China's National Day box office to see new patriotic anthology
BEIJING, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Following "My People, My Country" in 2019 and "My People, My Homeland" in 2020, China's National Day box office is set to welcome a third patriotic anthology film this year.
Titled "Me and My Father's Generation," the upcoming China Film Co., Ltd. production is set for release on Oct. 1, 2021, according to an announcement made via the film's official Weibo account.
It adopts the storytelling technique of collective creation -- one film containing multiple stories by different directors -- similar to the previous two movies. The three films have been collectively called a National Day patriotic film "trilogy" by social media posts.
The star-studded film is jointly directed by Wu Jing, Zhang Ziyi, Xu Zheng and Shen Teng -- all big names in China's movie industry -- who also play the leading roles.
Both "My People, My Country" and "My People, My Homeland" achieved huge market success, grossing 3.12 billion yuan (about 480 million U.S. dollars) and 2.83 billion yuan respectively. Enditem
