Wolf Warrior 2 Wins the Summer Box



Domestic action movie Wolf Warrior 2 has made a heat at the box office, generating strong word-of-mouth with high occupancy rate since its release on July 27th.


Starring Jason Wu as Leng Feng, a former Chinese Special Forces operative, it tells the story of Leng’s mission to transfer Chinese emigrants in Africa’s war-torn regions.



The total box office revenue is estimated to reach more than 3.8 billion yuan, a new record for the world’s largest film market, according to Maoyan, a major film database in China.



On July 30, Wolf Warrior 2 won a new single-day box office record at 360 million yuan. The film’s action scenes, featuring underwater kung fu, gun fights, car chases and tank battles, along with a hand-to-hand brawl between Leng and a supervillain, provides the audience with stimulating experience like any James Bond or Jason Bourne series.



It is reported that the film is inspired by real events. China’s actions of evacuating overseas Chinese from conflict-ridden countries such as Yemen and Libya have been applauded by the international community in recent years.


Additionally, since 2008, over 80 Chinese Navy vessels have patrolled the Gulf of Aden and waters off Somalia, ensuring the safety of more than 6,000 domestic and foreign ships.



To be noted, the film received standing ovations by Chinese nationals in some Canadian cinemas. Many moviegoers expressed their patriotic feelings after watching the film.
