The Oscar-winning sci-fi and fantasy film, directed by James Cameron, raked in around 58.11 million yuan (8.97 million U.S. dollars) on its second day of the re-issue in the country, surpassing the domestic comedy hit "Hi, Mom" which had topped the box office chart for 25 straight days, according to figures from the China Movie Data Information Network.
