However, movies tailored for the young are limited, Zhang added.

"Unlike the old generation, post-80s and 90s young people tend to see funny and relaxing films for entertainment," said Cao Peixin, an associate professor at Communication University of China.

Romantic comedy "Breakup Buddies," about a recently divorced man who goes on a road trip with his best friend, has benefited from the change in tastes, with more than 1.15 billion yuan in box office sales since it debuted in Sept 30.

However, people do not need to grieve epic dramas and historical movies, and artistic value should not be overlooked. "After all, good movies will stand the test of time," Cao added.
