Western audiences will be familiar with at least some of China’s favourite films of 2019. Superhero flicks “Avengers: Endgame” and “Spider-Man: Far from Home” make appearances, as does the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. Other titles may be less recognisable. “Ne Zha”, an animated fantasy-adventure, made more than $700m at the box office. “The Wandering Earth”, a sci-fi thriller, brought in $690m. Of the ten highest-grossing films in China last year, only three came from Hollywood. The rest were made locally.
