Texas Senator Ted Cruz proposed a bill to block Hollywood studios from assistance received from the federal government for a film screening in China.
China is in the second place of leading box office markets by revenue in 2019. Film companies might make changes in the characters or scripts to cater for the Chinese market.
Cooperation between American film companies and Chinese production companies is common. Aynne Kokas, assistant professor of media studies, claimed Chinese regulators get chances to shape content in every production process.
Also, films with certain actors who made comments on China are not allowed to screen in the movie threat in China. Movie discussing nasty topic in China like corruption will be banned.
