China's 2017 movie ticket sales rise 13.5%
BEIJING (AP) － China's total domestic movie ticket sales rose 13.5 percent in 2017 to 55.9 billion yuan ($8.6 billion), a state news agency said on Jan. 1.
The top-grossing title was the Chinese-made action picture "Wolf Warrior 2," which earned 5.7 billion yuan ($875 million), the Xinhua News Agency said.
China is the second-largest global film market and is narrowing the gap with the United States, where last year's domestic box office is estimated to have declined 2.6 percent from 2016 to $11.1 billion.
Chinese-made movies accounted for 54 percent of 2017 ticket sales, or 30.1 billion yuan ($4.6 billion).
The No. 2-grossing title was the Hollywood movie "The Fate of the Furious," which earned 2.7 billion yuan ($414 million).
