THE WANDERING EARTH IS CURRENTLY 2019’S TOP GROSSING MOVIE
To date, The Wandering Earth has grossed over $600 million worldwide. For context, it has doubled the second highest-grossing film of 2019, Crazy Alien, which is also a Chinese production. It's only in third where you get Western films: Glass, with How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Alita: Battle Angel not far behind.
Last year, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War grossed over $2 billion worldwide, becoming the fourth highest-grossing film ever produced. Meanwhile, China actually surpassed North America for the first time as the world’s largest box office market, at least during the year’s opening quarter. The Wandering Earth's massive success marks yet another big moment for the Chinese movie industry.
