“Chinese Ping Pong” was withdrawn from the Spring Festival, and Deng Chao couldn’t hide his disappointment in the live broadcast: It’s hard to “counterattack”

Facts have proved that the movie Spring Festival file is not something everyone can enjoy.

With the adjustment of the epidemic prevention policy, the film market, which has been depressed for more than three years, has begun to pick up. People in the industry are keenly aware of the business opportunities in this year’s Spring Festival, so they have left to participate in the competition.

Judging from the current situation, this year’s Spring Festival stalls should be regarded as the most competitive moment, not one of them.

Up to now, “Man Jianghong”, directed by Zhang Yimou and performed by Yi Yang Qianxi, Shen Teng, Zhang Yi, Yue Yunpeng, etc., has an absolute advantage. It has only been released for the fifth day, and the box office has reached nearly 1.9 billion.

What’s even more frightening is that the plot of “Manjianghong” is progressive and constantly reversed. While the box office is growing, word of mouth is also rising.

In terms of box office, box office share, and number of screenings, “Man Jianghong” firmly occupies the first place.

The second place is “The Wandering Earth 2”, which has won nearly 1.7 billion box office so far. The evaluation of this movie on the Internet is also very high.

Together with the big movie “Bear Infested” ranked third, the three movies accounted for more than 80% of the box office.

Under such circumstances, other films participating in the competition for the Spring Festival show are very passive. The same excellent works such as “Deep Sea”, “No Name” and “Exchanging Life” did not meet expectations at the box office.

The most tragic one is “Chinese Ping Pong: The Jedi Strikes Back” performed by Deng Chao, Sun Li, etc. The film was released on the third day of the Lunar New Year, and it only earned 40 million box office in two days of release.

Of course, the quality and plot of this work are very good, and it can be said to be the best one since Deng Chao became the director.

In the case of losing the opportunity, on the evening of January 25, “Chinese Ping Pong: Jedi Counterattack” officially issued a statement announcing the withdrawal of the Spring Festival file.

Several key points were mentioned in the statement. First of all, it was admitted that the publicity team had major mistakes and serious deficiencies in decision-making, preparation, and promotion, which caused the film to fall into a particularly passive situation during the Spring Festival.

This is indeed the case.

“Chinese Ping Pong” was only released on the third day of the Lunar New Year. At this time, “Man Jianghong” and “The Wandering Earth 2” had already become one, and there were even popular situations such as “pirate shooting” and “traffic hedging”.

This made “Chinese Ping Pong: The Jedi Counterattack” lose the opportunity, and the film schedule could not follow up.

The very real problem is that the audience wants to watch the theater and not let it go. This resulted in an embarrassing situation where the film only earned 40 million box office in two days of release.

At this time, the film studio announced the withdrawal of the Spring Festival film, which is a helpless move to scrape the bone to cure the poison and actively avoid its edge.

In the second part of the statement, it was mentioned that in order to allow more people to see this excellent film, the film crew decided to adjust it to a small-scale screening from the fifth day of the lunar new year, and “the Jedi counterattack” on February 17.

In other words, after the film was withdrawn from the Spring Festival file, the release date was changed to February 17.

It can be seen that “Chinese Ping Pong: Jedi Counterattack” has completely abandoned the Spring Festival file, and even avoided Valentine’s Day.

But can such an adjustment really be like the “Jedi counterattack” mentioned in the statement? I see little chance.

First of all, the film was changed two days after its release, which means that the film resources have been completely leaked, and the bottom line is gone.

Secondly, judging from the current popularity of “Manjianghong” and “Wandering Earth 2”, the continuous extension of the key is a certainty, and it is still a matter of whether it can be completely avoided.

It is worth noting that during the big period of the Spring Festival, there will be Marvel’s “Black Panther 2” and “Ant-Man 3”, as well as Tony Leung and Aaron Kwok’s “The Wind Rises”. There will be no less competition at that time.

It can be seen that it is actually very difficult for “Chinese Ping Pong” to “counterattack”.

On the night when “Chinese Ping Pong” was announced to be withdrawn, Deng Chao, the director and leading actor, led the whole team to conduct a live broadcast. As the director and main actor of this film, he would not be unaware of the news of the film’s withdrawal.

Deng Chao couldn’t hide his depression in front of the camera.

During the one-hour live broadcast, Deng Chao looked extremely tired, and he, who has always been “moving like a rabbit”, even smiled very reluctantly.

It was indeed not easy for Deng Chao. As a director for many years, he experienced repeated failures. It was not until the filming of “Chinese Ping Pong” that he really found the “medicine”. This “medicine” is the theme of the film.

Regrettably, due to a mistake in temporary shifting, Deng Chao, who finally got the “Wang Bo”, failed again.

If “China Ping Pong” hadn’t made such a mistake in shifting gears, it would definitely be able to get a share of the Spring Festival gear.

Some people also said that “Chinese Ping Pong” is more suitable for the National Day file rather than the Spring Festival file.
