China Box Office: 10 Highest-Grossing Movies of All Time

"Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons" (Stephen Chow, 2013) $ 166.8 million

Hong Kong comedy actor-director Stephen Chow first established a cult following in mainland China with his 1990s adaptations of the same classic Chinese novel that serves as the basis of Journey to the West. Those popular early efforts—the A Chinese Odyssey series—are nothing compared to Journey in financial terms though. Even though Chow doesn't appear in this effort, Journey passed the 1-billion yuan threshold ($160 million) in China in just 16 days, four fewer than Lost in Thailand took to reach that milestone—which serves as something of a marker for definitive blockbuster status in China.
