HONG KONG – “The Continent,” a nostalgic road trip movie, roared its way to the top of the Chinese box office charts on Thursday. It scored an opening day gross of $12.0 million (RMB74.0 million).
The super strong debut is another victory for a first-time film-maker hailing from a new generation of Chinese talent. It puts the film comfortably on course for an opening weekend in excess of $50 million.
The director is Han Han, a 1980s-born celebrity best known as a blogger, novelist and professional racing car driver. He also sings.
The film is the tale of three young men from an East Chinese island, who take a road trip and along the way fulfil some of their personal goals. Unsurprisingly the film features some race driving as well as helicopters and a yacht.
Released in a month when Chinese regulators are sheltering local films from fresh Hollywood competition, “The Continent” knocked “Tiny Times 3.0” off its recently acquired perch at the top of the box office.
