He ended by replying: “Please buy our merchandise, okay.” This is the second tongue in cheek criticism from the country’s largest cinema chain within a week. Shortly after Marvel Studios showed up at Comic-Con, GSC published the advanced calendar of Marvel movie releases but crossed out “Thor.”
Directed by Taika Waititi, the film was released on July 8 in North America, having grossed $283 million so far. All over the world, “Thor” has already accumulated 685 million dollars.
The delay move is the second missing release of a Disney movie in Malaysia in two months. In June, the release of Pixar’s animated film “Lightyear” in Malaysia was called off after the country’s censorship authority (LPF) requested cuts to the film, which is understood to include a same-sex kiss, until the film receives a release certificate. Disney has refused to make the cuts and is expected to put “Lightyear” live on streaming service Disney+ Hotstar. Malaysia was one of nearly two dozen, mostly Muslim-majority countries that objected to homosexual pigments in the “light year”.
Disney hasn’t made any comment on Thor, but has confirmed that the release will not go forward. diverse He realizes that the LPF again requested cuts, which the studio chose not to make.
GSC’s pain at losing another major Hollywood title reflects the economic damage Malaysian cinemas have suffered over two years from sporadic anti-COVID measures. Film admissions fell from an average of 77 million per year in 2017-2019 to just 3.72 million in 2021. Exhibitors also complain that the country’s theater window has now been halved from 90 days to just 45 days.
