Trivia

Originally scheduled to premiere June 15, 2019, but called off one day earlier, citing 'technical difficulty', with premiere date unannounced. Media argued the cancellation was due to producers' lack of political sensitivity. This year marked 70th anniversary of Communist Party victory against the Nationalists, while the movie depicted Nationalist bravery instead of praising Communists. The producer company's stock price also fell by 8% the day the premiere was called off. See more »
