Resurrections to be released in China in an attempt to explode the box office

Matrix 4 : Resurrections gets a release date in Chinese territory and a golden ticket for its global box office.

The interdependence between the United States and China takes a curious form when it comes to business and cinema. Per day, nearly 18 screens were created and joined the ranks of the fleet of 80,000 Chinese screens in front of which parades a growing middle class, fond of cinema in a country where cultural leisure activities are not legion.

A situation that suits Hollywood, desperately in search ofa new Eldorado to make his blockbusters work since American revenues are no longer sufficient to absorb their colossal budgets. Dredge operations take all forms : invitation of Chinese stars to the casting, even if it is a question of inserting them with forceps in a new useless montage (Fan Bingbing in Iron Man 3) or have part of the action take place on Chinese territory (Transformers 4: Age of Extinction).

Recently, we learned that it was Spider-Man : No Way Home which would normally experience an exit on Chinese territory. Good news for Marvel after no release for Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the legend of the Ten Rings as well as Chloé Zhao’s refusal to submit The Eternals with the knife of censorship.

This time, it is the return of Neo which will take place in the Middle Kingdom since Matrix 4 : Resurrections just got a scheduled release date of December 16, 2021, just under a week before its release in the US and most international markets. Good news since the release of the film will not be sealed (at least not too early) by illegal downloading.

I have to absorballthis … money

Matrix 4 : Resurrections should also be The latest Warner Bros movie to be released simultaneously on the HBO Max platform, at least that was the promise made by the studio after the outcry caused by its unilateral decision vis-à-vis other players in the industry. Whether the sirens of financial security will prevail remains to be seen. That will not prevent us from going to follow Mr. Anderson and the rabbit in the tunnel from December 22, 2021.
