Chinese drama "Tiny Times" knocked superhero blockbuster "Man of Steel" off the top of China's box office charts during the week ending on June 30.

After debuting last Thursday, "Tiny Times," which was inspired by author-turned-director Guo Jingming's young adult novel of the same name, raked in 273 million yuan (about $44.5 million) in the week, according to figures released by China Film News on Wednesday.

The film tells a coming-of-age story of a tight-knit circle of four girls who come from different familial backgrounds.

"Tiny Times" outshone Zach Snyder-directed movie "Man of Steel, " which took in 132.6 million yuan in the week.

"Badges of Fury," which features action star Jet Li, was third on the charts, making 114.8 million yuan.
