A jilted Chinese man has spent forty-thousand US dollars on hundreds of tickets for Transformers: Age Of Extinction - just to prove to his ex-girlfriend how rich and awesome he has become.

That's casual.

The man, named Wang (stop sniggering, kids!) bought the tickets to a whole host of IMAX screenings of Michael Bay's action movie in order to prove his financial security to a special someone. Apparently, Wang's love interest - from seven years ago!! - moved to Beijing immediately after Wang was unable to afford to take her out on a movie date. The South China Morning Post is reporting that:

Now, after seven years of resentment, Wang has spent a quarter of a million yuan (HK$314,000) on hundreds of the cinema tickets, which he is giving away for free on the internet in order to show off his newfound wealth.
He said on his Weibo blog that after "striving hard for seven years", running his own company in Shanghai, he was finally able to afford to book all of the seats in four of the six IMAX theatres in Beijing for this Friday's showing of Transformers: Age of Extinction, to show his ex-partner what she was missing.

In his direct message meant for his ex-lover, Wang said that he wanted her to know that she might have made a mistake in dumping him.

I only want to say that you might have been wrong when you made that decision.

Gonna go out on a limb and say the laydee still probably doesn't want to go on a date with you, though, Wang. Soz.


Wang: more money than sense?

If that story made you cringe just a little bit, but you enjoyed it nonetheless, then you're ripe for these other movie-related breakups.



True story: A woman divorced her husband because he just wasn't that into Frozen. The wife became obsessed with Frozen and went regularly to watch it in the theater. Her hubby was eventually convinced into going with her, but afterwards he made the MASSIVE MISTAKE of saying he "didn't really care for it personally". Perhaps inspired by the lyrics of "Let It Go", his wife then said: "If you can't understand what makes this movie great, there's something wrong with you as a human being" - before divorcing the poor dude. That's love.

I guess film critic Roger Ebert hit the nail on the head when he declared: "Never marry someone who doesn't love the movies you love. Sooner or later, that person will not love you."


Fifty Shades of Grey

A British woman once divorced her hubby on grounds the erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey failed to get a rise out of his... Libido! Yep, seriously... Here's how it happened:

Wife picked up E. L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey for a little light reading; wife went crazy over it; wife bought frilly lingerie, pranced around husband and demanded Fifty Shades-style sexy time; husband was grossed out by book; DIVORCE.

Cray. Zee.
