Dreamworks' animated film "Kung Fu Panda" has raked in 135 million yuan in three weeks and become the first animation to surpass box office revenues of 100 million yuan in the Chinese mainland.

The Beijing Morning Post quoted Huaxia Films, Chinese distribution agency of "Kung Fu Panda", as saying the film made 38 million yuan in the first week in China and 58 million yuan in the second week.

No other animation has ever done so well in the first two weeks in this country, the report said.

The next question is whether this giant panda's box office revenue can exceed the 200 million yuan mark.
