A lack of big openers heralded the slowest week at the Chinese box office for five years for the period April 15-21.

Hong Kong anti-corruption thriller P Storm held on to the weekly crown with ease for the third straight week as well as the daily crown for 18 consecutive days, adding $20.3m for $105.9m after three weeks on release.

Storm - Franchise - Popularity - China - Film

The Storm franchise is gaining popularity in China, with each subsequent film grossing better than the one before. This fourth installment has already outperformed all of its predecessors. It is now the eighth biggest film overall and the fourth biggest local film (behind three Chinese New Year titles) in 2019 so far.

India’s Andhadhun held steady in second place with $12.8m for $41.6m to date. The black comedy revolving around a murder has become the third biggest Indian film in China, behind Dangal and Secret Superstar.
