Default Mulan success??

Just wondering if anyone has seen any "real" information on how Mulan is performing from a financial perspective being released on streaming versus the theaters?

I have seen that Tenet is performing poorly in the US due to a variety of reasons. Some may be related to the movie itself ignoring the impact of Covid and others can be related such as theaters in some of the major markets in the US being closed.

Wonder Woman has been pushed back to Christmas (boo, one of the movies I really want to see). Black Widow is up in the air ever though I don't think its release date has been officially changed.

Thus, I am curious how successful Disney's "experiment" has been performing from a financial aspect and ignoring some of the associated issues related to boycotting for various reasons.

Don’t think anything has been officially released aside from wait until the next quarterly earnings. Likely not the best sign, but who knows...

Too soon to know.....Sales figures have not been released. There was a side benefit of Disney+ had a jump in subscriptions tied to the release of Mulan.

Saw Tenet in the theater with my oldest. It did not disappoint. My kids aren't interested in seeing Mulan. We might watch it when its free.

According to NYT. Milan fizzled in China. It was not true enough to the original poem “the legend of Milan”. It was too westernized and details such as the type house she loved in and emperor Milan would have served were wrong. Milan in the poem was from the the North. It is also Han centered and Milan was set 400 years earlier .

None of these things matter to Americans . But apparently do for the Chinese audience .

I am waiting to watch in Dec.

It is not meant to be a historically accurate account but rather an action film.

We enjoyed it very much. The scenery was fantastic - nothing earth shattering in the story line but it was well done. We will share with other family and didn't feel the $30 was a problem. Made our own popcorn.

No thanks.

I hope they lose $$ with this film.

Disney does not exist in a bubble. And when it supports the violation of human rights, it needs to be called out and punished.

And they said that's a main reason why it did so bad in China, so I read.
