I have watched a lot of blockbusters this year-a James Bond movie and two Marvel movies (so far). However, none of them are the fourth largest in the world this year. A Chinese film called “The Battle of Changjin Lake” took the cake.
The box office of the Battle of Changjin Lake exceeds 600 million
“Battle of Changjin Lake” is the fourth most successful film in the world in 2021. This Chinese film maintained its stronghold in the Chinese box office and set a new record. Since the end of September, the film’s box office revenue has reached $600 million. The box office data of this Chinese movie is ahead of Marvel’s new movie “The Legend of Shang Qi”. After all, the Marvel movie made 402 million US dollars, which is 200 million US dollars less than the battle of Changjin.
“Changjin” is a movie about Chinese heroism at the beginning of the Korean War. This epic film is co-directed by Chen Kaige, Lin Dante and Tsui Hark. In addition, it is considered to be the most expensive film ever produced in China, with a budget of more than 200 million U.S. dollars. The movie is starring action hero Wu Jing and 20-year-old rising star Jackson Yee.
The following are other well-known brands on Box Office
So far, other movies that have surpassed “Changjin” in world ratings in 2021 include “Detective Chinatown 3”, “F9” and “Hi, Mom”. Chinatown Detective 3’s total revenue was US$686 million, while F9’s total revenue was US$717 million. However, “Hello Mom” topped the cherry list with an amazing global sales of $822 million.
Last weekend, “My County, My Parents” had a gross box office of 19.6 million U.S. dollars and a total box office of 182 million U.S. dollars. However, the United States gave the new James Bond a boring response because “No Time To Die” made $56 million. In addition, the global box office revenue of the new version of Godzilla vs. King Kong was US$468 million.
