China Box Office : ‘Battle at Lake Changjin’ Crosses $750M, Becomes Second-Biggest Film of 2021

The film's monster performance is the third biggest total in Chinese box office history, with the film expected to ascended into second place next week.

The film is co-directed by A-list Chinese filmmakers Chen Kaige, Hark Tsui and Dante Lam, and it’s believed to be China’s most expensive film ever made, with a production budget of over $200 million. Local action hero Wu Jing (Wolf Warrior 2) and 20-year-old rising talent Jackson Yee (

The black and white art title had trouble holding its own against the tentpoles, however, opening with just $2.3 million. Maoyan expects the title to finish with just under $4 million.

Next weekend, all attention in China will be directed towards Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated tentpole sci-fi adaptation ofDune. The film is produced by Legendary Entertainment, owned by Chinese real estate conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group, which also operates China’s largest cinema chain. The film will get a strong domestic marketing push courtesy of Wanda, but it also arrives at a time when interest in imported Hollywood movies is somewhat on the wane.
