(    09:46, October 03, 2019

Editor's Note: Highly anticipated films dedicated to the People's Republic of China's 70th birthday are gaining further momentum ahead of the National Day holiday. The seven-day window is considered one of the most lucrative periods for the box office – together with Chinese New Year holidays, Labor Day holidays and summer vacation.

Every National Day holiday typically features one or two well-acclaimed blockbusters. Moviegoers identify strongly with films that celebrate patriotism, heroism and China's extraordinary journey.

Wolf Warriors II in 2017 grossed a whopping 5.6 billion yuan ($786 million), setting a new record at the Chinese box office. Last year, Operation Red Sea topped annual rankings with 3.6 billion yuan ($506 million).
