'Wonder Woman' captures the largest film market in Asia

Wonder Woman tops the Chinese box office in single-day takings among the recently released films.

Commenting on the new investment trend, An Ke, an industry analyst says: "Domestic movies have yet to raise their game, major Chinese financers are seeking collaborations with Hollywood."

Meanwhile, the major film review platforms and, two barometers of popularity in China, have given the movie directed by American director Patty Jenkins high scores of 7.4 points and 8.6 points, respectively.

For most Chinese fans, Wonder Woman marks a long-awaited triumph for DC, which has struggled to compete with its powerful rival Marvel.

DC Entertainment and Warner Bros launched its DC cinematic universe with the 2013 Man of Steel, a reboot of the Superman franchise and also the first movie in its ambitious project.

Following this was the 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

But both of them lost out to Marvel's Avengers.

But Wonder Woman is different, says Wang Xiaoyang, a film critic in Beijing.

"Unlike the previous two DC movies, it is charming and funny. It's so far the best superhero movie among DC's films of the extended universe."
