A teaser trailer for The Climbers was just released during the 22nd Shanghai Film Festival.

The Hollywood Reporter shared some details.

The actor, China’s reigning box-office king thanks to mega-blockbusters Wolf Warrior 2 and The Wandering Earth, bounded to the stage at a packed gala hosted by Shanghai Film Group to unveil the first official trailer for his next action spectacle.

The Climbers dramatizes the real-life expedition of Chinese mountaineers Wang Fuzhou, Gonpo and Qu Yinhua, who made a historic ascent up Mount Everest’s North Ridge in 1960. The Chinese team was the first to successfully climb Everest’s north side, which is known to be especially perilous. The trio famously left a small statue of Chairman Mao atop the summit before returning midway down the mountain to heroically rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the mission.

The filmmakers also unveiled the release date for The Climbers. The film has lined up a nationwide release on Sept. 30, prime positioning on the eve of China’s patriotic National Day holiday period from Oct. 1-Oct. 7, which is expected to generate a box-office bonanza.


Ziyi was still in Shanghai tonight to attend the 2019 Weibo Movie Awards. Her movie The Climbers won the award of the Most Anticipated Film while Ziyi accepted the prize of the Most Influential Actress.


Yesterday and today, the cast and the crew of The Climbers attended the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival. The director Daniel Lee, the producer Tsui Hark and the cast members Wu Jing, Hu Ge, Zhang Yi, Jing Boran and Ziyi walked the red carpet of the opening ceremony of the festival.

Earlier today, once again joined the cast and crew of The Climbers for a press conference during the festival.

A few videos of these two events were also uploaded.


We haven’t heard much about these two movies during the principal photography, but it seems the post-production on both Climbers and Godzilla vs. Kong just started.

The director Adam Wingard confirmed a few hours ago that the principal photography of Godzilla vs. Kong was now completed on his instagram account.

On April 8th, a crew member of Climbers annouced via his weibo that the filming had just wrapped in Tianjin and posted some selfies with the cast.


The Hollywood Reporter finally confirmed the participation of Ziyi in the Chinese blockbuster Climbers directed by Daniel Lee. She will star as the meteorologist alongside Wu Jing, Jackie Chan, Hu Ge and Jing Boran. The filming is currently underway and it shouldn’t be too long before we see some pictures of footages of the film.

The film will dramatize the real-life expedition of Chinese climbers Wang Fuzhou, Gonpo and Qu Yinhua, who made a historic ascent up Mount Everest’s North Ridge in 1960. The Chinese team was the first to successfully climb Everest’s north side, which is known to be especially perilous. The trio famously left a small statue of Chairman Mao atop the summit before returning midway down the mountain to rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the climb.


Alongside Wu and Chan, the two other climbers in the group will be played by popular young actor Jing Boran (Monster Hunt, Us and Them) and television star Hu Ge (Chinese Paladin, 1911). Actress Zhang Ziyi rounds out the star-studded cast as a Chinese meteorologist who assists the mission.
