Twenty new Chinese films have been presented at a promotional event in Beijing.
"China New Movie Force" is an event initiated by CCTV's Channel 6 to promote Chinese films to see this summer.
This year's list of films includes "Hollywood Adventures", "I Am Somebody", "The Crossing", "Monk Comes down the Mountain" and "The Dead End".
Crime drama "The Dead End" won two major awards at the just concluded Shanghai International Film Festival.
The thriller follows three brothers connected to a murder case.
It's going to be released in Chinese theatres on August 27.
Other highlights at the event include the release date for new film "Forever Young," which is due for release on July 10th.
Talk show host Da Peng's first foray into film is being released on July 17.
The comedy is being called "Jianbing Man" after the popular street snack in Beijing.
Last summer saw Chinese films generate around 9-billion yuan (about $1.48 billion) in revenues.
Observers expect that figure could surpass 10-billion yuan (about $1.52 billion) this year.
