Chinese Box Office

China is such a large market that they can produce blockbusters that are hardly shown in the rest of the world. There are 4 Chinese movies, so far in 2018, that has performed better than the first foreign movie on the list (Avengers: Infinity War). 2 of them looks particularly interesting.

«Hello Mr. Billionaire» is based on the book «Brewster’s Millions» by George Barr McCutcheon. This book has been made into a Hollywood movie before with Richard Pryor and John Candy in the lead roles and several times before that as well.

Dying to Survive (original title: Wo bu shi yao shen) has a score of 8.2 of 10 on IMDb and the story seems interesting. «A story on how a small drug store owner became the exclusive selling agent of a cheap Indian generic drug against Chronic Granulocytic Leukemia in China.»

Have you seen any Chinese movies this year? Please write about it in the comments-section below!

This is Bill and Ted from «Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure» and «Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey». The dude on the right is Keanu Reeves. You know him, right? The dude on the left is Alex Winter. He’s an occasional actor, has starred in «Grand Piano» with John Cusack and Elijah Wood in 2013. He starred in an episode of Bones. But he is mainly a director. He made a documentary about Napster, called Downloaded. He’s directed various TV episodes. That seems to be his bread and butter. He directed «Smosh: The Movie» (dear god, why? WHY?). But his latest project is called «Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa?»
