Cloudy Mountain Is Out Now In UK & Ireland Cinemas!

Check out one of the best Chinese films of the year from the 8th of October in a cinema near you!

Cloudy Mountain (峰爆) is a 2021 Chinese disaster action movie directed by Li Jun starring popular TV actor heartthrobs Zhu Yilong, Huang Zhizhong, Shu Chen, Jiao Junyan, Cheng Taishen, and Wang Ge.

A peaceful town turns into hell when the movement of the Indian Ocean plate triggers a devastating earthquake there. Buildings start to crumble, and hundreds of people fall into sinkholes. A retired railway soldier Lao Hong (Huang Zhizhong)and his explosive demolition engineer son Xiao Hong (Zhu Yilong), go deep into a solution cave to rescue the trapped people. A second quake will come in a few hours. Will they be able to save 160,000 people and get out alive?

Director Jun Li was stuck in the United Kingdom for 7 months in 2020 because of the global COVID-19 outbreak. He used the time to dive into documentaries and study materials about natural disasters. His assistants then conducted field investigations around in China. Lee decided to shoot the film in various hard-to-reach places including the longest solution cave in Asia, which is over 240km long. A 1:1 tunnel was custom built for the shooting. Lee set a high bar of authenticity, not just of the sets and props, he also asked the two leads Zhu and Huang to go through an intense training period to ensure their free-climbing techniques look convincing and realistic. Cloudy Mountain is both a rollercoaster ride and an emotional father-son journey that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.

The film is currently released across 35 UK cinemas in 24 cities, find out how to book now. Here’s a little teaser to enjoy!
