The action war film “Wolf Warriors II” has become the top grossing film ever released in China in less than two weeks.
Wu Jing stars in and directs the film about a Chinese soldier who stumbles into an African war zone and saves dozens of lives from western mercenaries. Frank Grillo, Celina Jade, Wu Gang and Zhang Han co-star.
In just twelve days, the film has pulled in a whopping $506 million and has dominated the box-office not just in China but on the global charts too – easily holding the title of the highest grossing film in the world for the past two weekends.
The film has been described as a “unapologetic, muscle-bound, head-breaking, bull-ridden” piece of entertainment. It overtakes previous record holder, Stephen Chow’s “The Mermaid” which opened last year.
“Wolf Warriors II” was released day and date in North America by Well Go USA and has grossed $1.10 million to date.
