I’m Really A Superstar Chapter 1691
Star Moon Animation Studios.
Everyone was in an uproar.
Little Wang yelled, “Why is it so high!”
Zhang Zuo scratched his head and said, “With these box office earnings, what’s there still to play for?”
Ha Qiqi said, “Hanson’s movie earned a total of 400 million USD when it was taken down from screening.”
“This is only the first movie that we’re betting against?” Tong Fu said, breaking down, “There are still over 20 movies lined up behind that we have to challenge? What’s there still to challenge!”
Wu Yi cursed, “Are the Indians on steroids or something? How did the movie get such good box office earnings there?”
Tong Fu said angrily, “It’s the same for Japan and Korea too. Those markets have contributed a lot to its box office performance.”
Mark Foran felt really powerless at this.
The Star Moon staff rolled their eyes.
“It’s game over.”
“There’s no way we can beat them.”
“What bet? We’ve already lost!”
“As if we can catch up to that!”
“Is our company going out of business?”
“I reckon so.”
“They have over 20 Hollywood directors on their side. Just one movie alone is enough to finish us off!”
Everyone had lost their confidence.
Only Zhang Ye didn’t feel so. “It’s only the first movie, and we haven’t even shown ours yet, so it’s not like the results have already been decided. In fact, I even wish that their box office earnings will be better. Otherwise, it won’t be interesting to fight them if they perform too poorly at the box office.”
Everyone was speechless.
You’re still bragging at such a time?
Ha Qiqi said, “We can only hope the rest of them screw up.”
Little Wang started praying again. “They have to screw up!”
Zhang Zuo consoled himself with, “Such good box office earnings are not likely to happen for most of the other movies. Even if there are, it might not be one of those directors who have a bet with us.”
In the following days, dramatic scene after scene took place!
The films of the Hollywood directors who made the bet with Zhang Ye premiered one by one!
The Wheel of History
There were all kinds of genres shown, and their box office performances also stunned people around the world. It was as though a golden age had started in Hollywood.
“The Proposal is quite good!”
“I’ll buy tickets to watch it then!”
“Haha, let’s give it our support!”
“Down with Face-smacking Zhang!”
“Count me in!”
“Who has watched Night Terrors?”
“I watched it. It’s alright.”
“Yeah, it’s pretty good.”
“I must watch it in theaters to show my support.”
“Yeah, it’s a rare opportunity where we can do our part to strike at Zhang Ye!”
“I’m going to watch it too!”
“What good movies come out recently?”
“The recent Hollywood movies are all pretty good!”
“I’ve already watched three of them!”
“I’ve watched five!”
“Buy, buy, buy! Watch, watch, watch!”
“Whoever dares to challenge Zhang Ye is worth supporting!”
“The quality of the recent movies is really high.”
“They’re all great movies.”
“It’s quite good. I recommend it.”
“I bet Zhang Ye is already in tears!”
“Hahaha, let’s wait a bit more to see what the box office earnings are.”
“Not many of us had expected this!”
“How’re things looking?”
“Damn, what’s the meaning of all this!”
“Pfft, Face-smacking Zhang is in danger!”
“They’re grouping up to have a go at him!”
“This is way too fucking over the top!”
The box office results were gradually released.
Maybe due to coincidence or some other reason, but the new movies of the directors who were involved in the bet with Zhang Ye had all performed extremely well in the box office. Even the worst performing movie had a final box office earnings of 200 million USD, while the best performer reached 600 million USD in earnings. Some of these movies had not even been taken out of theaters yet and were still constantly breaking new highs!
The entire world laughed!
The Hollywood film industry was very happy!
The media outlets from around the world did not know whether to laugh or cry!
Only at Star Moon Animation Studios was there a wave of scolding.
Ha Qiqi said, “They must be doing this on purpose!”
Little Wang said angrily, “What the hell? All of their movies are so popular?”
Wu Yi broke down. “There wasn’t even a single one that screwed up?”
Tong Fu sobbed, “The movies that were directed by those who are not involved in the bet with us are only doing average at the box office. But as long as it’s a movie that was directed by any of the directors betting against us, their box office earnings have all exploded? Does it have to be this obvious!”
Zhang Ye was shaking his head a little. “Steady now, we can still win!”
Zhang Zuo said, “Steady? There’s no way to win at all!”
Just the performance of one of the movies alone was enough to make them suffer!
And now, they had to win against every one of them?
In the Hollywood film industry.
“This is cracking me up!”
“Something like that happened?”
“Zhang Ye probably doesn’t even know how he has lost this time!”
“Phil, what are your box office earnings?”
“My movie brought in 400 million dollars.”
“Haha, mine got 420 million dollars.”
“This is so exciting!”
“Yeah, I never ever thought that we could do so well at the box office!”
“Our international box office earnings will set a new high this time!”
The global media.
“The box office earnings of Hollywood movies have set a new high!”
“An unstoppable era for Hollywood!”
“Global box office earnings blow up!”
“Zhang Ye, a man perhaps played by fate?”
“Hollywood enters a glorious era! ”
“The entire world is watching Hollywood movies!”
“Zhang Ye to bid farewell to Hollywood in advance!”
On the Web.
The people who had come to watch the commotion were going crazy with joy.
Actually, it was quite clear that all of this was probably just a coincidence. The Hollywood directors who had bet against Zhang Ye had only done so well with their movies because they managed to catch the market trends. However, all this success was still somehow attributed to Zhang Ye. Some formerly well-known Hollywood directors who had not made any good films for many years ended up encountering Zhang Ye this time.
How unfortunate for them!
They were really down on their luck!
People around the world started laughing.
“Hollywood wasn’t doing too well before this.”
“That’s right. For the past two years, the total box office earnings for Hollywood movies have started going on a slight downward trend. But they’ve started performing well this year as the movies saw a collective surge in earnings!”
“Yeah, this is so scary!”
“Hahahaha, I’m dying of laughter!”
“Thank you to Zhang Ye for contributing to Hollywood’s rise!”
“Zhang Ye has turned the dismal box office performance of Hollywood around!”
“I strongly suggest the bet be called off and let Zhang Ye continue making movies in Hollywood!”
“That’s right, call off the bet, keep Zhang Ye around!”
“Don’t let him go, Hollywood needs him, and the global film industry needs him as well!”
“He’s insurance for the Hollywood box office!”
“Thank you to the Indian people for their contributions too!”
“Our Japanese friends have also given a lot of effort!”
“Pfft, just how unlucky is this Chinese celebrity? How many people has he offended? When he’s down, ‘help’ from everywhere pours in?”
On this day.
In the media.
Among the people.
Within the industry.
The entire world had been amused by all that had happened.
They had met unlucky people before, but they had never encountered anyone as unlucky as this!”
Even the Chinese citizens felt a little speechless at this. Were the Heavens no longer tolerable towards Zhang Ye’s power that they had to come to subdue him?!
