First off: big thanks to Katie for taking over last week! In that spirit of camaraderie, we suggest you round up a few friends and head out to the multiplex (or art house; we're not picky). You’re in for a round of scares, laughs, tears, and karate chops to the face. Also, Tyler Perry appears on screen in rare form as a man and someone finally uncovers the mystery of Sasquatch. So very, very much to look forward to!

Just as the nation as a whole sneaks up on surpassing the United States of America as the world’s foremost superpower (if it hasn’t already), China has become more and more important to the movie world in the last few years. Grosses for the relatively few American movies released there are huge (“The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” both just opened to big numbers), helping blockbusters make coin overseas even if they tank at home, while Chinese financiers are getting more and more involved in production of movies (as in “Looper” or “Iron Man 3,” both partially produced by Chinese companies, and featuring scenes set in the nation). And now, is China starting to beat Hollywood at its own blockbuster game?
