China Pulls Their New ‘Mulan’ From Theaters After 3 Days For Flopping So Hard
Following the heels of the disappointing release ofDisney’s new live-action “Mulan,” comes a Chinese-made animated film that also failed to impress viewers in China.
Real Mulan: Billed as a film that features “real China, real Mulan,” “Kung Fu Mulan” was supposed to correct all the misfires of its Hollywood counterpart but turned into an even bigger disappointment based on audiences’ feedback.
Gold Valley Films made “Kung Fu Mulan” for just $15 million, relatively a fraction of the cost of the Disney remake, reported Variety.
On Oct. 3, the film premiered in Chinese theaters during the “golden week” holiday, celebrating National Day.
Failing to capitalize on the holidays, the film flopped and was pulled from theaters just three days after release.
