The film THE MONKEY KING 3 (SAI YAU GEI NUI YI GOK)'s Mainland Valentine's Day shows went on sale and in an hour its box office already exceeded 100 million RMB. Although both THE MONKEY KING (DAI LAU TIN GUNG) and THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAM DA BAK GWUT JING) broke the 1.2 billion RMB mark at the box office, director Soi Cheang Pou Soi still was surprised but pleased.
Last year the Spring Festival box office reached 6.3 billion RMB, making the 2018 Lunar New Year box office even more of a battlefield. As for this New Year's 8 billion RMB new record target, Cheang Pou Soi said, "The Mainland market is large, its development potential is bottomless. As long as a film has a guaranteed quality, anything is possible."
