Six Chinese movies raked in about 6.38 billion yuan ($1 billion) in total just a week after their release on the first day of Spring Festival, according to box-office tracker Maoyan.

Maoyan's data show that as of Thursday at 5 pm Detective Chinatown 2's box-office take was 2.06 billion yuan, Monster Hunt 2's was 1.77 billion yuan, Operation Red Sea's was 1.37 billion yuan, The Monkey King 3's was 629 million yuan, Boonie Bears: The Big Shrink's was 448 million yuan and The Faces of My Gene's was 96.8 million yuan.

On the first day of Chinese New Year, total box office receipts of Chinese movies reached 1.26 billion yuan, an increase of about 56 percent over the same day in 2017.

Monster Hunt 2 took in more than 540 million yuan on the first day, breaking the single-day box-office record of Fast and Furious 8's 488 million yuan.

According to Maoyan, theaters in third- and fourth-tier cities drew the most crowds during Spring Festival.

As one of the longest national holidays, Spring Festival provides time for audiences to attend the cinema. Many movie theaters have been constructed in third- and fourth-tier cities in recent years, providing more movie screens for patrons to choose from.
