The maiden directorial project of comedian and actress Jia Ling saw its cumulative ticket sales reach 5.04 billion yuan (776 million U.S. dollars) as of Saturday evening.

The 2017 action-adventure film "Wolf Warrior 2" is currently topping the all-time box office chart covering all films ever screened in China with a total revenue of 5.69 billion yuan, according to data compiled by the China Movie Data Information Network.

"Hi, Mom" hit theaters on the Spring Festival on Feb. 12, and led China's 2021 box office chart.

The comedy stars Jia as a devoted daughter who, deeply saddened by her mother's accidental death, finds herself transported back to 1981, where she meets her mother and attempts to improve her fate using ideas from the future.

It received the highest rating among all the seven Spring Festival films. Box office tracker Maoyan projected it would complete its run with total sales of 5.3 billion yuan.
