BEIJING, May 20 (Xinhua) — Chinese director
Zhang Yimou’s first spy film “Cliff Walkers” saw its cumulative revenue
hit 1 billion yuan (about 155 million U.S. dollars) on Thursday,
becoming the sixth film this year to achieve the milestone at China’s
box office.

Box office tracker Maoyan expects the critically acclaimed movie to
complete its run with earnings of more than 1.04 billion yuan.

Set in 1930s Harbin, northeast China, “Cliff Walkers” follows
Communist Party special agents as they test their wits against their
enemies to complete a secret mission.

It has been hailed by critics as not only a personal breakthrough for
the director in terms of film genre and narrative exploration but also a
breakthrough for new patriotic films in China.

China’s box office on Thursday was marked by the release of several
romance films, as the date May 20 that sounds similar to “I love you” in
Chinese is celebrated as an unofficial Valentine’s Day in the country.

Among these films, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” led the daily sales
chart as of 2 p.m. Thursday, accounting for about 44 percent of the
daily total, Maoyan data shows. Enditem
