Stephen Chow’s “The Mermaid” breaks China’s box office records


Stephen Chow is no stranger to success. His cult classic hits Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle are only a few films off his filmography. This year, he achieves an even greater milestone with his newest film, “The Mermaid,” which is recorded to have reached new box office numbers for a Mandarin-language film’s opening weekend.

The comedy, following a mermaid who falls in love with an evil business man whom she has been sent to assassinate, is estimated to be the first to reach a $400 million weekend release.
