Chapter One Introduction

1.1 Research Background

As a representative of global media products, Hollywood movies are widely watched by the audiences all over the world. According to scholarly research, the rapid growth of Hollywood movies’ cross-cultural communication in the age of globalization has become a significant area of interest. As the cross-cultural receivers of Hollywood movies, audiences’ interpretation is very likely to reflect their acceptance of the movies. Thus, great attention should be paid to the audiences who receive the movies. Correspondingly, audience studies of Hollywood movies have become an important area of research in the cross-cultural communication studies.

In China, Hollywood movies’ high box office and large number of audiences indicate their successful cross-cultural communication. Domestic studies on audiences’ interpretation of Hollywood movies mainly focus on animated movies and inspirational movies. Besides, most of the studies are general studies on Chinese audiences or Chinese college audiences, while few are on specific audiences. Additionally, it seems that the studies are inadequate in their discussion of why Hollywood movies attract audiences, because they focus more on the plots and less on the modes of images and scores. 

English majors not only learn the English language, but also Western culture. As a result, they are frequently exposed to Hollywood movies both inside and outside the classroom, which serves both as entertainment and a learning tool of English language and American culture. Therefore, English majors represent key audiences consistently exposed to American culture and Hollywood movies. 


1.2 Research Purpose

Based on Stuart Hall’s encoding/decoding theory and multimodal discourse analysis, the study focuses on the following two main aspects. Firstly, it focuses on the current situation of the acceptance of Hollywood movies among English majors and the reasons for their acceptance. Secondly, it aims to investigate the cross-cultural positions held by English majors when interpreting American values in the movie and explore the reasons behind these positions.

The research instruments used in the study include two rounds of questionnaires and an interview. The research participants are some English freshmen, sophomores, and juniors at a university in Shandong Province. The first questionnaire is a preliminary one used to grasp the current situation of the acceptance of Hollywood movies among the students. The second questionnaire is mainly used to study their cross-cultural positions when interpreting American values in The Pursuit of Happyness, namely, dominant-hegemonic position, negotiated position and oppositional position. Based on the results of questionnaires, the interview is conducted individually to study interviewees’ reasons for accepting the movie and reasons for their cross-cultural interpretation positions on American values in it.
