Well, it looks promising. This is made by Tencent, right? The casting seems okay, apart from 常伟思's voice and older 叶文洁's makeup.

I was relieved to hear that Netflix acquired the rights to adapt the books. I tried to watch 流浪地球, twice, but couldn't finish it. Remove the dazzling visual effects and there's nothing left but bad acting and ridiculous dialogues. My friend and I agree that 吴京 (the astronaut) is a disaster. He delivers his lines in such a way that is more suitable for poetry recital and vividly reminds me of the 60s movies. So, this Tencent series couldn't be worse than that, or could it?

Looks awesome.  I'd also like to see a Netflix trailer to compare!

 

Having both a Netflix and a Tencent version competing will be interesting.  That almost never happens, someone usually gets exclusive rights.  Also, one will be presenting the story from a more "Chinese" point of view vs. one with a more "Western" point of view, so that'll create plenty of drama on the internet too.

 

I don't know anything about the track record of Tencent productions.  D&D (the showrunners) did a really good job with the early seasons of Game of Thrones, when they had an existing script to work off, so I'm hopeful. 

 

Less said about D&D in the later seasons of GoT the better :)

Yes, Tencent. I thought the cinematography was pretty solid and really did a good job bringing the scenes from the book to life. 雷达风 looks exactly how I imagined it, as do many of the other scenes. As for that other movie…Best to forget about it lol.

You two are right, it ultimately did get picked up by Netflix. D&D did a fantastic job with most of GOT, it only really got bad in the last 2 seasons, and even then season 7 still had some memorable moments. As you said, 三体 is a complete work, so they should be able to do a really solid job with it. I blame GRRM for a lot of went wrong. He clearly didn’t have a clue how he was going end the series and just threw some spaghetti at the wall in the form of “advice” to D&D. I’m really getting sick of these guys who can’t write a proper ending—Patrick Rothfuss I’m looking at you. Maybe we can hire Brandon Sanderson to finish all of these series 😂😂😂

Hear, hear. I've read the books and I want my money back. I genuinely think GOT is one of the rarer cases where a screen adaptation is an improvement over the original work (another one I can think of is perhaps The Shawshank Redemption).

This is exactly why I have so much respect for Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan. The man knew he couldn’t finish it and did the right thing by finding a replacement. GRRM has ruined his legacy by not being able to finish, and I feel that way about any artists who hook their audiences with tons of promises and then fail to provide payoffs. 
 

Shawshank was an amazing movie, but I never read the book so I’ll have to take your word for it 😁
