A Chinese movie actress named Fan Bingbing was added to the Chinese release of the movie Iron Man III. Some of Iron Man III was filmed in China. The Chinese are now the second biggest movie going nation. They’ll get over that and by this time next decade will be on to downloading to their movies to TV, like, you know, people in the United States do.
Bingbing was added, giving the Chinese version of Iron Man III extra exclusive Bingbing, leaving the rest of us wondering what the character was and how her appearance changed the plot and can Fan Bingbing really act and is she hot, in that Chinese actress kind of way, and what’s in the refrigerator that can I eat next?
That’s what I was wondering.
I read about this on Saturday. All day Sunday, I had “That Chinese chick in Iron Man III, Fan Bingbing is her name-o”, stuck in my head. The only way to get rid of something like that, I’ve found, is to pass it on to somebody else and that some somebody, today, is you.
“That Chinese chick in Iron Man III, Fan Bingbing is her name-o.”
I may be saying her name wrong. It could be Fan Bing-BING. I don’t know.
The people who made Iron Man III, Marvel, the same people that ruined Howard the Duck, filmed some scenes in Beijing in an attempt to have the Chinese government declare the movie to be at least “partly made in China”, which would all but assure it of being released in China. Not all movies made in the US have been released in China. Some have, but have been censored. Others have been banned completely. Apparently, the Chinese censors don’t like too much sex or violence or substance abuse.
Sex, violence and substance abuse pretty much describes most of Hollywood and Washington. To me, it doesn’t matter if Marvel makes more money. Make money, make more movies.
But I’d like to see Fan Bingbing. I looked her up on the web. She’s attractive. I want to see Fan Bingbing. I want to see the Chinese cut! What’s in the refrigerator that I can eat?
“That Chinese chick is Iron Man III, Fan Bingbing is her name-o.”
