Netflix, the most popular online platform in the world, managed to significantly expand the audience by delivering large production Hollywood productions to its subscribers. However, what made Netflix the point it had reached today was to successfully publish local productions such as La Casa de Papel in the international arena.
In February, Netflix acquired the broadcast rights of China’s local production, The Wandering Earth. With a huge budget for local production, The Wandering Earth presented a science-fiction film that we were not used to seeing from China with 10 thousand special effects scenes and 2,000 special effects.
Netflix aims to increase the number of subscribers in China by adding The Wandering Earth to its library. Nevertheless, the company has made it possible for almost every subscriber to watch such great production by turning The Wandering Earth into 29 different languages and opening it in 190 countries. This development is very important for both Chinese cinema and Netflix.
Avengers: Like the Endgame or Captain Marvel, you may not have heard of The Wandering Earth. Nevertheless, the Wandering Earth is the third highest grossing film of 2019 when we set aside the Hollywood productions that have incredible budgets.
