"We certainly hoped for enormous success, but I think the fact that we crossed the billion-dollars … it's almost so overwhelming it's difficult to really process just what the response has been to the movie so far, and it hasn't even opened here yet," she said.

她表示:"我们当然希望影片能取得巨大成功.不过我觉得,现在票房已达10亿……这太让我们受宠若惊了,我们根本没料到本片会有如此反响.而且,这片子还没在中国上映呢."

"Certainly we're hoping and anticipating that it will play very very well here."

"当然,我们希望,也认为,本片能在中国票房大卖."

Chinese market:

中国电影市.

The Chinese market has become increasingly important for Hollywood as revenues from movie theaters stagnate at home. Some movies have incorporated Chinese characters or stories to try to appeal to the Chinese movie-going audience.

全美票房收入近来持续低迷,因此中国市场对好莱坞显得愈发重要.不少好莱坞电影加入了中国面孔或中国元素,以此来吸引中国影迷.

Asked whether "Star Wars" movies would do the same in the future, Kennedy said they had just finished shooting "Rogue One," the first stand-alone "Star Wars" story. Hong Kong martial arts actor Donnie Yen and Chinese actor and director Jiang Wen have roles in it.

在被问及未来的《星球大战》系列影片中是否会加入中国元素时,肯尼迪表示,片方刚刚结束了《星球大战》系列首部外传《侠盗一号》的拍摄,香港武打演员甄子丹与内地演员兼导演姜文均在其中有戏份.

"They play wonderful characters, and certainly there are many mythologies inside Chinese literature that I know we can explore in the future and find ways in which we can integrate some of those stories into the Star Wars universe," said Kennedy.

肯尼迪表示:"两位演员的表演都非常棒.另外我觉得,中国文学中有那么多神话传说,相信会给我们未来的创作带来不少灵感,并以某种方式被写进《星球大战》的故事中去."
