Chinese adventure fantasy film 'Mojin: The Lost Legend' has earned over 400 million yuan just two days after its release, breaking three records in China's box office history.

The film is recognized as the highest-grossing domestic 3D film for a midnight screening.

It has earned a record 171 million yuan in ticket sales for the opening day, and surpassed 'Monster Hunt' to enjoy the single-day box office champion with 230 million yuan.

Adapted from popular adventure novel series 'Ghost Blows out the Light', or 'Gui Chui Deng in Chinese', the film features the adventure of a trio of legendary grave robbers.

Director of the film, Wu Ershan says he has designed triple obstructions in this treasure-hunt film, to make it more appealing to audiences.

"Firstly, it's the external resistance, such as tomb gimmicks and mysterious conundrums, which can display the confrontation between human and the surrounding environment. Second is the resistance from antagonists, who pursue the same goal with the hero but shares totally different values. Thirdly, it's the inner-struggle and self-contradiction of the hero. All these three barriers can make the film more rich and appealing."

Produced by Chen Kuo-fu, the film has gathered some of China's A-list stars, including Chen Kun, Huang Bo, Xia Yu, Liu Xiaoqing, Shu Qi, and Angelababy.

Besides China, 'Mojin: The Lost Legend' has also been released in the US, Canada and Australia on December 18th.
