Hollywood sci-fi monster film "Rampage" continued to lead the Chinese box office, earning a total of 658 million yuan (about 105 million U.S. dollars) as of late Sunday, according to Maoyan, a major film database in China.

Released in China on April 13, the film tells the story of primatologist Davis Okoye, played by Dwayne Johnson, fighting together with George, a giant silverback gorilla, to stop giant monsters from destroying the world.

Second place went to "21 Carats," a domestic romantic comedy, with a box office of 57.17 million yuan since it hit Chinese screens three days ago.
