The Chinese box office this summer has reached 7.382 billion yuan (about US$1.095 billion) as of Saturday (August 13), already surpassing the total revenue for the last summer movie season, said the China Film Administration.

The top earners include the Chinese sci-fi comedy Moon Man and the movie drama Lighting Up The Stars, which had raked in about 2.26 billion yuan and 1.69 billion yuan as of Friday, respectively.

The summer movie season spans three months until August 31, and in 2021, it received a total box office revenue of 7.381 billion yuan.

The country’s film industry has seen a solid recovery from the COVID-19 impact with promoting measures afoot, such as distributing consumption coupons for moviegoers.
