BEIJING - China's box office for January 2021 had topped 3 billion yuan ($468 million) as of Tuesday, a figure higher than that for the same period in the previous two years.

The market's earnings from Jan 1 to 26 amounted to 3.02 billion yuan, showed figures compiled by the China Movie Data Information Network.

The top earner, family drama "A Little Red Flower," contributed 35 percent of the market's box office for the period.

Released on New Year's Eve, the Chinese movie has dominated the weekly box office for four consecutive weeks, with revenue totaling about 1.3 billion yuan.
