Larger than Universal's and Paramount's combined, Hengdian World Studios features 12 motion picture shooting sites spanning different periods of Chinese history. Since 1996, the company has invested over 240 million U.S. dollars in construction, which includes a replica of the Forbidden City built to scale: 100 acres, the equivalent of Warner Brothers' own Hollywood back-lot! Some 50 films and TV dramas are produced here every year, including international hits such as Hero. Hengdian boasts an amusement park, a vast filmmaking complex and a school for actors. It has become a hugely popular tourist site, making it a complex environment with a host of contrasting personalities each with their own agenda.
