The Top Chinese Grosser

So I guess cartoons continue to be profitable in various parts of the world.

“Monster Hunt,” the Chinese-made fantasy movie, has overtaken “Furious 7” to become the biggest film of all time at the box office.

According to an announcement by state news agency Xinhua, “Monster Hunt” has grossed RMB2.428 billion. “Furious 7” had grossed RMB2.426 billion, Xinhua said citing the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television. ...

And then there is Monkey King: Hero is Back, a Chinese animated feature which has made back its production and distribution costs several times over.

So the cartoon industry in the Middle Kingdom seems to be going rather well.

And certainly not out of the ordinary.

Of course the kind of stories these movies are dealing with are pretty well respected on their home turf otherwise.
