Chinese Urban Youths and Hollywood Blockbusters
Abbott, Henry R

2013, Master of Arts, Ohio State University, East Asian Languages and Literatures.
Since the first Hollywood blockbuster entered the Chinese film market in 1994, Chinese audiences have consistently shown box office support for this foreign cultural import. This research explores the reasons why Chinese urban youths, the major Chinese film-going audience, so enthusiastically go to movie theatres to experience America’s Hollywood blockbusters. Since the Chinese film market is now the second largest box office in the world, trailing only the United States, understanding the desires of the Chinese urban youth audience is essential for Hollywood’s continued success in China.
