The Chinese box office this summer has reached 7.382 billion yuan (about $1.095 billion) as of Saturday, already surpassing the total revenue for the last summer movie season, said the China Film Administration.

The top earners include the Chinese sci-fi comedy Moon Man and the movie drama Lighting Up The Stars, which had raked in about 2.26 billion yuan and 1.69 billion yuan as of Friday, respectively.

The summer movie season spans three months until Aug 31, and in 2021, it received a total box office revenue of 7.381 billion yuan.

The country's film industry has seen a solid recovery from the COVID-19 impact with promoting measures afoot, such as distributing consumption coupons for moviegoers.
