BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese animated film "Ne Zha" continued to dominate the Chinese mainland box office on Monday, its eleventh day of screening, the China Movie Data Information Network said Tuesday.
The domestic full-length animated feature grossed 163.28 million yuan (about 23.43 million U.S. dollars) on Monday. Its total box office reached over 2.51 billion yuan, making it the highest-grossing domestic animated film.
Telling the story of Nezha, a beloved Chinese mythical figure, the film features a daring overhaul of Nezha's appearance and depicts him more as a mischievous boy instead of the hero kid in previous cinematic works.
"Ne Zha" was followed by a Chinese feature film putting spotlight on firefighters, "The Bravest," and domestic comedy "Coward Hero," which raked in 88.36 million yuan and 7.68 million yuan, respectively.
"Ne Zha" and "The Bravest" took in nearly 93 percent of the daily total box office.
