Editor's Note: Despite the "cold winter" theory stemming from the lackluster start of 2019, China's film industry has come through with a chain of homegrown blockbusters and impressive revenues. On Dec 6, the Chinese annual box office crossed the mark of 60 billion yuan ($8.53 billion) — 24 days earlier than the previous year according to China Movie Data Information Network. At present, 78 pictures exceeded 100 million yuan ($14.22 million), and among these 15 grossed over 1 billion yuan ($142.2 million) and 6 over 2 billion ($284.5 million). In the last fortnight of 2019, highly-anticipated films like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Ip Man 4 will be screened in the Chinese mainland. So the annual box office total is waiting to be unveiled. Eight of the top moneymakers are domestic productions, such as the phenomenal Ne Zha, the sci-fi saga The Wandering Earth and romantic crime coming of age film Better Days. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the … [Read more...] about Year-ender: 10 highest-grossing films of 2019
Besides being the opening lines to the Red Dwarf theme, this is the setting I find myself in as I delve into No Man’s Sky, the epic space exploration game developed by independent studio Hello Games for the PlayStation 4 and PC. The game’s key premise is simple yet appealing — namely, you’ve got a vast universe to explore, discover, name planets and creatures in, trade, fight, and generally fulfil your fantasies of being a dashing space explorer. While the internet is chock-full of first impression reviews, I figured it was better to spend a bit of time with No Man’s Sky and see how the magic of a procedurally generated universe holds up after you’ve visited more than a handful of planets. The game opens with you and your damaged spaceship stranded on a planet and the galactic equivalent of roadside assistance nowhere in sight. You have to get yourself up and running as part of the extended tutorial, mining resources to refuel and repair your ship, … [Read more...] about No Man’s Sky has come under fire from angry gamers, but is it really that bad?
That’s why The Outer Worlds, developed by Obsidian and published by Private Division for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and (in the future) Nintendo Switch, has been generating a lot of hype. It’s a role-playing game (RPG) where you are a colonist headed for the far-off Halcyon system in the 23rd century. Your colony ship’s drive malfunctions and you arrive 80 years later, with the colony’s Board of Directors deciding to leave the ship — and its inhabitants — on ice at the outer reaches of the system because it’s politically inconvenient for the ship to suddenly show up after being thought lost. The Halcyon colony is a great setting with an appealing aesthetic.Source:Supplied Renegade scientist Phineas Welles has other ideas and breaks into the ship, thaws you out, and enlists your help in saving the colony — which is in far worse shape than anyone imagined. The lift pitch for The Outer Worlds is essentially “Fallout in space, with … [Read more...] about The Outer Worlds review: The new game you are going to love
Numbers matter. Hence China matters. Experts say by 2020, China will be the world’s largest cinema market, with box office revenue hitting $15.5 billion by 2023. China is also forging tie-ups with film industries from Nigeria, India, the U.S., and Canada.But the Chinese delegation that is at the IFFK 2019 says it is not numbers but China’s urge to reach out and expand culturally that is behind its interest in cinema collaborations.Open“Our policy has changed over the years. We are becoming open and are looking for ways to cooperate with others and incorporate the positives in our society,” says Xing Xinyan, head of the Chinese delegation of filmmakers and researchers including Zhang Song, Fu Jing Sheng, Xie Fie, and Liu Jiun.The five-member delegation’s visit to the IFFK is to extend a helping hand to Indian films that need restoration, says Mr. Xinyan. “China’s long and deep roots with India make it easier to make cultural tie-ups. We would … [Read more...] about A neighbour looks for cinematic tie-up
