China is such a large market that they can produce blockbusters that are hardly shown in the rest of the world. There are 4 Chinese movies, so far in 2018, that has performed better than the first foreign movie on the list (Avengers: Infinity War). 2 of them looks particularly interesting.
«Hello Mr. Billionaire» is based on the book «Brewster’s Millions» by George Barr McCutcheon. This book has been made into a Hollywood movie before with Richard Pryor and John Candy in the lead roles and several times before that as well.
Dying to Survive (original title: Wo bu shi yao shen) has a score of 8.2 of 10 on IMDb and the story seems interesting. «A story on how a small drug store owner became the exclusive selling agent of a cheap Indian generic drug against Chronic Granulocytic Leukemia in China.»
