Action movie "Wolf Warrior II" was the most popular domestic movie with Chinese audiences in the past two years, according to a survey conducted by the China Film Archive, which was published Monday.

It was followed by "The Founding of an Army," a domestic film depicting the Chinese revolutionary war, and "Mr. Six (Lao Pao Er)," a drama about street gangs in Beijing.

Twelve out of the top 20 films were released in 2017, indicating the growing quality of the domestic film industry and a more mature market, said the survey

"Wolf Warrior II" was also the country's highest-grossing film ever, raking in 5.68 billion yuan (875 million U.S. dollars) in ticket sales.
