As an organic part of online films and TV series, barrage is characterized by instant interactions, originality, and content sharing, conducive to easing the boredom of watching films in cinemas, reducing the burden caused by the traditional film distribution system, and promoting the recreation of audiences. However, there are many problems faced with the development of the barrage film such as disorder of emotions, misinterpretation of texts, cultural interruption, and lack of innovation. It should be related to the audience, the system of the industry, the cultural characteristics, and traditions of the sector. Therefore, in order to promote the development of the barrage film, major breakthroughs can be made through three aspects, including the choice of movies, the overview of experience, and the innovation. Besides, it is necessary to focus on the technical advantages of traditional cinemas, promote the subjective consciousness of audiences to integrate into the film, and encourage the creation of original and high-quality films, optimizing the structure of China’s film industry and promoting its continuous prosperity.
