Michael Mann's "Untitled" cyberthriller - over 100m in China Club

Recommended Posts

Michael Mann's current project stars Chris Hemsworth and Leehom Wang as an American hacker and Chinese military officer who team up to take out a hacker network.

 

It's due to be released in the US in January 2015. No release date yet for China (as far as I know).

 

With the huge explosion of the Chinese market, and the huge popularity of Wang in China, I think this can buck the trend and hit 100m there, even though it's not your typical 3D/sci-fi/fantasy tentpole.

 

Who's with me?

I think I'm in. At the very least it should do respectable numbers in China given Wang's involvement with the film.

Admittedly I know very little about the nuances of the Chinese market (aside from reading the International Numbers threads), so I have no idea whether this target is absurdly impossible or absurdly easy.

Very hard. China has been ignoring a lot of major Hollywood releases lately. They especially don't take kind to Hollywood making movies based in their own country (not that Cypher has that problem).

Leehom Wang is still big in China? I'm so out of loop with my Asian entertainment news these days.

'True Believers' sounds too Bieberish for me. Out.

Was archiving topics and found this. Tele actually made a club for Blackhat.
