Over the past few years China has tried to change its reputation as merely an outsourcing post, to become creators of feature films in their own right.

In 2015 China released a couple of films that became unquestionable hits, albeit only in China itself.  'Monster Hunt' is a live action-animation hybrid about a monster child who is in danger from humans who hunt them.

A second film released soon after was 'Monkey King: Hero Returns', a full CGI feature.  It became the most successful Chinese fully CG film in history.

China have proved they've got what it takes to become a real contender to Hollywood.  Film companies and investors worldwide are now taking notice and doing their best to joint this fast growing movement.
