I doubt both won't be released in China 

 

Especially Eternals, they will ask Chloe to apologize and clarify her comments and that's it.

 

Shang Chi i also think it will be released, but i can see this one being rejected like Mulan.

 

Once again, I will say... She does not need to "apologize" for *anything.*

 

Plus, at her Oscars acceptance speech, Zhao made a particularly nice Chinese heritage reference again to her childhood, respectful enough...and possibly very canny.  But of course relatively no one watched the Oscars in the U.S. ... and it wasn't broadcast in China.

 

What's particularly interesting to me in Variety's recent report is the talk that *Tony Leung* could possibly be somewhat blacklisted!

I agreed she shouldn´t have to apologize because she didn´t say anything wrong.

 

But since for China this is considered wrong, i bet Disney will ask her to clarify and apologize for her comments simply to avoid drama for Eternals release. If she doesn´t i think the movie will still be released but could face some controversy, they don´t need this.

 

Especially because for Shang Chi the whole thing does seems way more complex.

"Streaming 45 days after theaters" is on the vague side of things since they don't clarify whether that means D+ or PVOD. Guessing PVOD and then D+ around Christmas (since all their other theatricals before this opens will already be on there the same day as theaters).

Getting the feeling that studios really are looking to abandon exhibition. 

And here I was hoping to see a good F4 movie on imax theatre in 3D that makes atleast 500M worldwide.

To be honest, lots of netizens already said they will boycott him when it was announced he will play Fu Manchu / Mandarin - or now renamed as Wenwu.

 

The truth is that it does not affect him that much, he has not had a decent film for the last 10 years or so to be honest; and has not been a big box office draw in China. His wife Carina Lau picks his films for him and they are known not to be very particular about scripts; there is a joke that I see among Netizens that says Tony Leung owes people money hence have to take up all the crappy roles and bad films to pay off his debts. Lol. 

 

Please check out the ratings / reviews of one of his newest film Europe Raiders or any of his recent films… 

Many people here still lives in the days where he was in The Mood for Love and Infernal Affairs, those were more than a decade old…

Seem like 45 days is the new standard for theatrical window. I am hoping something like 45 days in theater (if longer the better), 30 days on PVOD and streaming afterward.

the fact that the government trying to censor this because the lead actors are not pretty enough.. lol

 

but seems like problem is more about Eternals and this got caught in bad timing and used as hostage.

Yes, I had an impression of most of this, already.  I know he left his longtime management a couple years, back, Wong Kar-wai's company, that was a big move.  I figured the Hong Kong market had dried up, but I also figured he and other "classic" HK stars were now making money in China or "Pan-Asian" markets... the question is, then, someone's making money somewhere, if he keeps getting cast, even if the movies aren't making much money...  

 

Actually, ITMFL and Infernal Affairs are 20 years old!!  Time flies...

So does the 45 day window thing mean that after it’s been playing in theaters for 45 days, that it will then be released on Disneyplus and Blu-ray ?

Not necessarily.  Specific post-theatrical plans for this title haven't been announced, yet.  Disney seems to be taking their films on a case-by-case basis.
