Lightbulb Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen tops Chinese box office

Michael Bay's robot blockbuster beats Titanic as China's highest-grossing film

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has powered its way to the top of the all-time Chinese box office with a haul of 400m yuan (35m) in its first four weeks of release.

The total carries it past 1998's Titanic, which made $52.7m in China, and is way ahead of the $44m taken by the previous instalment in Michael Bay's giant robot series, Transformers.

The success of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is partly due to the increasing number of cinemas in the communist state, which employs a quota system for foreign movies. Each year, only 20 or so films made outside China are allowed into the country, though Hollywood movies are distributed far and wide, via illegal DVDs.

The new Transformers film was given the green light due to an absence of similar fare at Chinese cinemas this summer, Variety reports. Another American film, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, which opened on 26 May, was also a significant box office hit, becoming the first overseas movie of the year to take more than 100m yuan in China. Sci-fi spectacular Terminator Salvation followed it shortly afterwards.
