Domestic comedy "Lost in Thailand" has made a new record at the Chinese box office.

It has become the first Chinese movie to gross over 300 million yuan in its first week of release.

Viewing numbers last Saturday alone reached over 2.5 million, surpassing records set by "Titanic 3-D" and "Transformers 3".

The film stars Xu Zheng, Wang Baoqiang and Huang Bo, whose characters meet on a trip to Thailand, where a series of funny events unfold on their journey.

Director Xu Zheng also invited popular actress Fan Bingbing to guest in the film as a surprise to viewers.

The director explained, "Everybody thinks Fan Bingbing is just a symbol in the film. But when she actually appears at last, it will highlight the movie. This is also unexpected to the audiences."

"Lost in Thailand" is a sequel to an earlier film, "Lost on Journey", which was directed by Wai Man Yip in 2010.
