Mainland-made movie Monster Hunt has become China’s highest-grossing movie ever with a take of RMB2.428 billion (US$381.2 million) thanks in part to its release during an annual 6-8 week “domestic film protection period” in which few foreign films are released, The Guardian reported, citing Variety.
