Together, Operation Red Sea, Detective Chinatown Vol 2 and Monster Hunt 2 garnered approximately 10 billion yuan at box office, which demonstrates that the film consumer market shows maturity at the post era of "ticket subsidies". The up-and-coming directors sought breakthroughs in film genre by challenging with big-budget productions such as Till the End of the World and Animal World. The high quality films Dying to Survival, A Cool Fish, and How Long Will I Love You brought surprises to the audience. High-quality content has become the key to the growth of box office, and the return of rational creation drives the double harvest of acclaimed Chinese films in both word of mouth and box office double harvest, making these films a new highlight in the market. The non-box office consumer market has also received much attention, in which the development of high and new technologies has led to the consumption of film products in the form of audiovisuals in other media outside the theater.
