RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Edifier is proud to have been chosen as the sole provider of headphones for the prequel to the blockbuster film Wandering Earth which grossed $701 million worldwide, was China’s fifth highest-grossing film and the fifth highest-grossing non-English film of all time.
