How to Train Your Dragon 2 soared to the top of the Chinese box office over its four-day mainland opening.
Knocking kungfu romance drama, White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom, off its perch, Dragon 2 took off with over $26 million.
White Haired Witch fell to fifth place over the weekend, just a week after topping the domestic box office. Still, the Fan Bingbing-led film has so far earned over $61 million.
Canadian action flick Brick Mansions continues to clutch second-place in its third week. The actioner, which is also late American actor Paul Walker's last movie, has so far earned about $28 million at the Chinese box office.
Historical disaster drama Pompeii, which opened last Friday, took third, while domestic title Brotherhood of Blades took fourth, earning a total of just over $12 million since opening on August 7.
