Re: Great Wall interview (funny- incredibly cringe worthy)

Just a question..Who did Matt Damon cross at Variety? They have been full of snark towards him for a while.Their article on the film is slanted at the least.
The Great Wall it has made $224M at the box office. If it's budget was $150M with three companies sharing the cost, it has made that back plus a profit.
The hatred towards this film has been propaganda at its finest.

Nobody makes a profit at the current box office levels. Prints and advertising, let alone promotional costs, will be well over $100 million. Plus they've been really pushing up the marketing even though it's a losing cause. Everyone's losing money on this. Variety's reporting on business, and this movie has been operating at a loss and is also dreadfully conceived. Variety's doing their job.

Сause is not Matt. It is likely the policy of relations between China and the United States.
The movie will start to make a profit when fees will be box office to at least three budgets. And that's if you're lucky.
