Storyline


China's cinema box office for the five-day Labor Day Holiday has exceeded the 1 billion yuan (154.2 million U.S. dollars) by Monday, according to statistics.

The country's Labor Day holiday has always been regarded as one of the most lucrative times for the domestic film market. This year, the holiday is being observed from Saturday to Wednesday.

A total of 13 new titles have been released during the holiday, offering a wide range of genres, including romantic comedy, spy, thriller and animation.

Romantic drama "My Love" topped China's box office chart on Sunday, raking in 127.1 million yuan (around 19.7 million U.S. dollars) on its third day of screening.

The earning of this movie accounts for 34 percent of China's daily box-office sales, which totaled 423 million yuan on Sunday, the second day of the five-day May Day holiday, according to data from the China Movie Data Information Network.

It was followed by "Cliff Walkers," a spy genre film directed by renowned Chinese director Zhang Yimou. The film pocketed about 103.9 million yuan on Sunday.

Other films which have made significant gains are thriller "Home Sweet Home", crime-action film "Break Through the Darkness," which tells the story of China's fight against organized crime, and the Hong Kong-based crime thriller "Money Empire".

The film ticket price falls comparing with the Spring Festival holidays, with multiple movies' ticket price below 40 yuan. The box office during the Labor Day holiday kept growing from 2015 to 2019. Chinese-made movies turned to have better sales and to be more attractive among audience during these years.
