The Long-awaited Mr Han - Chapter 3551
Chapter 3551 Untitled
Han Zhuoli rolled his eyes and said bluntly, “Who made it clear to you?”
“We already discussed it back before the movie was officially released and when the showtimes schedule had just come out. I gave you guys a chance. We could have made a deal if you guys increased ‘Dimensions’ showtimes back then.”
“However, you clearly declined the offer. Since you already declined the offer, then why should I continue on with the deal?” said Han Zhuoli bluntly, “You guys are really bold to take a deal whenever you want to and decline one by your whims.”
“CEO Zhu, it has been a long time since we joined this business, so we can’t be so naive, thinking that everything can be done according to our own will,” said Han Zhuoli mockingly.
“Before the movie was released, although I had the confidence that ‘Dimensions’ would definitely have a good result, I couldn’t predict the box office sales of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’.”
“During that time, I offered you a deal. The deal was for all three parties to take a step back and schedule the showtimes normally. But now that the momentum of ‘Dimensions’ is clearly getting stronger. The people are supporting ‘Dimensions,’ so you’re getting worried about it.”
“After all, the box office sales of the other two movies keep getting lower and lower. However, why should I waste the Han Corporation’s cinema halls by giving them to those two movies? On the contrary, the people are supporting ‘Dimensions’, and according to your showtime schedule, as long as they can choose, the audience won’t go to your cinemas to watch ‘Dimensions’.”
“The audience doesn’t want to watch ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’ nor do they watch ‘Dimensions’. Your cinemas have to earn a profit, too, right? There are too many showtimes of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’, but it’s not enough to attract enough audience. There are only a few people in one session, especially in big cinema halls like IMAX halls. The cost of your cinemas will increase, but the profit will be lesser and lesser. I believe you don’t need me to remind you of this.”
“And to crush ‘Dimensions’, you guys didn’t give any IMAX sessions to ‘Dimensions’. This forced the audience to choose the IMAX sessions of other cinemas.”
Han Zhuofeng put in a lot of money to use IMAX machines to shoot the film.
Without IMAX-capable screens, many scenes wouldn’t feel right.
“The showtimes of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’ should naturally decrease over time, since they can no longer keep up with ‘Dimensions’. Since that’s the case, why should I waste cinema halls for those two movies?”
“On the contrary, as you guys had to give these two movies a lot of showtimes, your profits will surely decrease. If you want the cinemas to have better revenue, you have to increase the showtimes of ‘Dimensions’. In the end, you still have to put profit first.”
“That way, even if we don’t make a deal, you guys still have to increase the showtimes of ‘Dimensions’ one way or another. In that case, why should I make a deal with you guys?” Han Zhuoli sneered.
“CEO Zhu, some opportunities cannot be gained back once they’re lost,” said Han Zhuoli.
CEO Zhu looked disheveled. He couldn’t help but think that Han Zhuoli was a true businessman. After all, he knew how to calculate things clearly..
Indeed, the authority and advantage all belonged to Han Zhuoli right now.
The box office sales of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’ would only get lower.
And ‘Dimensions’ had the support of the netizens, with ‘Dimensions’ being a sincere and pioneering work, they had to push the box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ to the top.
CEO Zhu pondered and felt that this routine felt so familiar.
However, he was still on the phone with Han Zhuoli, so he could not afford to think more about it.
Han Zhuoli also did not give him the chance to speak more.
“CEO Zhu, let’s leave it at that, then,” said Han Zhuoli, “The Han Corporation will definitely not increase the showtimes of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’. As for whether you want to increase the showtimes of ‘Dimensions’, it’s up to you.”
Unless they did not want to earn money, they should increase it.
As such, Han Zhuoli wasn’t under any pressure at all.
Han Zhuofeng had lived up to his expectations.
It was because the movie was so good that he could have this confidence.
He was verbally attacking CEO Zhu, and the latter could not even refute his words.
“Then let’s talk next time?” At that, he hung up.
Lu Man walked over and saw that the twins were already sitting next to each other.
It seemed like the two were comparing whose legs were longer.
Han Linzhe suddenly shook his legs and extended them straight, pointing at his own legs as if showing them off to Han Linxun.
Similarly, Han Linxun also shook her legs, and after extending them, she even inched forward a little.
Her toes were a tiny bit longer than Han Linzhe’s.
Then, she also pointed at her own legs, babbling, and looked at Han Linzhe.
Han Linzhe did not give up. He knew that Han Linxun had moved forward just now.
As such, Han Linzhe also moved forward.
These two balls of cuteness babbled as they moved forward.
Unconsciously, they had already moved quite a distance.
Lu Man also did not care about them.
Anyway, no matter how much they moved, they would not be able to move out of the carpet.
The corners of the surrounding furniture had been covered with soft corners by Han Zhuoli.
Even if they really knocked into the corners, it would not be painful, and they would not get hurt.
Lu Man and Han Zhuoli talked about CEO Zhu’s call just now.
Just like this, a week of work passed, with overtime added.
There were six days of work this week, and they could only rest on Sunday.
Most of the working people used the time on Sunday to watch ‘Dimensions’ again.
On normal working days, the box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ was above 200 million.
As for the other films, their sales became lesser and lesser as time went on.
Naturally, this included ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’.
On Sunday, everyone took a rest.
And the box office sales reached another peak.
The box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ went up to 400 million in a day. Just another twenty million and it would have reached 500 million.
This made Lu Man feel a little regretful.
At this moment, Lu Man felt like the hype was about to reach its climax.
As such, she made various social media accounts post some promotions.
This time, the promotions did not talk about the special effects of ‘Dimensions’.
Those things had already been talked about.
And many people had watched the movie already; even those who had not watched the movie yet knew that the special effects were superb.
This time, Lu Man focused the promotion on Han Zhuofeng’s shooting process.
She talked about the difficulties during the shoot and the suffering that the actors had gone through.
The difficulty of shooting at different places was also talked about.
During the shoot, there were also videographers shooting them from the side.
They had to record the shooting process.
Movies with director’s cuts would record the shooting process.
They also included how Han Zhuofeng saved money for the sake of state-of-the-art special effects.
Back then, to shoot the movie, Han Zhuofeng almost sold his car.
These were all made known to the netizens. Although Han Zhuofeng was the third son of the Han Family, the effort he put into his work was not lesser than others.
