No Harry Potter For China Until Patriotic Movie Makes $120 Million

Despite the record breaking box office numbers, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 hasn’t opened yet in China. Rumor has it that moviegoers in China won’t be allowed to watch just yet: “Despite adamant denials by a co-director, Huang Jianxin, many audiences seem to believe one prevailing rumor: that foreign blockbusters will be delayed until “Great Revival” receipts surpass $120 million. Such suspicions are reinforced by a couple of undeniable truths: Transformers: Dark of the Moon will not reach China until Thursday, three weeks behind the United States premiere, while Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is not scheduled to land here until Aug. 4. “

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
