"Crazy Rich Asians" was pretty big in the global cinemas, except in China where it received lukewarm reception. "Shang-Chi" was even worse in that the original story is antithesis to mainland Chinese knowledge of history, including me who grew up in mainland. All MSM comments on Chang-Chi vis-a-vis China that I have read so far is just another instance of western wishful thinking toward China or Chinese. They just don't get it. They believe in what they think they know.
Makes movie with reference to Fu Manchu and Shang Chi abandoning his own dad to get a white guy as father (what we call 认贼作父)

Surprise, it tanks in China!

Lmao they seriously thought a literal 认贼作父 movie would be popular in China??
