"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," the fourth film in the series that tells the magic stories of the pupils at Hogwarts school, is expected to become a box office leader in China.

"Without question, the box office will reach 80 million yuan (9.86 million dollars), and quite possibly, 100 million (12.33 million dollars)," said Weng Li, general manager of the film exhibition and distribution arm of the China Film Group, a Chinese distributor of the film.

The Hollywood blockbusters, "Star Wars Episode III" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith", have taken in 75.42 million yuan (9.3 million dollars) and 62 million yuan (7.64 million dollars) respectively in China since this june.

No imported film has surpassed the 100 million yuan mark since 2002.

The "Goblet of Fire" generated an estimated 408 million US dollars worldwide after just ten days in theatres, reported the film's distributor Warner Bros. on Sunday.
