— by Wang Wei: In the four months since the Chinese film “The Wandering Earth” opened in theaters, it has held a prominent spot in the country’s box office. The movie has raked in 4.7 billion yuan (nearly 700 million U.S. dollars) and won top honors at the recent Beijing International Film Festival. Its director Francis Guo has also become a household name across China.
With “The Wandering Earth” honored at the 9th Beijing International Film Festival, Francis Guo solidified his position as a major director in China’s flourishing film industry.
Guo spent almost four years making the breathtaking space drama, which surprised many film critics as few had expected a Chinese sci-fi flick with such impressive production value.
But for Guo, the sci-fi genre has been a dream since his high school days.
