The biggest movie in the world right now is not the latest Bond film No Time To Die or even Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
It's a Chinese propaganda film about the 1950s Korean War, centred on a story of Chinese soldiers defeating American troops despite great odds.
BBC News reports in just two weeks since its release, The Battle at Lake Changjin has made over $US633m at the box office.
This puts it far ahead of Shang-Chi's global earnings of $402m, and in just half the time.
It is set to become China's highest-grossing film ever.
Its success is good news for China's pandemic-affected film sector as Covid forced cinemas to shut and reopen multiple times.
