Erich Schwartzel, the Wall Street Journal's film industry reporter in Los Angeles, joins Eric & Cobus to discuss China's push to become a global power in the entertainment business. The billions of dollars that Chinese companies have invested in Hollywood combined with its own massive domestic film market, soon to be the world's largest, gives the Chinese a distinct advantage as they seek to open new markets in Africa, the Middle East and other points along the "One Belt, One Road" global trade network that Beijing is developing.

Join the discussion. Do you think China can become the next entertainment powerhouse? Will audiences around the world flock to Chinese-made content the same way they devour Korean, Mexican and U.S. entertainment media? Let us know what you think.
