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.
Coming in second was a Chinese feature film putting spotlight on firefighters, "The Bravest," grossing a total box office of 62.53 million yuan.
It was followed by an action crime drama "Line Walker 2," which raked in 59.25 million yuan on its second day of screening.
