Persuasive Intent
Set in a near-distant future, The Wandering Earth Project was created in response to humanity learning that the Sun was 100 years away from burning too hot, killing all life on Earth. The film is about the early years of mankind's voyage from the Solar System to Alpha Centauri, bringing the Earth with them. The film follows Liu Peiqiang, an astronaut working on a space station used to pilot the planet, and his son, Liu Qi, on Earth who he hasn't seen in 17 years. When a sudden spike in Jupiter's gravity begins to pull Earth into its atmosphere, these two are stuck on the frontlines of saving the world.

The film is based on a short story by Hugo Award-winning author Liu Cixin (often published as Cixin Liu) and went on to become China's 2nd highest grossing film, as well as the highest grossing film internationally in early 2019.
