To say that China has had its fair share of post-production hurdles on big scale feature film projects is an understatement if there ever was. Save for Yoozoo’s currently languishing adaptation of The Three Body Problem, there have been some successes, most recently with The Wandering Earth sci-fi garnering nearly $300 million dollars in its first six days with actor Wu Jing leading the cast.
With other large scale pics making headway like Jackie Chan fantasy The Knight Of Shadows and as we await the Louis Koo-led Warriors Of Future, blockbuster cinema is a challenge director Teng Huatao is also setting forth to meet following the 2017 launch of his new sci-fi, Shanghai Fortress. Hailing from HS Entertainment and Tencent Pictures, we now have a small teaser to help signal the film’s China release this summer.
Adapted from Jiang Nan’s 2006 novel of the same name, Shanghai Fortress is described as a sci-fi romance set in the year 2042 where Shanghai has become ground zero for Earth’s last defense against an alien invasion. Leading the cast are Lu Han and actress Shu Qi with Gao Yixiang, Shi Liang, Wang Sen, Sun Jialing and Wang Gongliang rounding out the cast.
