"Tensions between the US and China is putting a chill on already chilly relations between Hollywood and government officials who oversee China's film industry, Stephen Zaitschek wrote about this for the Washington Post, and he says, it's tough to make a big budget film for global consumption without any guaranteed entrance into the Chinese market aids increasingly difficult. And you know, China over the last year, some listeners might be aware kind of grown its quota used to be about twenty films, three five or more so studios now have more options than they get before and that, and that means that they're going to be again far from her short. A leash Aaron particularly as you're content more political violent, they're going to have a bit of a hard time. But there is an increase. Reliance on China, which is great as long as movies are getting in there with these trade tensions increasing between the US and China Chinese film officials seem at least according to your reporting the they seem in no great. Hurry to help studios get their films into theaters there. But isn't it in their best interest for the overall health of the Chinese film industry to, to get these popular movies in the great question, which is how much does China want to protect its economy will be on Hollywood to tack, and soybeans, and other realms? Yeah. On the one hand, and, you know, keeping their domestic film business humming, on the other. And I think experts that I talked you seem to think the former was more important. One thing keeping in mind as well. Is that, you know, Chinese domestic per film production is quite a bit. They've had some movies that have done quite well, just a few months ago over the Chinese New Year, which is a big movie going period in the country called the wandering earth. Actually Netflix spotted, it was a small national here is was the second biggest Chinese movie of all time. And one of the biggest of all time in the country. Periods. So being a domestic industry quite a bit over the last few years. And so while it is important to them, and it's important to government leaders have a healthy exhibition business out the movie theater business. They have their own products. Rely on and they're very conscious in this sort of process of valley and foreign films of not having exports rather imports. I should say, come up and, and exceed fifty percent of their box office. So they wanna help me movie, whether you don't necessarily want all even much of it from the US. Well, it's not every Hollywood studio that seems affected by these trade tensions. It appears Disney films seem to be immune from this apparent freeze out how come well yeah, give me very good at managing. Chinese will you know every studios teams on the ground. They have people those in Los Angeles. And in Beijing. In the country to really manage the relationship but he does it better than most. Disney has also a business relationship with China. The Shanghai government is the majority, owner of Shanghai Disney theme park over there. So China are very kind of attached to the hip, and as a result, as you point out a lot of the movies that might otherwise be caught up in the trade war or getting released their endgame. Again, a few months ago vendors and game came out poise story is going to be coming out. They got some other big releases Spider-Man as well, Disney marvel film. So to be exempted that to go back to your earlier question. That is a way if they wanna keep kind of domestic movie going strong bacon kind of win on Disney to do that, and other studios in many senses, that seems to be without what kind of Hollywood movies typically stand the best shot to get into China and which kind do not there's a general feeling that if you're kind of in the more family. Entertainment, realm. If you're a little bit sort of more anodyne, as far as political messages, go certainly violence only sexual content you'll have a better chance. You know, one of the movies, look at for peace was rocket man yelled, John bio pic came out in the US t weeks ago, severely, explicit movie. It has a lot of explicit content like that. Even I think outside the trade war would have a hard time. Getting in once upon a time in Hollywood would show me releasing. Tarintino new movie about the Manson family that's going to have a hard time, regardless of the trade war. So I don't think there's really any kind of, you know, hard and fast Bullivant. What movie make it in? There seems to be a kind of bias toward more all audience family friendly films. Certainly, there's a Chinese star or message friendly to the Chinese government that never heard, so though, it's not, not a guarantee, but they're only wary regulators are very wary of political messages messages, that might be seen as an cassette to the Chinese government. And so you wanna release the movie. There you better make sure it doesn't have that. Well, President Trump is slated to meet with the Chinese premier next week at the g twenty summit in Japan. We all know that he routinely attacks various Hollywood stars, especially those who criticize him and the industry in general, but any indication if he would intervene on. On Hollywood's behalf should these trade tensions with China continue been no fan all publicly. We know he very much business with Hollywood star made by the NBC, but certainly, he's been very critical Hollywood stars who returned critical him. So, you know, it's hard to imagine a world in which some really good to bat for Hollywood in this way. You know anything possible only protecting American industry has been a hallmark of his presidency. But everyone I talked this story is time and said, you don't know things that Trump is going to serve argue for Hollywood is not really about list. And so it's hard to see that happening in this concept. Stephen Zaitschek covers the entertainment business for the Washington Post, Stephen, thanks. It's been a pleasure. Thank.
