Some 50 new movies will hit Chinese theaters by the end of August, taking the total number of releases in this season to 90.
As the summer hits China, the country is seeing a glut of films for one of the year's most profitable periods for the Chinese film industry.
Around 50 new movies will hit theaters by the end of August, taking the total of new releases over June-August to around 90, according to leading online pre-sale sites maoyan.com and gewara.com.
China's national college entrance examination, or gaokao, ended on June 8, which means students have three months off. And families and teenagers form a big part of the theater-going population.
Meanwhile, just like in past summers, domestic productions again dominate the lineup, squeezing Hollywood blockbusters out.
