A lot of companies are trying to salvage what they can before it's all lost.
Are they actually destroying film cans?

If so it's a mirror of Nazi Germany with their book burnings.

So far, nothing has been officially destroyed, probably because the authorities haven't noticed. But releasing them would bring a lot of unwanted attention.

Many Johnnie To films are already banned in China, and I imagine his Election duology would get him in massive trouble, with its vicious condemnation of the two government system.

Tsui Hark would be screwed, as a vast majority of his films cover Hong Kong handover fears, or Hong Kong as a unique identity.

Wong Kar Wai would probably suffer too, since he married sexuality and criminal elements, as well as exploring a homosexual relationship in Happy Together.

Infernal Affairs was brutally reedited for China, so much so that the filmmakers never bothered releasing the follow-ups in China.

Ann Hui, often critical of China's oppressive stance towards women, would also be a victim.

So a lot of Hong Kong studios are shipping out their inventory as long as they still have it.

'Road House' (1989) - 4K / Blu-ray combo available from Vinegar Syndrome direct - $35.53

"James Dalton is a tough-as-nails bouncer with a reputation for using any and all force necessary to "keep the peace." Meanwhile, Frank Tilghman, a country businessman, is having trouble maintaining control over the violent patrons and crooked staff at his newly acquired club, the Double Deuce. Upon learning of Dalton's take-no-prisoners attitude toward security, he makes a proposal too good for Dalton to refuse; summoning him from The Big Apple to Jasper, MO and handing him the reins to the bar, on the promise that he clean the place up. But no sooner than his first few days in charge does he wind up stabbed and in the hospital. With the knowledge that he's up against a gang of thugs who play even dirtier than he does, Dalton throws caution to the wind and prepares for a fight that will inevitably send someone six feet under...

Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy), Sam Elliot (Tombstone, The Big Lewbowski), and Ben Gazzara (The Killing of a Chinese Bookie) headline an all-star cast in director Rowdy Herrington's blockbuster turned cult classic, ROAD HOUSE.
