Official Press Release: As the sun dies, humans desperately try to propel Earth to a new solar system, leaving the fate of humankind in the hands of a few brave individuals in the sci-fi action-adventure THE WANDERING EARTH II, debuting on Digital May 9 from Well Go USA Entertainment. The much-anticipated prequel to 2019 sci-fi blockbuster The Wandering Earth—the #5 highest-grossing non-English film of all-time—returns with the same director, Frant Gwo, and returning stars starring Wu Jing (Wolf Warrior 2) and Wang Zhi (Drug War), along with new cast members Li Xuejian (Home Coming), Ning Li (Myth of Love), the legendary superstar Andy Lau (Infernal Affairs), Zhu Yanmanzi (The Guilt series), Sha Yi (My Own Swordsman), and Zhang Yi (Wolf Pack).
Official Synopsis: In the near future, after learning that the sun is rapidly burning out and will obliterate Earth in the process, humans build enormous engines to propel the planet to a new solar system, far out of reach of the sun’s fiery flares. However, the journey out into the universe is perilous, and humankind’s last shot at survival will depend on a group of young people brave enough to step up and execute a dangerous, life-or-death operation to save the earth.
Wu Jing is a phenomenal talent in action cinema and here he tries something a little different as he tackles on massive mother of a science fiction adventure that rivals anything that America has to offer today or in year’s past. The Wandering Earth II is a visual spectacle to be had and serves up sweat inducing theatrics like no other. If you fancy disaster epics on another level, this is one Action-Flix Approved flick that should be at the top of your viewing list!
THE WANDERING EARTH II has a runtime of approximately 173 minutes and is not rated.
