Stephen Chow's adventure comedy "Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons" has concluded its theatrical run, and has become the second best-selling Chinese movie of all time.

The movie has raked in 1.245 billion yuan (about US$200 million) through its screening.

Chow's 3-D action comedy, based on the classic Chinese novel "Journey to the West", follows the adventures of a young demon hunter.

The film took in 80 million yuan when it debuted on February 10, the biggest opening ever for a domestic film.

However, the movie failed to break the total box office record held by Xu Zheng's "Lost in Thailand".

"Lost in Thailand", a low-budget comedy which debuted in December, has earned more than 1.26 billion yuan.
