About The Battle at Lake Changjin II (长津湖之水门桥) Movie:

The Battle at Lake Changjin II, also known as Water Gate Bridge the sequel to The Battle at Lake Changjin (2021).

It was commissioned by the propaganda department of the Chinese Communist Party as part of its 100th anniversary.

The Battle at Lake Changjin II was filmed back-to-back with the preceding film The Battle at Lake Changjin in early 2021. According to Bona Film Group president and producer Yu Dong, the film would “complete the story of the 7th Company and make people see why they are called the ‘steel 7th Company'”.

The production was led by the film office of the Publicity Department of the Chinese Communist Party.

Most of the film was shot in early 2021 with two crews, who shot for a combined total of 210 days. Some scenes were reshot at Hengdian World Studios in late 2021.

The film uses extensive special effects, including millions of RMB worth of white sand that was transported to Hengdian for use as fake snow. Actors also wore special makeup to simulate frostbite on the characters’ faces.

Actor Wu Jing said that the combat in this film was more difficult than in the preceding film.

On 13 January 2022, it was announced that the film would be released on 1 February (Chinese New Year) as a Chinese New Year film.

The film grossed over $626 million in China, making it the ninth-highest-grossing film of 2022.

It was released in IMAX theaters and formed part of IMAX’s second-highest-grossing Chinese New Year after 2021.

Yu Dong suggested in an interview that the production company might release a six-hour director’s cut combining material from both The Battle at Lake Changjin and its sequel.
