Netflix Acquires Mainland Chinese Fantasy Film ‘Super Me’
International streaming service Netflix has actually obtained multi-territory streaming rights to approaching Chinese fantasy film “Super Me.” The story is an aspirational tale, integrating lucid dreaming and a rags to riches plot about a having a hard time film writer.
It was directed by Chong Zhang (“4th Wall”) and has a cast that is headed by Taiwan’s Darren Wang, along with Cao Bingkun, Song Jia and Wu Gang.
The film had its world best in the panorama section of the 2019 edition of the Sitges International Film Celebration, understood for its category and fantasy leanings. It was also picked for the competition area of the Paris International Fantastic Movie Celebration in 2019 and for competitors at the 2020 Brussels International Fantastic Movie Celebration.
But its hometown theatrical release, arranged for 2019, was canceled by the distributor. “Super Me” finally enjoyed its mainland China premiere recently and will now reach commercial screens in China on Friday.
Netflix, which did not verify an online release date, has actually gotten rights leaving out mainland China, the former-Yugoslavia territories and the Indian subcontinent. Rights sales are handled by Beijing- and Amsterdam-based Fortissimo Movies. Production is by Baima Film and Fortissimo’s parent company Hehe Pictures.
Netflix does not operate as a streaming service within mainland China. However in recent months it has actually accredited numerous mainland Chinese movies to reveal to international audiences. These consist of “The Yin Yang Master” a dream film that was among the big 7 tentpole titles during the Lunar New Year vacations, directed by Li Weiran and starring Chen Kun and Zhou Xun. It also licensed (again from Fortissimo) “The Yin-Yang Master: Imagine Eternity,” directed by Guo Jingming (“Tiny Times”).
