Two Chinese romance drama films, "Love You Forever," and "Wild Grass," are joining "Little Women," a new cinematic adaptation of American classic novel of the same name, for release on the Qixi Festival, which falls on Tuesday.

"Love You Forever" tells the story of a stubborn man who accidentally gains the ability to travel through time and attempts to use it to fix his love life.

"Wild Grass" stars actresses Ma Sichun, Zhong Chuxi and actor Huang Jingyu, and revolves around a group of young strangers bound together by destiny in their pursuit of a better life away from home.

All three of the films were previously scheduled for release on Feb. 14 but postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Qixi Festival, also referred to by some people as Chinese Valentine's Day, falls on every 7th day of the 7th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar. It celebrates the legend of the annual meeting between the mythological figures of the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl.

The past couple of days saw an increasing number of major films unveil their theatrical release dates for China amid the gradual recovery of the world's second-biggest box office market.

Driven by the robust sales of war epic film "The Eight Hundred," which was released on Friday, the daily China box office sales continued to rise over the weekend and on Sunday hit 250 million yuan (about 36 million U.S. dollars), according to data compiled by Maoyan, a movie-ticketing and film data platform.

The figure is a new high for the daily China box office receipts since movie theaters started to reopen on July 20 after months-long closures amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
