Disney Studios are preparing for a high-profile premiere of the blockbuster “The Eternals”, but the film’s box office is at risk. A huge part of the income for film studios comes from distribution in China, but this is where the new Marvel product may not come out.
The Eternal director Chloe Zhao made a number of harsh remarks about the Chinese Communist Party in 2013. Years go by, and the touchy head of the country remembers everything. Now the film has big problems with issuing a rental certificate, reports Comicbook.
Earlier, the PRC banned the showing of another Marvel comic strip – “Shang-Chi”. The censorship did not like one of the characters, who represented Asians from the wrong side.
