Last but not least, a short preview of the movie industry. Box-office records have been regularly broken of late, especially with domestic releases. In 2012, domestic films set two records, first with The Painted Skin: Resurrection, and the second time with Lost in Thailand. The upcoming Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons is set to top these two.
So, which Chinese movie is going to be 2013's ultimate winner? It could well be a surprise hit, but given movie-making's unpredictability, it is safer to bet on old horses.
Feng Xiaogang's Tailor-Made (Siren Dingzhi) takes him back to the familiar ground of comedy, and with a script by Wang Shuo, perhaps China's answer to J.D. Salinger, it could be the thinking man's slapstick favorite. Superstar Vicky Zhao may well become the next debut director to enter the billion-yuan club. Her upcoming look at youth is said to pack a punch.
