Well, China is building 4 cinemas a day..
I guess at this rate the next Wolf Warrior movie will have a debut weekend of $1 Billion domestic in China.
“WORST FUCK’n FILM EVER, THIS CLOWN MOVIE IS STRAIGHT TRASH.”😂😂 Propaganda at it’s Finest…
I'm really late to the party due to work, but there are dozens of documented female Italian mafia leaders. I wonder if "The Good Mothers" is fictionalizing any real Italian figures? So, is this more documentary, "historical fantasy" a la Firefly Lane, or drama?
So it's bad if a female character dates a male character, but good if a female character dates another female character. Mmhmn, got it.
Yeah…these FS comics are expensive and the latest covers with the hero on blank background are extremely lazy.
Yikes. I wouldn't have subscribed again if I knew the first part of this video was going to be sinophobic and fear-mongering.
Honestly, Scott Mendelson and Dan Murrell’s box office analyses are far more credible than Grace’s.
In yen right???
I'm sure twice as many people , than ever before, didn't go to the limited amount of open theaters during a pandemic.....I call BS!!!
I was in Detective Chinatown 2!
Should read marvels king in black event it’s 🔥
Too much of everything. Too many Batmen. Too many Supermen. Too many Wonder Women. Too many Aquamen. Too many Flashes. Too many Earth Green Lanterns. It's become a mess.
Idk grace plenty of the dc future state issues have been pretty good imo
i am so glad that china always makes up numbers :) :)
I have the Disney bundle Grace and uses all 3 services.
Hi Grace, nice background! I love listening to BTT while I'm sitting at my desk working or doing things around my house.
Americans just think the world revolves around them. Why can't you just accept a win when you see one?
Personally I would like to Harley go back to a villain and it wouldn't surprise me if that happened eventually. There was a time where the riddler was a batman ally but he turned back to a villain again
It’s a sin is soooooo good
13:03 is fireeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I like it and appreciate it and so does Cbr
China does not have good taste 🤦🏾♂️
They don't, but that's exactly why this number is more believable than Grace give it credit for. If they flocked to see Michael Bay craps in the millions, then why would a domestic film they made not do better?
Keep in mind China was just on their lunar new year holiday break. Normally people go overseas or to their hometowns to spend time with families. But this year everyone stayed put. So they needed things to do. So retail, dining and movies was up. I am an expat in shanghai and trust me... malls were full. Doubt that number is real... but still, something to consider.
"When a female character starts dating a male character, in the comics, it really hurts their storylines. Like, look what happened to Lois Lane." Please explain. I mean, when was Lois Lane NOT dating Superman? She was introduced as his love interest, and has served that story function for 80 years, so I have no idea what you're talking about here.
she is full of shit. don't mind her. let her be happy in her bubble.
The number of theatres in China is more than 75000 theatres.
Detective Chinatown inflated box office number might be inflated. But....we should also consider that it is the Chinese New Year Holiday right now, and everyone is excited to celebrate without the lockdown they had last year. Everyone is out celebrating, and is the biggest spending holiday in China.

Unusual, but not impossible. It was Luna New year Weekend there and no one can travel. Most people had no option but to go to the movies. It seems, according to reports that a lot of people didn't like the franchise, but went anyway. The ticket prices were also higher than usual which made the difference.
I did some math. The number takes 3% of the Chinese population to go to see this movie. Endgame's opening weekend number requires 7% of the US population. It's very possible. From what I read, this movie is the only one in most theaters in China right now.
Im having a grill cheese at 215 am lol
Avengers Endgame made what? $350M opening weekend in the US, that has 300M people. China has 1.4 BILLION people, most of who are not traveling for Lunar New Year, so with nothing to do for 3-4 days, the 3rd instalment of a very famous movie in China manages to make $398M and that's somehow a lie? also taking into account that ticket prices are on average double or triple the usual price to offset not being allowed to fill up a whole theater + pandemic prevention costs (sanitization, etc) .. I'm not claiming this movie is on par with Endgame, but at some point you just have to look at things rationally. I love your content Grace but sometimes your American bias shows
Yeah China is full of shit
What about the box office always beating out previous year's? Isn't that made up due to inflation? There certainly aren't any calculations made on that.
Grace: What happened to the BEEKEEPER?? PIETRO IS AGENT FRANKLYN, THE BEEKEEPER!
Dark Detective is ok
I’m so glad the American govt and its allies in Hollywood never lie.
Grace, just accept the true. China surpassed US box office, get over it.
Lol, Grace probably thinks China created the virus too 😂😂😂
@Connor Ferg WAS, as anything, US can't stand not being at the epicentre of everything, so they took over that title in, well I don't know? Last June? Seriously keep the border closed and don't come to Canada Americans, we'll talk to you when you finally get your shit back together
@Connor Ferg yeah, by that logic South Korea would be dead in the first month. Even if that weren't the case they shouldn't be doing better than the US, but they are, all East Asian countries are, they all basically adopted similar policies, and yet you still wonder why that work, or just choose to believe that works.
@Connor Ferg No, that's not reasonable at all. It would be reasonable to say that China was the first country to discover a new virus. It is not reasonable to assume the first country to discover a new virus is also the origin of said virus. Your assumption is not scientifically accurate. The origin of the virus hasn't been settled yet. I suggest you wait for the science before you cast blame. Your country is in this position because your government is incompetent. All of China's neighbors are relatively virus free yet countries thousands of miles away with way less travel links have way higher cases of covid. That's the fault of your government and the fault of your population not adhering to basic pandemic prevention guidelines. Blaming others while not acknowledging your own faults is exactly the reason why you're in this mess to begin with. When will you learn?
I think it’s more than reasonable to say that China is the epicentre of the pandemic, if it wasn’t for them, then we wouldn’t be in the situation we are in right now.
right? the caucasity. i can't with these U.S. extremists, they'll Never change
On Disney + in germany we got a lot of buena vista content recently
Give europe the win with star. We don't have hulu and get stuff like really late
Harlee Quin being part of the Bat family is completely ridiculous
I hate they feel every needs to be a anti hero don’t need Harley on or apart of the bat family I like there random team ups but not full time

Hi Grace, I have been viewing the boxoffice mojo in the detective china town. It's distributor is named. "Wanda Vision S. A." Well it is just coincidence that Wanda is the Wanda Group right or is it another Wanda media company. It links to spanish company. What is happening good thing they do not sue Disney's WandaVision. hehe
Godzilla vs Kong trailer 2 watch it
If you're upset about Future State, You only have yourself to blame Grace. I mean come on Grace. Hahahahaha, You're telling us that only you didn't see this coming? You gave DC money for this crap. That's on you! You really need to do a deep dive on how poorly DC did with this FS run.
The question you should ask is whether it is possible that China would have a greater box office performance than the U.S. If yes, you would have to accept that someday. Nobody in the world would think America could keep up with the growth of China. You have been saying Chinese made up their box office record for a few years now. But someday you would come to terms with yourself and accept the truth.
Grace, it was the Lunar New Year last weekend, and it is very normal that families go out to watch a movie during this period. I can imagine Chinese grandmas watching a film like this than Avengers, so I am not surprised that this is the highest grossing movie in China.
Grace just believes everyone in china loves avengers and US movies..
going to watch boss level on the 25th February, then we have chaos walking 4th of march and Godzilla is on the 25th march, cannot wait!!!
I think here is my analysis why china was able to surpass the avenger endgame box office double. I have no evidence for this but just some suggestion how it can happen. 1. In China they do not have quarantine anymore in most cities so that would result in most people going to cinema. 2. Well there are no new Hollywood film showing so Chinese movies have less competition in Chinese mainland cinema. This happens a lot to hollywood boxoffice where a not so good movie gets big box office if not much competition. 3. Another one is, most countries where chinese go abroad to spend their money is in lockdown and closed. So if you cannot spend your money in airlines, hotels, tourist stuffs abroad, I would assume local domestic movie is where some of those money would go. 4. Also, the annual chinese new year migration was discourage this year. So city chinese folks may just use their money to cinema instead of travel to province? I do admit it is difficult to trust china numbers though, they do not allow criticism within the country so you cannot contest numbers and cannot do investigative journalism. So yup, the numbers may have been made up. But it is also possible it was double just my thoughts. China is also a next exporter this pandemic so they have more money than most western countries. So that may have eplained why they have money to spend for movies.
I just googled number of theatres and screens in usa, Canada and then china.
After New 52 and other re-imagining, the powers that be at DC should have give things a rest. Stick with the fundamentals with each character and run a few years with good stories - shorter 4-6 issue arcs. Harley Quinn is foe of Batman - can't twist her into an ally.
Detective Batman and Harley Q team Up
Streaming services don't have a choice when it comes to local content because European legislation is being enforced to stop big american companies destroying regional media. Which is good legislation because more voices? More artists? Fantastic
I really feel like Bad Robot are out of their depth on Justice League Dark
Outside the regular hollywood trades; NY Times and People are also reporting. The population is dense over there. Plus the lunar year.
Grace you are so close to 1M, what's you celebration plan?
I tried Future State. It just solidified why I stick to independents now, and just catch the cliff notes from USplan and wiki pages.

Why isn’t the Snyder cut trailer being promoted on TV at all?
Grace it's called The Lunar New Year in China. Maybe that played a role in it.
@alexy sam : Why is that?
I mean still NO
Grace I like you a lot, you are like MKBHD in the movie world to me. But please talk movies like you used to, Grace. Stop commenting on another country. That's the politians job. People here are for your professional opinions on movies, not on covid
She's always talk about movies from around the world. Especially the one that making headlines. Lol
I love Grace saying Disney+ owns Friday night with their 25 minute shows.
@KISAI lol tell me about it
There's this very american centric view of reality sometimes...
😂 it’s funny but it’s true
cherry the worst movie she ever seen? mmm it has to be good then
Well technically, she said "one of the worst", but I assume your conclusion still stands.
I'm curious when is WandaVision season 2 coming out since season 1 is almost finished. Only 3 more episodes to go
Its probably a limited series now season 2
Probably won’t be a second season
Where can I read marvel comics from the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s?
I don't understand why people are acting surprised, this isn't the first time China has manipulated their statistics. Just look at the pandemic.
@Xiaotian Zhang 以前至少怀疑三四次了，当然这次是最直白最彻底的。
Snyder King Arthur? Do Camelot 3000 please, i can die a happy man.
Hey Grace. will you do a foreign movie review (old or new) recommended to you by your subscribers? from the most numbers of subscribers to the least base on demographics ?
I thought Tom & Jerry was coming out after summer 😆
For the life of me, I cannot think of one reason why ANY country would make up numbers for something so trivial as box office numbers. I think U.S. people are getting way too paranoid about China.
@Brandon Alexander "Right now Chinese reporters who covered that the pandemic is still out of control in China have disappeared and lost their lives.... with proof..." care to share that "proof"? Just because you say there are "proof" doesn't mean there are proof. Or are you just too shy to admit thinking others are always worse off than the US somehow make you feel better about your 500k deaths due to covid?
@Brandon Alexander Yeah China definitely want to attract visitors, that's why they stopped issuing travel visa
Getting paranoid? They were always paranoid
@Miss Star r u kidding me? the breakdown of box office is done in Chinese and we can easily access all sales data over weibo.. it is just Grace lazy af and did no research.. did she tell you the ticket price goes from 45 to 98 during Chinese New Year break? did she tell you USD devalued against RMB from 1:7.2 to 1:6.4? I bet she did not.. do a simple math plz. The accumulated box office of detective chinatown3 is not even passing the Wolf Warrior 2... just broke the record of opening box office.. why would people so surprised a Chinese movie breaks the record in china? let me tell you half of the chinese never heard of marvel or dc.. it is China not the U.S.
@Brandon Alexander did u ever go to china? who told u china is now still experiencing covid pandemic? cuz your media says so? even when the covid cases showed up again in Jan.. only less than 100 cases in couple of provinces.. they could track down who the origin of those new cases. they can make all citizens in Beijing take tests in a week. it's been a year helloo.
Grace, I respect your opinion but I have to disagree with you about ,,diversity" in European movies and shows. Europe has over 90 ethnic European groups and over 50 countries. Every European country has it's own culture and tradition. We want our entertainment industry to be European, not American. Europe is not racially and culturally diverse as the USA is because only 3 % are of non-European origin and most of them don't have citizenship. Eastern, Central and South Europeans need to be more represented in movies .Plus the current sitiation in Europe is very bad, both social and political. Europeans don't want immigrants.
Disney cooks the books so will everyone else,Disney for $1.62 on HotStar .
Toho in Japan is also doing really well, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Movie: Mugen Train is doing so well that it beat Spirited Away as the highest grossing Japanese film of all time. Toho also distributes in Japan and co-produces Universal and Paramount’s films, so Sonic and Trolls: World Tour (which had a theatrical release in Japan) also did really well there. And then they have Godzilla vs. Kong, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, Earwig and the Witch, Shin Ultraman, Minions: The Rise of Gru, F9, and Top Gun: Maverick lined up for this year.
You can’t really trust box office numbers anyway though so... But, China’s population is 4 times that of US. I’m surprised they haven’t already reach that number.
You said when a female dates a male which is natural, it hurts the story line. So if she dates a woman the story is better?
I loved Malcolm and Marie. This is the best acting from both of those actors.
I agree, DC Future State is garbage overall. So much of it makes little to no sense. The stuff that does make sense is just ok
So this isn’t a video about future dc statehood?
And NYC didn’t lie about the numbers? Actually China is pretty much recovered from the pandemic - they are the only large country with positive GDP. Perhaps you need to check whether US media have actually been that truthful as part of geopolitic that is happening behind the scene
China adopted strict quarantine and lockdown and everyone wears mask ever since late Jan 2020.. I don't know why people are surprised covid could be contained there.. when they could clear all original cases and everyone traveled to China has to be in forced quarantine for 2 weeks in hotel, you can contain it.
Even though i'm pretty sure that China inflates its box office numbers, I think that this time Grace has not considered a couple of things: Detective Chinatown 2 (well, these were the numbers given by China...) opened in 2018 with 154 million and made 554 million total, after the first one made only 120 million total. if Detective Chinatown 3 had a similar increase on the second movie, it would probably be on its way tp became the first movie to reach 1 billion in a single territory. Furthermore, it's "Chinese New Year" and I would say it's a little bit like Christmas in the US. In 2018, during the same recurrence's weekend, the top ten in China generated 506 million (nearly 188 million were from Monster Hunt 2 and nearly 155 from Detective Chinatown 2, among others) and in 2019 the top ten generated 360 million (after generating more than 300 million from monday to thursday, because New Year's Day was actually on monday 5th). So I wouldn't be too surprised if Detective Chinatown 3 had made 398 million, as long as other movies in the top 10 haven't generated more than 100-150 million overall. Compare this weekend with the last one: last weekend the top ten movies in China made less than 20 million overall. This weekend is clearly a special moment in China. Third and last point: I say it again, I don't believe that these numbers are "genuine", but China's economy grows about 5-10% every year and probably ìthe movies' box office grows as much as the rest. On the other hand, US' economy grows 1.5-2.5% a year, which is only slightly more than the inflation rate, which means ion the end that chinese people are actually getting richer year after year, while americans' "richness" is steady, but not growing much. However, as you said, I also think that China has been unflating their box office numbers for many years and this year it was more important in order to show strenght during the pandemic (a strenght that maybe is only appearence and not a lot of substance...)
The Justice League and Wonder Woman titles are the only titles I’m enjoying; but omg the art for immortal wonder woman is awful.
Why would the number not be realistic? People are extremely bored in china since hollywood have not been putting out movies and china's pandemic was over long time ago. Plus their population is a lot more than North America. And it's the lunar new year! do the math
Their pandemic is not over. They're pretending it's over, but it's not. 🤷🏾♀️
I skipped Future State. First time in fifteen years I haven’t bought new DC Comics. Sounds like I made the right decision.
Ticket price in China increased by 50%. Thats why.
Not only that, but this time a lot of people was not come back to their hometown, they stuck in the city, probably adding the number of box office.
I love the "Ask Me Anything" sections its my favourite part :-)
Glad to know Disney + will be playing the original foreign content game. Much of my favourite Netflix content is not in English, and hopefully Disney will also give creators from all over the world a venue to reach a global audience On another note, I'd like to know what are Grace's references regarding European content, because the European movies and shows I watch seem true to the demographic shifts the continent has experienced in the last few decades.
China will lie lie lie.
Grace, I hope you reconsider and end up reviewing It's a sin!
I was so disappointed to hear that she wasn't going to review it, but I'm also not surprised after she mentioned in a video last week that she hadn't watched it yet. I had a feeling she would wait too long to watch and then end up not reviewing it, which is a real shame.
Geoff Johns is the greatest nemesis of all to DC fans everywhere. Everything he touches turns to shit - I said what I said.
I read what you said, and it can be said that it’s been read, well said.
I just saw the trailer for Detective Chinatown 3. Apparently having a dark coloured face is one trait that makes one a murderer. Mmmmmm.
@despairedboy The translated line is 'he has a dark face' I didn't mention the word 'that' or say he mentioned the N word. Also the person he is talking about removes a black face mask, saying it's mask not his face. So it's clearly about looking black, not 'bruised' as you claim.
that was taken totally out of context, like, Chinese word for "that" sounds like the N word, but it's not. The aforementioned line is more accurately translated to having a bruised up looking face, but then again that'll be way too long for subtitles
For comic reading I would get comixology and read some of the free stuff they offer. Right now I am reading Lonewolf and cub . If you have kindle they share some of the things you can read
Some reports indicated ticket prices in China for DC3 averaged $2 higher than other recent movies (a price increase to supposedly make up for lower theater capacity). After reading a synopsis of the Detective Chinatown franchise, I have to think that this is the equivalent of a Police Academy movie making $300 million in the U.S.
Sorry, I missed this stream live. I'll try to do better tomorrow. I also think Judas and the Black Messiah is great!
DC Future State’s writing is very lack luster. I personally like the new characters, they are all really enticing but the dialogue seems off.
Is this woman for real? Did she just say china made up the numbers?xD
@Rafael Ortiz are you asking me?
Are you hurt? Who hurt you?
@George Vivanco which part? You think i asked you? Do you answer to every internet question you dont know the answer to? Do you understand rethoric? Do you troll or roll?
I mean... I don’t know lol
Who would’ve guess getting the moron behind Marvel NOW would backfire
