RoboCop in Hengyang

Unlike a similar screen at a shopping mall in Haikou, a giant outdoor screen at the Shin Pin Shopping Mall in Hengyang was not displaying a static Windows desktop when I passed by. Instead, it was displaying something else with a U.S. connection--the remake of the science fiction film RoboCop.

The audio was in English, and the subtitles were in Chinese. Based on the 暴风影音 logo, it looks like the movie was provided through the Chinese video streaming service Baofeng. And not surprisingly, the screen was receiving more attention from people than the screen I saw in Haikou.
