China Kicks "The Last Jedi" Out ENTIRELY!

The World Class Bullshitters report today that The Last Jedi is entirely GONE from China. That's fast. Less than a month, and it's gone. Based China is Based, and they won't put up with shit films from foreign countries. Expect this to happen in other countries soon, as contracts run out and players chuck Mouse Wars for something that actually entertains an audience.

This is not a minor matter. This is a big deal. China is the most desirable foreign movie market in the world, from Hollywood's perspective, and arguable the largest (and therefore most important) market in the world. The collapse of this film has to have the head office concerned; they know that the strong-arm deal that they pulled on U.S. theaters can't be relied upon elsewhere, so they have to actually deliver an entertaining product if they want to keep their jobs (and their bonuses).

If I pity anyone in the cast of the Sequel Triology, it's Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver. Ridley isn't Rey; the actress seems just fine an a woman, even if she acts terribly. Driver survived Dunham, so he'll survive this trainwreck; he'll be fine, but he deserved a lot better than this. Oscar Iassc also deserves better, but he's solid as it is and won't be harmed; Boyega has the starring role in the next Pacific Rim film, so he'll get his shot to prove he's better than Finn soon enough.

In the meantime, let's keep at our #StarWarsNotStarWars and burn Mouse Wars to ash with the fires of our passion.

  1. I'm embarrassed to say I actually like Ridley's acting.
