Chinese Blockbuster Formula

Wolf Warrior II (Poster) 

There’s much to learn from the action film Wolf Warrior II, China’s highest grossing film ever. With a budget of only $30 million, the film opened in China on July 27 and has earned an astonishing $780 million since. The action film is directed by the new Bruce Lee of China, Wu Jing and is a product of the joint Hollywood-China film studio venture Anthem & Song. Read the 8/22 Hollywood Reporter article for information on the film and an interview with its American (villain) star Frank Grillo. The biggest take-away from the article is captured in the movie’s tagline,  “Whoever offends China will be hunted down no matter how far away they are.”
