"Interstellar" was another successful re-release from Warner Bros., eventually grossing 121 million yuan. Combined with its previous earnings in China in 2014, the film's total takings now stands at 876 million yuan. Christopher Nolan's ninth feature film achieved global popularity, not only touching on the mysteries of the universe but also making them relatable through a parent-child relationship. While many of Nolan's films play out like a spectacular mind game, utilizing time almost as a protagonist, the sci-fi production in "Interstellar" made for a rarer, deeply moving spectacle and vaulted it to become his highest-grossing film in China. Besides "Interstellar," Nolan's new film "Tenet" as well as a re-release of "Inception" (grossing 33.79 million yuan) also hit the Chinese market in 2020 back-to-back. The frequency of Nolan's releases in China led some moviegoers to joke that last year's "Christopher Nolan season" was singularly being used to revive the market.
