Mumbai, October 27 - China's war epic film "The Battle at Lake Changjin" has become the highest-grossing film of 2021 worldwide. It surpassed fellow Chinese film "Hi, Mom" ($848 million or 5.41 billion yuan) to reach the top spot with $883 million or 5.64 billion yuan at the Chinese box office.

"The Battle at Lake Changjin" also becomes the second highest-grossing Chinses film and also the 2nd highest-grossing non-English film of all time after "Wolf Warrior 2" (2017), which grossed 5.69 billion yuan. Released on September 30, the box office monster is inching towards becoming the top-grossing non-English film ever.



Among the top 5 highest-grossing films of 2021, 3 films are Chinese while two are Hollywood films. "Hi, Mom" is at number 2 with $848 million followed by "Fast & Furious 9" (F9) at 3 with $716 million, "Detective Chinatown 3" with $686 million, and James Bond "No Time To Die" with $526 million.

"The Battle at Lake Changjin" is reportedly China's most expensive film ever made with a production budget of approx $200 million. It is directed by A-list Chinese filmmakers Chen Kaige, Hark Tsui, and Dante Lam and produced by Bona Film Group and state-backed film companies Shanghai Film Group and Huaxia.

The film, which stars China's most-in-demand actors Wu Jing, Jackson Yee, Zhu Yawen, Li Chen, Hu Jun, and Duan Yihong, glorifies Chinese sacrifices and heroism during the real-life battle in 1950 that took place at the eastern front in the second battle of the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea.
