"Black Panther" a Historic Bomb in China

PK Note: Back to normal tomorrow. 

The Chinese know #WakandaIsntReal. 

As the Chinese colonize Africa - where once the white man dominated before surrendering (without shots fired) to the cry of 'racist' - they fail to fall under the spell so many whites in the ruins of western civilization have to the siren song of guilt for their greatness.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) dominates in China, but not so with Black Panther


Marvel’s first black superhero film Black Panther made a strong debut in China, taking in more than $63 million this weekend and helping it cross the billion-dollar mark globally. And while the film filled seats in China, it didn’t exactly bring in rave reviews from Chinese audiences—in fact, online reviews hint at subtle racism and discomfort with the all-black cast. 
Set in Wakanda, a fictional country in East Africa that’s hidden from the outside world, the movie portrayed a romanticized version of Africa that had never been touched by the white man. Led by a cast of black actors and actresses, the film presented how the king of the country, T’Challa, used his intelligence, ancestral knowledge, and access to advance technologies to become the superhero Black Panther. 
But the movie—which comes as a timely portrayal and celebration of blackness half a century after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination—is hardly resonating with Chinese audiences. On Douban, China’s IMDb-esque platform, the film holds a 6.8 rating out of 10 (link in Chinese)—almost half of science-fiction and action movies rated by Douban users have a better score. Outside of China, Black Panther is on track to become the highest-rated superhero movie, according to Rotten Tomatoes; 97% of reviews from critics have been positive. 
Some moviegoers disliked Black Panther because they felt Marvel was trying too hard to be politically correct (link in Chinese). While many reviewers on Douban stopped short of leaving overtly racist comments about the film, many discussed their discomfort of being surrounded by so much blackness. 
“Maybe the Chinese are still not used to a film full of black people,” wrote one reviewer on Douban (link in Chinese). The commenter said he had to pinch himself more than 10 times to stay awake during the movie because “Black Panther is black, all the major characters are black, a lot of scenes are black, the car-chasing scene is black—the blackness has really made me drowsy.” 
Another reviewer who came into the theater late made a similar observation: “When I entered the theater, a bunch of black people was fighting in the night… I’ve never been in a theater so dark that I couldn’t find my seat.” 
Someone else said the experience was worse in 3D (link in Chinese): “The film is filled with black actors and actresses. Also, because the film’s colors are a bit dark, it’s nearly a torture for the eyes to watch the film’s 3D version in the theater.”
As expected, Black Panther took a massive dive on its second Friday in China. The MCU blockbuster opened with a solid $22 million opening day but was thwarted by poor word of mouth even with a sky-high $67m Fri-Sun debut. As such, that the film dropped 88% on its second Friday ($2.7m), a near-record (and certainly a record drop for an opening of this scale), shouldn’t be a shock. The picture has still earned $86.7m in eight days in China.
It also shouldn’t be taken as any judgment against the film or conversely against Chinese audiences. If the flick had bombed or underperformed elsewhere, then there might be an issue. However, Black Panther will cross $600 million domestic and should flirt with $1.2 billion worldwide by Sunday. Moreover, there is no law requiring China to embrace the same stuff we embrace, especially when it arguably deals with explicitly American social mores or American political strains.
As western civilization capitulates to blackness, the Chinese ensure their purported century will be anything but dark.

The Chinese have no illusions about the "potential" of would-be Wakandans.

Did anyone sane ever expect it would be otherwise? 不要笑死人了! Don't make someone laugh to death!

China definitely knows Wakana isn't real, so Wakana money will not be accepted.

T’Challa, used his intelligence, ancestral knowledge, and access to advance technologies I'm DYING here 哈哈!

“Maybe the Chinese are still not used to a film full of black people,” "still not", yup, they are coming to get the Asians now. A few months ago the TTC subway was plastered with posters of The Runaways, featuring a black male with a asian girl next to him - I remember reading the comics once that the asian girl's role was originally white - while this might be another example of white erasure I think they are also going to start pushing BM/AF now. A while ago I was watching indie horror films when suddenly there was an asian woman holding hands with a black man, I stopped the film, looked up the director, and I'm so not surprised it's the usual suspect.

An Anti-Racism Law has been passed in Hong Kong around ten years ago. Nowhere is truly safe.

Quick! Send some university professors, media members, and SJWs to China to admonish them for being "racist". Oh right, they couldn't care less.

And this is exactly what I expected. Bald-headed black women don't turn many heads among the Chinese. And prancing around like a peacock in a self-important manner as only Africans can do to draw attention to yourself doesn't go over very well either.

The American elite - political, media, ivy league and hollyweird - is partly responsible for the africanization of the world. Our biggest export is our repulsive movies and TV programs. Just about all of this filth portrays negoes as highly efficient workers and harmless buddies. When I was employed by the federal government, that was fartherest from the truth; the black females were some of the lowest form of rubbish on the earth.

Anyway, after consuming this garbage, those places with few Africans start to clamor for these "hip" and "cool" people. This propaganda works! Look at the sad reality of Europe with it's black migrants. Our vile elite did a number on them.

Once again, we have to toss hollyweird's filth and negro sportsball.

Apparently those in the chinese audience who expressed discomfort are not aware of how movies from their country are perceived outside of China. Africa for one has embraced chinese movies with 100% chinese cast long ago before they even become cult movies in Europe and the Americas. Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li and many other are cultural icons all over Africa. Some chinese should really learn to embrace the diversity this planet has to offer.

"It also shouldn´t be taken as any (sic!) judgment against the film or conversely against Chinese audiences (well, thanks a lot)."

I think "aghast" and "feeling hoodwinked" (seems I can´t go ten words without a pun ;b) are the terms you were looking for. When in doubt it´s never the audience, stupid.

"If the flick had bombed or underperformed elsewhere, then there might be an issue."

Oh, YEAH?! The box office is the last bastion of liberty or, as Yogi Berra put it,"if people don´t want to come to the ball game, you can´t stop them".
-Then again that was in the bad old days and I see it is being actively worked on.

They are going to find that their new Chinese overlords are a helluva lot less humane than the white colonists. But what the hell. They deserve each other.

In reality it's not like people in the west really are buying negroes either. All these (((mysterious ticket sales))) and virtue signaling aside, at the end of the day when blacks move in, whites move out. At some basic instinctual level even (and probably especially) the most rabid proponents of black Africans know the score and don't want anything to do with their pets.

Sadly the money for this propaganda machine will never dry up until we ban fractional reserve lending and abolish the (((central bank))), but as they say, familiarity breeds contempt and negroes, being particularly contemptible creatures, are wearing out their welcome more and more by the day. (((They))) have been shoving these animals down our throats for 100 years and I think more and more people are getting a tummy-ache.

Most of the success of Black Panther comes from all the hype it received. It will undoubtedly get many awards because it was a "black" movie. If it doesn't get best movie award, that will be considered racist which is the greatest sin of the left.

The idea of the movie is to say this is what black people could have done if whites did not come into the picture, but they don't prove their point by showing one successful black country in our day. Blacks continue to fail because they have lower intellectual abilities than all other races. This is not racism, but fact.

I suppose the movie is an average action movie. I have not seen it, but I am curious at all the brouhaha over it. I probably will watch it when it comes on TV. I would not pay extra money to see it.

As for the Chinese: they don't have to bow at the image of the negro god.

Don't forget, in much of Asia race really is important. We are talking about people who have hated each other passionately for some time. No matter what the Koreams, Chinese and Japanese think of each other, they'd rather mate with their most hated Asian enemies than any African.

Within 100 years the native population of Africa will have had more than its fair share of depopulation via bioterror.

If there is hardly anyone around to fight against you it is easier to make Africa a new Chinese continent able to feed their home country and providing it with much, much more than the largely bad lands of China.

I lived in Asia (Tokyo, Bangkok and Hong Kong)for around 13 years in the 60's and 70's. Blacks were generally considered to be downright ugly by most of the Asians I knew. They were curiosities at best. I asked a Japanese girl I knew what she thought of blacks and she had a look on her face as if she'd just bitten into a lemon and said, "Oh! Too dirty!" Others thought of blacks as "strong but not smart." Strong but ugly and dumb would pretty much sum up their opinions of blacks. So, I can't imagine that a movie portraying them as super advanced and intelligent would be considered even remotely believable. More likely, it would be looked upon like a children's movie about talking turtles from a sewer who had human intelligence and super powers. Thus, any black adults parading around pretending that Wakanda could be real would probably be seen as a comical figure~ like a child believing in talking turtles and insisting that they were real.

Black Panther is propaganda, and propaganda is not allowed to fail. At least, you aren't allowed to KNOW that it failed.

The studio could have lost money, and maybe they did, but all your going to hear about is "record breaking success". Lets not forget who runs (((Hollywood))).

By the way the left were falling all over themselves to sing its praises, and pounced on anyone who dared say they didn't like it, I`d say the box office numbers they`re touting are complete fantasy.

These few reviews out of China are the heavily filtered ones. Your average Chinese comments on the film would probably make Paul Kersey blush.

Stay alert, stay alive.

I am sure the Chinese looked at this movie exactly the way it IS:

A comic book.

Alga158 said...

From what I can make out, the Chinese seem to be careful not to colonize Africa in the traditional sense, so as not to end up taking on the White Man’s Burden. Based on sources such as Empire of Dust they are being smart enough to not attempt to govern, administer, occupy, proselytize, civilize or otherwise try to improve the people. They are putting in just the amount of infrastructure they need to extract the vast resources they need. It appears that they aren’t even bringing in troops for security but relying on payoffs to the leaders who in turn make sure the golden goose isn’t disturbed.
The Chinese were starting to get infected at home by reverse colonialism ala the European countries, with Africans emigrating to China, but it appears they saw the problem and corrected it. Latest news shows handwringing over the fact that the African enclaves in China that were burgeoning are now being cleaned out and the immigrants sents home.

Wait? You support the opinions of kids not yet eligible to vote who clearly don’t understand the concept of the Bill of Rights, let alone recognize the irony of their free speech rights as they demand the curtail of 2nd Amendment Rights of others. A couple months ago this brain trust generation were filming one another eating tide pods, now they demand an audience for gun confiscation, bans, and more laws above the existing that aren’t enforced.
One of these little victims actually said that because they were shot at, they alone should have the floor for debate, even stating that anyone who has been shot at by an AR-15 wouldn’t support private ownership. These ignorant f-tards probably don’t have awareness of the THOUSANDS of Vets who’ve seen combat and understand that the best defense against an armed bad guy is experience and a properly maintained firearm of their own.

A friend of a friend family moved to Africa, one of the sub-Saharan countries, to do advanced level management work. It was extremely lucrative, included a house, private car, and security.
Here’s the catch...it was dangerous. The wife couldn’t go out alone, the kids could only play with the kids from the other American or British families, they had a person that would go buy their food. They were prisoners. They Husband was a vet here, many years, applied to get a pistol permit and was declined. They left in under a year. Funny, they were multicultural and very “open” before and now they are direct and specific, right up to the point of outward racism, that they have NO time for blacks. Anywhere.

I saw a story on money being collected so kids can see Black Panther. It featured the "Ellen Show". She was holding up a giant sized check for $400,000. I've also seen many other references for free tickets to school kids paid for by who knows who. Of course, the massive propaganda campaign (Black Panther was talked about in the media, etc. constantly) accelerated the popularity of the film amongst many.

My question is how many people saw the last 3 or 4 Marvel super hero films prior to this one. I'd bet the numbers are nowhere near BP. It's all the hype.

Heads up: TPTB lied about how much the film made each weekend in each market. Granted, in AmeriCUCKa it probably came close, due to virtue signaling and so forth, and I do know a large percentage of superhero film "geeks" who will go see anything comic book related,( even if it is to bitch afterward about inaccuracies in pg 17 of edition 12, 1965 or some shit.) and they reported pretty much in lock step that it was a "black people age great" movie and not a real superhero film. So look for DVD/Bluray sales and streaming to suffer badly.

Bill in St Louis said...

After reading this post, and its comments, 3 things stand out:
1 - (((Hollywood))) is lying, if not about ticket sales themselves, due to "donor" tickets bought so little shitavious and jomammba can skip school and go see it for free, but about the record breaking popularity and love for this pile of crap. Expect DVD/Bluray sales to tank, quietly, unless the need to lie continues. As far as popularity goes, this has been shoved down YOUR throats for however long, (YOUR being those of you who still have a magic negro box in your homes. Kill your TV.) so if course the sheep will flock to it like they have been told, and baa like they have been told. I am willing to bet the only reason they got those reviews out of China is by seriously editing what the translators allowed to come out.
2- Black Girls Code - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! No shit. Take away the corporate doublespeak and what you have is a mission statement "Black girls are stupid. They must be trained. Their egos must also be stroked while training them for these menial tasks they might be able to learn how to do, if repeated often enough. Otherwise who will feed them when the YT is gone?
3- China wants to take over Africa. Is this a bad thing? We know that the Chinese are racist, REALLY don't like black people, are good at suppressing media leaks and mass executions. If in, say 5 to 10 years we woke up and realized that the only blacks left were the Africans in America, could we send them "home" for "re-education"?
