The following is the original text of director Teng Huataos apology microblog:
In the past, there were movies that the audience did not like, but most of them criticized the movies. Today, some netizens said that Wandering Earth opened a door of Chinese science fiction, and Shanghai Fortress was closed again. It is really very sad. This is not only not satisfied with the film, but also frustrated expectations of Chinese science fiction film. As a director, I have an inescapable responsibility. Im really sorry, because I believe nobody wants to close the shining door. As a director, I didnt take you farther along this road, but I know everyone is trying to move forward. I know that not all efforts are rewarded, but I will not stop trying because there is no reward this time. Thank you to all the actors. Thank you for accompanying me and promoting this film in all cities in such an environment of public opinion. Thank you investors. The movie cost you money, but no one jumped out to accuse me and comfort me in turn. Thank you to all the audiences who like this film, and Im very gratified that you can see a little touching in the story, although I know that this film is still imperfect in one way or another. Thank you all for your criticism. Look at the comments all the way. The criticism is the most. Thank you for saying so. Its hard, but its a person who hasnt done a good job. Ill remember how it feels. Hope that in the future, also hope that Chinese science fiction movies can become better and better.
