Yes, it's going early in a lot of healthy markets. The hope is other markets will recover by June.

2M looks pretty tough for DS again, more 1.8-1.9 is my guess. Incredible legs still, should pass Nobody and Book of Fish soon to start in the top 3 for a bit longer.   
 

GvK at 667k after about 74k week, with more competition incoming tomorrow and Friday I guess it will miss 750.

Same as in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore - the comments are not the same, but the reactions are mostly negative as well.

The social media locally straight up calling Shang Chi as the ugliest superhero and somehow the comment receive a lot of likes. (Feel so sorry for the actor) . Many think why hollywood would rather cast an uncle than picking someone more handsome or charismatic. Most of the comment agree that the white superhero among MCU are far more attractive than this Asian superhero. 

 

I must say  there is some discrepancies in Aesthetic preferences for eastern and western.

As an Asian, I can say there are a lot of handsome Asian (Chinese) dudes.. like Ludi Lin, Ross Butler. Older guys we have Andy Lau, Donnie Yen, Aaron Kwok.

But Marvel went with Simu Liu... i mean, i get where the criticism comes from.

I think as Asians; where we finally get a superhero that supposed here to represent us; we did not expect the stereotypical small eyes, somewhat round nose "uncle" to represent us. I mean the same criticism about looks can be seen as top comments on various Marvel Asian countries FB page.

 

Are you an Asian by an chance? If you are not; i don't expect you to understand.. so no fault on you. Similar the higher ups in Disney and Marvel probably don't get it as well.

As an Asian,  a Chinese decedent, Simu does look like some 2nd/3rd tier star to me.

This.. Immediately gave alot of people.. a very low budget / TV series type of vibe.

 

I mean some things are not easily put into words; but this is the feeling I get and also from the many many comments I read in Mandarin in Chinese speaking countries through Marvel's various FB page.

Someone like teen lead in Detective Chinatown, could have looked better I guess. He does look cute. Again speaking from outsider but neighbor perspective.

 

That said, the guy playing younger Shang Chi looked nice.

Yes. Liu Haoran; that is what Chinese people regard as good looking. Plus he is Chinese while Simu Liu is considered ABC and a foreigner / outsider by the Chinese netizens.
