The domestic feature grossed 119.54 million yuan (about 17 million U.S. dollars) on Thursday, with total box office reaching over 3 billion yuan.

Telling the story of Nezha, a beloved Chinese mythical figure, the film features a daring overhaul of Nezha's appearance and depicts him more as a mischievous boy instead of the hero kid in previous cinematic works.
