Dec 11, 2018
As China works to reopen its movie theaters and rebuild its local film industry, the country is turning to some superheroes for help.

All four of Marvel's Avengers movies are set to be rereleased in the country in the coming days and weeks. Joining the effort will be past Hollywood blockbusters including Avatar and Warner Bros.' Christopher Nolan films Inception and Interstellar.

The blockbusters haven't yet received official rerelease dates, but a source at one of China's nationwide cinema operators tells The Hollywood Reporter that they will be made available to movie theaters "basically, whenever the DCPs reach the cinemas."
