China’s Most Expensive Film Could Prove Its Biggest Movie Flop


Asura, a fantasy epic based on Buddhist mythology touted as the most expensive Chinese film ever made, has been pulled from theaters after a dismal opening weekend.

On the film’s official Weibo account (roughly China’s version of Twitter), producers offered “deepest apologies to viewers who did not get a chance to watch the film, as well as to all the Chinese and international participants who were involved in its production over the past six years.”

The Weibo post did not give a specific reason for the decision, according to The South China Morning Post.
