After witnessing the superabsorbent gold capability of Marvel's superhero action movie, Warner Bros., DC, is also eager to establish and expand the DC universe, but DC has always had a rapid success in the layout of universe without sufficient preparation and expansion.
Marvel's latest masterpiece of "Avengers 3" finally won a box office of 2.4 billion in China. At the end of last year, DC also released the film "Justice League" which is a superhero "group fight", and finally only have 690 million yuan at the domestic box office.
The accomplished Neptune Arthur Curry is actually a "ridiculous group" role in the world of superheroes. "At the preparation stage, I've noticed that Neptune has been ridiculed for a long time in the world of superheroes," director Wen Ziren said in a foreign media interview. "But I'm not going to dodge this. I want to focus on this subject, so make all the super-cool ridiculous points."
Wen Ziren seems to have achieved it again. The "King of the Seas" released last Friday swept the fog of the Chinese box office in November, and showed at the box office and word of mouth. After the release of "Neptunus" in mainland China, it took only 17 hours and 25 minutes to break the box office, with box offices breaking 200 million yuan in one day, and box office in the three days closed close to 600 million yuan. In the watercress collected by Wenqing, it seems to be particularly good for "Neptune". The current result has exceeded 8 points, while the previously released "Poison" is only 7.3 points.

Even if you meet him on the streets of China, it is estimated that this is the Hollywood director who has mastered so many hero stories: he is not tall, his body is small, his face is still childish. Wen Ziren, who is 41 years old this year, is a Chinese from Malaysia and at age 7 immigrated to Australia. This propaganda "Neptunus" Wen Ziren said he was "going home" for the first time.
"I am Chinese, but I was born abroad. I am very excited to return home and I am very happy to bring my most proud work to China and to share it with my family!" According to The Global Times reported that Wen Ziren felt a lot at the release of the new film.
Although he has not lived in China, Wen Ziren is very fascinated by Chinese movies. Some netizens commented that the story of "The Sea King" is "Agarwood Save the Mother + Sun Wukong troubled the East China Sea Dragon Palace + Super Hero to save the world," which also received the "official certification" of the director.
"I've heard a lot of Chinese stories in the process of growing up. I like Journey to the West since I was a kid.

Do not look at the age of Wen Ziren, but in Hollywood, he already has the title of "master", especially with the series "Saws of the Chainsaw", "The Soul", "Dead" and other low- among the principal directors.

But the energy of Wen Ziren is much more than that. In April 2013, Global chose Wen Ziren to film "Speed and Passion 7". At that time, some people questioned, can a horror film director be able to control this commercial blockbuster? In the end, Wen Ziren returned to the box office of $ 1.5 billion, costing $ 250 million.
A horror film director who is good at creating an atmosphere and pinching the hearts of the public can also let audiences enter the world of superheroes. Wen Ziren proved that I'm not the only guy who makes horror movies.
With the success of Speed and Passion 7 and Sea King, I hope this Chinese director may have more space in Hollywood.
