Not reviewed at press time. This comedy has shattered Chinese box office records and is currently the second highest grossing movie in the world after Deadpool. So now that Sony is distributing this Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle) comic fantasy stateside, you'd think think they'd want everyone to know about it, right? Guess again. No advance screenings were arranged, and no one at the company could be bothered to answer queries or send out info about the Austin release. Teach Sony a lesson and make this Chinese blockbuster a success in Austin.
