The winning films from Chinese New Year remained on top of the Chinese box office in their second normal weekend of release. Locally-made sci-fi film “The Wandering Earth” advanced its score to $557 million.

“Wandering Earth” earned $88.8 million between Friday and Monday, according to data from Asian film industry consultancy Artisan Gateway. That was more than half of the $160 million aggregate for the entire market.

“Wandering Earth” surpassed “Avengers: Infinity War on Saturday to become the highest grossing Imax release ever in China. Earning an additional $7.2 million from 603 Imax screens over the 4-day weekend, the Imax cumulative for the film now stands at $43.7 million in China, and $44.7 million globally.
Crazy Alien” was unchanged in second place. It earned $25.8 million over the weekend, and advanced its 13-day cumulative to $292 million.

I have to admit that I find box office reports for domestic Chinese films suspect. I cannot help but think that the Chinese government manipulates the numbers to make it look like the demand for domestic Chinese films is greater than it really is.
