"Lupine" on Netflix: Without Omar Sy the series would fail

 +++ Opinion +++ © Netflix "Lupine" on Netflix: Without Omar Sy the series would fail Without any question, Omar Sy is one the highlights of " Lupine ". But I go one step further and claim: Without its leading actor, the successful Netflix series would be pretty stinking. Because Omar Sy pushes the weaknesses of the series into the background. He's the gentleman who blinds us with his irresistible charm and the crook who pulls judgment out of our pockets while he smiles insolently.

' New Gods - Nezha Reborn '. Produced by pioneering Beijing-based studio Light Chaser Animation , the film has earned million since its premiere last weekend over China ’s Lunar New Year holiday.

The slate of 33 “ Chinese anime ” titles will include four theatrical features — an area into which Bilibili has recently diversified.

Netflix has acquired worldwide streaming rights to Chinese animated film New Gods: Nezha Reborn, which opened theatrically in China last weekend at the start of the Lunar New Year holiday.

The film is produced by pioneering Beijing-based studio Light Chaser Animation. The movie is based on the oft-adapted classical Chinese novel The Investiture of the Gods, but Light Chaser has given the material a vivid pop-culture spin in a bid to generate excitement among Chinese youth.

Those efforts have yielded a modest success at China’s booming box office. Among the seven Chinese New Year titles that released last Friday, Nezha Reborn currently ranks fifth with $36.5 million in total sales, according to ticketing service Maoyan. But the movie has been a favorite among China’s more discerning filmgoers. On the influential movie reviews site Douban, which tends to be a reliable barometer for film quality in China, Nezha Reborn ranks second best among the new releases, with a user reviews score of 7.4. It’s trailing only the ascendent box-office champ Hi, Mom, which has a Douban score of 8.2 and total earnings of $403 million. The solid critical reception suggests strong legs for NezhaReborn for the rest of the holiday and beyond.
