About Born to Fly Movie:

Born to Fly is a Chinese military film set against the backdrop of the decades of modernization of the People’s Liberation Army Air Force. Directed by Liu Xiaoshi and produced by Han Han, the film stars Wang Yibo, Hu Jun, Yu Shi and Zhou Dongyu.

Born to Fly had completed filming in May 2022 and was slated to release on September 30, 2022 to coincide with China’s National Day on October 1. The film was shelved without public explanation, which sparked controversy both domestically and internationally.[5] In January 2023, exactly 100 days after it was shelved, the film released new promotional materials. A few days later a release date of May 2023 was announced, coinciding with the Chinese Labor Day holiday.
