Smashing the Box Office
   2015-09-28 09:19:14    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Liu Ranran

 

As the second largest movie market after the United States, China saw its box office hit 4.6 billion US dollars in 2014 - a 36 percent jump year on year. While 55 percent of movies that grossed more than 100 million RMB last year were domestic productions, Hollywood blockbusters still dominated the Chinese market.

Transformers: Age of Extinction claimed the title of top-grossing film of all time in 2014, but has since been replaced by Furious 7, which grossed 376 million dollars this year.

Meanwhile, China added 5,400 movie screens last year, bringing the total number to 23,600. ItĄ¯s not surprising then, that China now accounts for one out of every eight box office dollars spent around the world each day - up from one out of every 125 a decade ago.
