(Beijing) – Since its debut on December 12, the low-budget comedy Lost in Thailand has earned 1.2 billion yuan at the box office, making it the most profitable film ever in China.
In the month since it opened, a record 38 million cinema-goers have viewed the movie, a story about three men who visit Thailand. This means the film has had more Chinese viewers than the most popular Hollywood blockbusters to hit the country, Transformers III and Avatar.
