, Police Detective Steven Korman.

First responders had to use bolt cutters to split the rod on-site so she could be transported to the hospital.

Reynolds was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center for treatment and has been discharged.

“It was a beautiful day and a gust of wind blew the umbrella,” Reynolds said in a statement from the hospital. “It was just an accident.”

Sometimes when I, as a Floridian, have to go through things like Hurricanes I think to my self this is probably just the way we find a natural balance in the world. Humans come in all hot planting their feet down claiming land and next thing you know water comes down from the heavens and fucks up everything. Its a sad state of affairs sometimes but its what we have to deal with living on this here green earth. The thing is though, those are mass incidents that affect hundreds with no real bias. We have hurricanes here, tsunamis in the pacific, earthquakes in the mid-west. All of those mess up peoples lives at random. Then we get times like this story right here. I picture there was some sort of butterfly effect that left this british tourist impaled onto the beaches of the Jersey shore. Probably was having a nice vacation, summer in the states and whatnot. It was most likely an accident but probably tossed a plastic water bottle out quickly not making its way fully into the recycling bin and just left there on the floor knowing it will never decompose. Its a simple mistake, she was in a rush to get to a nice spot at the beach when it hasn’t become completely crowded. She thinks nothing of it, letting the sun tan her most likely very pale British self. Its a wonderful mix of sun and breeze until it suddenly she gets a feeling down by her ankles. Did a casual beach goer trip over her foot by chance? It’s a popular summer vacation destination so that is a possibility. She looks up and takes the sun glasses off and that’s when she sees it. A MASSIVE beach umbrella Impaled into her ankles that makes the crucifixion of Jesus Christ look like a small piece of shrapnel in his foot. That might just be MILF Nature sending you a subtle message saying please reduce, reuse, and recycle.

It was probably just a random accident.
