SHANG­HAI: A Chi­nese ac­tion film that de­picts the coun­try’s sol­diers sav­ing war-rav­aged Africans from Western bad­dies soared to be­come China’s all­time top box-of­fice earner yes­ter­day, head­lin­ing a sum­mer of patriotic cin­e­matic fare.

Wolf War­riors 2 boasts the omi­nous tagline “who­ever of­fends China will be hunted down no mat­ter how far away they are”, and mil­lions of Chi­nese cinema-go­ers have lapped it up since the movie’s re­lease less than two weeks ago.

The block­buster has raked in more than 3.4 bil­lion yuan (RM2.1 bil­lion) since de­but­ing on July 27, ac­cord­ing to un­of­fi­cial China box-of­fice track­ers
