Actually Russia or Russians in general have been baddies for a long time, much longer than just current. Unless you mean current as in the upcoming top gun sequel. Russians in Hollywood are predominantly cast as bad guys like gangsters, illegal arms dealers, corrupted oligarchs, evil killers, well basically criminals, and their woman as prostitutes, mistresses etc...As for the former Soviet union well, rocky 4 and eighties military movies kinda give you a picture.

Imo, Part of it is geopolitics, and the fact Russian market doesn't have the sway of the enormous Chinese market. I dun know who got the worse treatment by Hollywood between them and brown people though. It's a toss up. And dun get me started on Hollywood's love of heroic white savior movies ala the last samurai.

At the rate things are going Hollywood will be making movies where heroic PLAAF pilots shoot down rogue USAF pilots.

Well normally how it works is outside the country of origin, there would be someone who buys the rights paying a certain amount of money for them where they would make all the money or carry all the risks and not the country of origin. So its sounds like a Taiwanese company bought the foreign distribution rights for whatever territory those rights cover that they paid for and it would be up to them to protect those rights and not China. China already got paid by this Taiwanese company so it doesn't matter to Chinese company behind the movie because they're not getting any more money unless that was part of the deal. Hollywood on the other hand knows their movies are popular world wide hence why they want a piece of the pie in those markets.

I don't know if there is a thread for TV series. So I just post here of some recent hot Chinese TV series.

且试天下 | Who Rules the World
Netflix now hosts this series under "Who Rules the World". This is a rare martial arts series that actually show lots of good martial arts actions. A-list actors. Top notch production. Good stories.

祝卿好 | Wish You the Best
This is available in youtube. This is a feel good story that does not spoil your sentiment as a feel good story. In other words, the producers and the directors are normal people, who produced a normal love story.

特战荣耀 | Glory of Special Forces

This is available in youtube. It is hot in China now. I would like to have some assessments from the special forces experts here. Well, at least, looks like PAP 不土了.

This is also a pretty good show that I have been waiting for intently for about a year now. I thought this show was going to be coming out this December but I just found out today that it was released on the 27th of April. Plus, the show is only 27 episodes and not the usual marathon of 40 episodes which can he taxing at times.
