Wolf Warrior II Movie ‘Eclipses’ Record, July Monetary Data Boasts Strong Showing as Well
August 21, 2017
Not to be “eclipsed” by the top news in the US, China reported headline-grabbing figures of its own. Citizens did not need special glasses to view China’s Wolf Warrior II movie, which became the country’s top grossing film of all time after pulling in nearly USD 700 million in only 4 weeks. Other interesting data points include release of July’s monetary figures, which point to the success of deleveraging efforts. On a less positive note, China’s state media encouraged the undesirable position of backing North Korea if the US were to attack preemptively, a headline that Xi toned down after a phone call with President Trump.
