The Chinese comedy "Finding Mr. Right" starring acclaimed actress Tang Wei raked in 70 million yuan (US$11.3 million) during its weekend debut.

Producer Jiang Zhiqiang said Monday (March 25) that the film earned 11 million yuan on March 21, the day it premiered, beating Hollywood blockbusters "A Good Day to Die Hard" and "Resident Evil: Retribution".

The film depicts a pregnant Chinese woman's romance with a divorced doctor who she meets in the U.S. where she tries to secure foreign citizenship for her child.

Insiders attributed the comedy's outstanding performance to its significant presence in domestic theaters, as the movie debuted on 28 percent of the country's screens.
