Usually when Hollywood tries to Save the Planet, they do it by saving only a few in a special ship. Well this is CHINA .. they decided to MOVE the ENTIRE PLANET!
The Wandering Earth is basically a movie about Earth's defenders battling against a horde of...
RAMPAGING ONLINE PIRATES! WHAAAAATTTTTT?!
Well I guess you can say that it's a creative idea right(?) We haven't seen much of pirates other than 'Pirates of the Caribbean' anyway...
However, the movie seems to be facing a far tougher enemy than rampaging online pirates...cause Pirated copies of the movie seems to be eating its way into ticket ratings.
For a movie that is making over RM1.3 Billion in ticket sales, the vicious pirating industry has been killing the value of a movie ticket down to about RM0.60!
So sad to say, rather than celebrating the fact that The Wandering Earth has broken box office, the production team with their legal firm are spending a large amount of energy to complaining to authorities about piracy and blocking pirated copies.
Well on a positive note, many viewers have called this movie a new dawn for Chinese Sci-Fi cinemas. Least these "online pirates" have good taste in movies..
