Sorry, China: Killers Will Be One of the Only Hollywood Movies Available to You This Year


The China Film Group, the government organization that decides which foreign movies will screen in Chinese theaters, traditionally only allows in twenty movies (like, from the entire world) a year. And this year — because its studio, Lionsgate, managed to finagle it into the final night at the upcoming Shanghai International Film Festival — one of those movies will almost definitely be Killers. As in, the box-office underwhelming, critic-avoiding, plot-recycling, Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl–starring Killers. Sorry, China! And please do know that Hollywood has better stuff to offer.
