Watch a Trailer for Sci-Fi Smash Hit 'The Wandering Earth' from China
"This is not a simple rescue mission." You've heard about it, but have you seen any trailers? This actually looks fun. The Wandering Earth is an epic Chinese sci-fi movie, being compared to Roland Emmerich's save-the-world movies, that has become a huge box office hit - earning over $600 million in China alone, the second highest grossing movie of all-time there. If you're in America, you can already watch this as the movie has been released in theaters in the US as well. The Wandering Earth is about a future where all the people work to maintain giant engines pushing Earth away from our sun to join the orbit of another star 4.5 light years away. "Yet the 2500 years journey came with unexpected dangers, and in order to save humanity, a group of young people in this age of a wandering Earth came out boldly and fought hard for everyone's survival." Starring Qu Chuxiao, Li Guangjie, Ng Man-tat, Zhao Jinmai, Wu Jing, and Qu Jingjing. If it sounds cool, wait until you see the footage - it really does look like a spectacular blockbuster experience.
