In October 2015, the China Film Bureau launched a website providing official daily movie box office receipts
, previously a state secret.
This move was widely heralded
in the Hollywood press as being a positive gesture to counter fraud and provide greater transparency.
The aim of this website is to provide this information for the English-speaking world, in U.S. Dollars as well as Chinese Yuan Renminbi, and to collate the information into weekend as well as daily takings.
Box Office China provides up-to-date data when the information becomes available.
This website is currently in the Beta-stage of development, with more features and design improvements in the pipeline. Movie titles in English are from online posters, trailers and Wikipedia while the Yuan-Dollar rate is temporarily from Twitter.
