In like a Lion
Only some six months back Chinese films began getting day-and-date releases in North America thanks to the establishment of a new distribution concern China Lion Films and the participation of AMC, the US’s second largest film exhibition group.
In some ways the move could be considered to be turning the clock back to when more Chinese-language films opened in North American theatres. In another way it can be considered a step forward that breaks the stalemate of high profile Asian films sitting on sales companies’ slates and failing to get the studio distribution deal some think they deserve.
