The remake of “Disney’s” movie “Mulan” brought in $ 23.2 million over the weekend in China, which is a weak start for the high-budget “blockbuster” about the Chinese folk heroine in her most important market.
The movie “Mulan” failed to reach “Tenet” by Christopher Nolan (Christopher), who earned 29.8 million dollars in China seven days earlier. “Mulan” is designed to attract a large number of viewers in China.
But “Mulan”, whose production cost $ 200 million, was hit by political controversy and received divided criticism in China.
The film drew criticism on social media, even calling for a boycott because of the film star’s support for Hong Kong police, but also because it was partly shot in the Sunkyang region, where China suppressed the Turkish ethnic group Uyghurs and other Muslims, which they criticized. some governments and human rights groups.
Chinese authorities have instructed the media not to report on the film’s arrival in cinemas.
