No FOMO in China.
Prior to The Super Mario Bros. Movie, the highest-grossing video game film of all time was…Warcraft, and more than half of its total gross was China, compared to just 2% of Mario's.
18.5% of the world's population. $21.4 million.
At a time when Asian film and television is thriving internationally, I'm fascinated by China's cultural solipsism.
Chinese film and television has little to no profile outside of China. China is seemingly content just making entertainment for itself.
And its own films outperform many worldwide releases!
