2023 Chinese film The Wandering Earth 2 (流浪地球2) continues in Pittsburgh through February 8.

The 2023 Chinese film The Wandering Earth 2 (流浪地球2), which opened in Pittsburgh on January 25, will remain here through (at least) February 8. A synopsis, from the distributor:
The much-anticipated prequel to 2019 sci-fi blockbuster THE WANDERING EARTH—the #5 highest-grossing non-English film of all-time—lands in North American theaters just in time for Chinese New Year.

In the near future, after learning that the sun is rapidly burning out and will obliterate Earth in the process, humans build enormous engines to propel the planet to a new solar system, far out of reach of the sun’s fiery flares. However, the journey out into the universe is perilous, and humankind’s last shot at survival will depend on a group of young people brave enough to step up and execute a dangerous, life-or-death operation to save the earth.
The movie was the highest-grossing film in China during the Lunar New Year holiday this month. It plays locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and tickets are available online.
