Chinese animated film "Ne Zha" continued leading Chinese mainland box office Saturday, grossing a total of 4 billion yuan (about 568.99 million U.S. dollars) in the 23 days since its debut, the China Movie Data Information Network said Sunday.

On Saturday alone, the highest-grossing domestic, animated film on the Chinese mainland earned more than 110 million yuan.

Loosely based on the tale of Nezha, a beloved Chinese mythological figure, the film features a daring overhaul of Nezha's appearance and depicts him more as a mischievous boy than the hero kid in previous cinematic works.

Coming in the second was "The Bravest," a Chinese feature film putting spotlight on firefighters, which grossed 44.25 million yuan Saturday.

Chinese crime film "Bodies at Rest," which focuses on two legal medical experts trapped in hijack, was ranked the third by raking in about 40.81 million yuan on its second day of screening.
