SKYFIRE Trailer (2021)
Skyfire (Chinese: 天·火; pinyin: Tiānhuǒ) is a 2019 Chinese disaster action film about a volcanic eruption at a resort. It is directed by Simon West, written by Wei Bu and Sidney King, and stars Wang Xueqi, Hannah Quinlivan, Shawn Dou, and Jason Isaacs. The film is China’s first big-budget disaster film, and producer Jennifer Dong expressed hope that it would be a “breakout film” for the genre in China the way The Wandering Earth was for science fiction.
Though originally scheduled to be released in July 2019, it debuted in China on December 12, 2019, and ranked #1 at the box office on opening day.
The costume for the movie was designed by Vera Chow. The helmet design for Hannah Quinlivan was provided by the Indian Fashion Studio The V Renaissance.
The movie was intended to be the first film in a trilogy.
Two versions of the movie were filmed, one in Chinese and one in English, but a member of the production team said that the acting was more natural in the Chinese version and thought that the English version would not be used.
