The new mainstream film that combines the spirit of the times and popular style will become the main force in the domestic film market in 2021, which shows that the main body, creators, and audience groups of my country’s film market have become more mature. A large number of new mainstream movies have risen strongly in 2021, winning both word of mouth and the market. This phenomenon has attracted widespread attention. The new mainstream movies are led by the main theme, presenting the trivial landscape of the mundane of great men, the civilianization of heroes, and the subjectivity of civilians, thus unfolding a vivid “Chinese narrative”.
According to data released by the National Film Administration, the total box office of my country’s movies in 2021 reached 47.258 billion yuan, of which the box office of domestic films was 39.927 billion yuan, accounting for 84.49% of the total box office. The total box office for the whole year continued to rank first in the world. Eight of the top 10 films were domestic films. Among them, “Changjin Lake” and “Hello, Li Huanying” broke into the top three of my country’s film history box office.
2021 is the first year after the epidemic has stabilized. Chinese filmmakers have overcome the adverse effects of repeated epidemics and returned to 74% of the box office before the epidemic and continued to rank first in the world, achieving good results in the “14th Five-Year Plan”. Start. Data show that the total revenue of North American movie box office in 2021 is estimated to be 4.5 billion U.S. dollars (approximately 28.69 billion yuan). Due to the ineffective fight against the epidemic, the North American film industry has to struggle to survive. The box office of North American films, including the United States and Canada, is far below the total annual revenue of $11.4 billion in 2019.
No. 1 at the box office, the number of screens, and the domestic movie box office occupying the mainstream position… China is already a veritable movie power. Excellent domestic film works continue to create excellent box office results, which is the outstanding feature of my country’s film market last year. “Changjin Lake”, released on the National Day file, became the box office champion of my country’s film history with a box office of 5.772 billion yuan (as of the end of 2021). This film presents the heroic scenes of the war in all directions. Through the highly impactful pictures, it reproduces the heroic cause of the Chinese People’s Volunteers in defending the country. From the pre-shooting to the post-production of this film, the total number of staff has reached a staggering 12,000, which fully demonstrates the strong strength of the current film industry in my country.
The new mainstream film that combines the spirit of the times and popular style will become the main force in the domestic film market in 2021, which shows that the main body, creators, and audience groups of my country’s film market have become more mature. A large number of new mainstream movies have risen strongly in 2021, winning both word of mouth and the market. This phenomenon has attracted widespread attention. “1921”, “Revolutionaries” and other films dedicated to the centuries of founding the party, or panoramic or close-ups reproduce great historical moments; the spy film “Above the Cliff” directed by Zhang Yimou, sings the communists on the hidden front; “Chinese Doctor” pays tribute to all retrogrades The anti-epidemic heroes on the expedition pay tribute to the magnificent fight against the epidemic.
The new mainstream movies are led by the main theme, presenting the trivial landscape of the mundane of great men, the civilianization of heroes, and the subjectivity of civilians, thus unfolding a vivid “Chinese narrative”. New mainstream movies continue to innovate in themes, styles, production techniques, etc., attracting audiences of different age groups into the theater. The new mainstream films involve spy films, action films, disaster films, suspense films and other themes and styles, gradually breaking the barriers between the main theme film and the commercial market, and leading Chinese films to new heights.
China has made a firm start on the road to becoming a movie power, and there is still a lot of room for the development of Chinese movies. “The writers are the tools of the Tao”, culture is the spiritual lifeline of a nation, and literature and art are the clarion call of the times. As a carrier of culture, film has an important function of carrying social morality and actively promoting cultural construction and the prosperity and development of literature and art. To become a movie power, China needs to continuously improve the level of film industrialization, and more importantly, it needs to show new responsibilities in casting the soul of Bacon, and show the new atmosphere of Chinese movies with its self-improvement and virtuous cultural creation.
On the road to becoming a film power, the majority of film workers must continue to explore and summarize the basic creative laws of the new mainstream film. It is important to start from the individual, to listen to effects and shared value, to respect the characteristics of commercial film styles such as strong genre and diversification, and to make mainstream films show a richer family and country sentiment and expand a broader market territory.
The vitality of contemporary China is changing with each passing day, and the times have provided an unprecedented broad stage for the prosperity and development of my country’s film industry. Literary and artistic creation is arduous creative work that requires dedication and long-term work. Only when the film workers put in their hard work can they tell the Chinese story well and show the world a credible, lovely, and respectable image of China. Performance depends on strength, image depends on shaping, and benefit depends on quality. Only by continuous hard work can Chinese films show their cultural confidence and feelings of a big country more and more freely, and move towards a new height of film power with a broader vision and wider influence. .
The 2022 Spring Festival is coming, and the battle for the film Spring Festival has begun. At present, more than a dozen films have been set for the Spring Festival of 2022, covering various types such as comedy, plot, war, and animation. The new year, new movies, new touches, and Chinese movies that are synchronized with the times will surely breathe and share the same destiny with the people, and will surely play a more important role in strengthening the people and inspiring the national spirit.
