歸功于Well Go，中國大片《哪吒》（Ne Zha）在美國上映
We've been covering the phenomenal performance of Chinese animated feature Ne Zha in the country for the past few weeks, and now, we're happy to report that the movie was released in the U.S. on August 29 by indie distributor Well Go USA Entertainment. The film played exclusively in 3D Imax Theaters on that date, and got a nationwide expansion on Sept. 6. Ne Zha has earned over $555 million in China and is the biggest animated release and the second biggest theatrical release of all time in that country.
過去幾周，我們一直在報道中國動畫電影《哪吒》在中國的出色表現。現在，我們很高興地宣布，這部電影已于8月29日由獨立發行商Well Go USA Entertainment在美國上映。該片于9月6日在3D Imax影院上映，并很快拓展到全國范圍內的播放。《哪吒》在中國的票房已超過5.55億美元，是中國有史以來最大的動畫電影和第二大院線電影。
Produced by Beijing Enlight Pictures and written and directed by first-time feature filmmaker Yang Yu (aka Jiao Zi). The pic is described as a fresh take on a well-known work of classical Chinese mythology. It centers on a son of the gods who finds himself a feared outcast because of a divine prophecy that he will bring destruction to the world. He faces a choice between good and evil in order to break with the prophecy and become a hero. The movie has struck a chord with audiences, as it has scored 9.7/10 on the ticketing app Maoyan.
Among Well Go's other recent releases are Lee Chang-dong's Burning, Zhang Yimou's Shadow and Yuen Woo-Ping's Master Z: The Ip Man Legacy.
