The Wandering Earth: How To Find The Right Direction And Keep Improving It

The success of The Wandering Earth proves that China is not able to shoot sci-fi blockbusters. The key is how to find the right direction and keep improving it. This year's Spring Festival, a Chinese movie is very popular, this is a science fiction film, which is about the destruction of the solar system. In order to survive, human beings must take the earth to wander and spend 2,500 years to find a galaxy in the universe to settle down. When passing through Jupiter, it was in danger of life and death. Finally, through the concerted efforts of all mankind and the self-sacrifice of the heroes, they succeeded and continued their long journey. This movie is The Wandering Earth rendered by Fox Renderfarm. It is considered to be China's first truly sci-fi blockbuster. From the Spring Festival release to the current more than 20 days, the heat has not diminished, and even some audience watched it for the second time, the third time.
Not only domestically, but also in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other foreign markets, The Wandering Earth is also very concerned. As of February 26, the stray earth box office reached RMB4.391 billion. The film is still going on, and the box office number is still rising.   "Innovation" is the main reason for the popularity of The Wandering Earth. China has always lacked a real science fiction movie, and  The Wandering Earth can be said to be the first.
1. Wandering Earth set a new background for the story for the first time.
With 10,000 planetary engines pushing the Earth away from the solar system, under the guidance of the space station, humans are looking for new homes with the wandering earth.
2. Innovative hero image setting.
The earth is in a wandering encounter with a crisis that is about to collide with Jupiter. In response to this crisis, a joint command government was established around the world. At the time of the crisis, the Chinese rescue detachment, organized by civilians and professional soldiers, launched a call to people around the world.
3. Innovatively made a contradictory design that is no longer black and white.
In the film, after powerful calculations and analysis, the conclusion that the earth can no longer escape the destruction, the commander issued a command to the space station to abandon the earth with human genes to find a new home through the super-intelligent artificial intelligence system moss. However, Liu Peiqiang, a Chinese soldier who was played by actor Jing Wu in the space station, was unable to give up the earth with his own loved ones and many human beings. What should I do with the space station? The deep human destiny and the hero's self-sacrifice spirit have aroused the audience's strong emotional resonance.
Not only tells a good story, from the production level, Wandering Earth is also a conscience. As a sci-fi blockbuster, the audience saw a lot of unprecedented scenes for the first time.
In order to truly display these unprecedented scenes, the program group has made more than 3,000 conceptual design drawings, 8,000 sub-pictures, more than 10,000 items, and 100,000 square meters of real-life construction. Carriers, dungeons, space stations, engines, etc. These unprecedented things, the details are very delicate, and even the animation on each display in the space station is set.
Not only is the big scene, but the earth is also about to be destroyed under the crisis, the people's congress is in the extreme environment. For the best effect, when the Wandering Earth is filming, the actors' costumes are special armor, heavy and sealed. Breathing, these pose a big challenge.
In order to express the coolness of sci-fi movies, Wandering Earth also innovatively used a lot of stunts, a total of 2003 special effects shots, each one, the main creative staff are repeatedly polished. Director Guo Fan introduced that one of the shots of Shanghai's partial collapse was changed to the 251 version.
Adhering to "innovation" through big production, telling big stories and highlighting big feelings, Wandering Earth has been a great success. The sci-fi fever of The Wandering Earth has also brought about science fever. At the China Science and Technology Museum, Wandering Earth has been collected as the first sci-fi film, and a lecture on the scientific knowledge of Wandering Earth is held every week. At the same time, the popularity of Wandering Earth is also crucial to the development of the next science fiction film in China. Liu Cixin, the original author of The Wandering Earth said: "It has well established a trust in the face of Chinese science fiction and high-cost sci-fi movies."
For a long time, science fiction films are considered to be shortcomings of Chinese movies. Some attempts have been made, not too rough or too bad. Wandering Earth tells a good story with more mature production methods. This story has a great imagination, but it has the core of Chinese culture, which can arouse the emotional resonance of Chinese people and make foreigners feel good. Therefore, it is not accidental that it can win both the word of mouth and the box office. The success of Wandering Earth also proves that China is not able to shoot sci-fi blockbusters. The key lies in how to find the right direction and keep improving it. It is not a story, but how to carefully polish and tell a story.

Also, it is the fastest to break 3 billion movies. The fifth place in China's mainland box office is Wolf Warriors II, with a total box office of 5.683 billion, directed by Wu Jing, starring Wu Jing, Frank Grillo.The story tells of the future world. Because of the ageing of the sun, the expansion of the universe, the earth is about to be swallowed up. In order to survive, humanity begins a wandering journey. Wanting to push the Earth out of the solar system and going to a new home will cost 15 billion tons of thrust. This process is staggering. Finally, the "400 years of preparation, 100 generations of participation, 2500 years of lonely sailing" grand opening of the stray. This process is not peaceful and full of crisis. The first is because the sun shines, melting the glaciers, causing abnormal climate changes, flooding the city, and leaving the earth behind the sun, and because the temperature is too low, humans cannot survive. In order to survive, people try their best to move underground. Due to the limited space in the dungeons, the first crisis caused countless deaths.As Jupiter's gravity increases, the Earth is about to hit a huge Jupiter. If it happens, the Earth is about to collapse. Faced with such a steep test, can the lonely and erratic earth continue to exist? The Wandering Earth special visual effects lens shocked the audience and beautifully rendered the doomsday scene in the story. The ice, the flood, the surface collapse, the darkness of the space... create a wonderful journey of the universe. Looking up at the stars from the earth, let people see a wonderful and unpredictable space. This is the result of four years of work in the film production team! In addition to the wonderful special effects, the props in the film are also well-made, "God's blowtorch" - the planetary engine's reach is 11,000 meters, and the tyrannical visual impact is amazing. Of course, if there is only an advantage in special effects production, the film is not enough to conquer the hearts of the audience. It is mainly the emotional clues that run through it, making people feel the same. Wandering is for survival, and it must be done. In many Hollywood movies, sci-fi-themed TV dramas have the plot to face the end of the world, and this film shows the Chinese people's attitude towards this: we can wander, but never abandon our hometown! Even if the disaster comes, it cannot be changed, and it will fly away with our planet. In the film, in order to defend the homeland, in order to find a place to live, and to seek the home of the soul, the people on the earth have repeatedly sacrificed to overcome the danger. The story is in the name of wandering, but wandering is to find a home that can be settled. We fear nature, but we are not afraid of difficulties. We always go forward with hope. In the universe, even if it is as small as dust, we are unyielding and determined to move forward. Since the film The Wandering Earth was released on the first day of the Chinese calendar on February 5th, the box office has been counter-attacked with a strong reputation. The film was released on the first day of the box office of 188 million. From the third day of the show, it quickly climbed to the single-day box office. On the fourth day of the show, the box office broke through 1 billion. On the sixth day of the show, it broke through 2 billion at the end of the Spring Festival holiday. On February 14 On the day, the film successfully broke through the 3 billion marks and launched an impact on the box office record of the mainland film history. In the Chinese mainland film and television market, it can be described as a "zero breakthrough" and a "great leap" in Chinese science fiction movies. It fills a gap in the history of Chinese film for more than 100 years. Compared with Hollywood, the development of science fiction movies in China is still zero. The appearance of The Wandering Earth is not a step forward, but a pole vault.
