"Ne Zha," a Chinese animated film, continued to lead the Chinese mainland box office on Saturday, the China Movie Data Information Network said Sunday.

The film raked in about 224.72 million yuan (about 32.66 million U.S. dollars) on its second day of screening, accounting for nearly 67 percent of the daily total.

The fantasy film follows the birth and growing up of Ne Zha, a mythical male figure created in ancient China who is widely known as the incarnation of a lotus. He is often depicted as a young hero standing on two flaming wheels in Chinese legends and literature such as the literary classic "Journey to the West."

It was followed by "Looking Up," a Chinese family drama, which grossed about 45.18 million yuan and had topped the Chinese mainland box office for eight straight days since its release on July 18.

"The Bravest," a China-produced film telling the story of firefighters, took third place with a daily box office revenue of about 20.32 million yuan in presales. Enditem
