"One Night Surprise," a romantic comedy starring Fan Bingbing and Aarif Lee, took in 96.9 million yuan last week, placing third on the charts.

"Unbeatable," a Hong Kong film directed by Dante Lam, came in fourth. It debuted on Aug.16.

Theaters nationwide received nearly 15 million viewers between Aug. 12 and 18, with total box office sales of approximately 500 million yuan, down nine percent from the previous week.
