London: Animation movie ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ got an overwhelming response in China - it raked in 11 million pounds on its opening weekend.
The film which features Po, a giant panda with a large appetite and burgeoning martial arts expertise, received a warm welcome in his "homeland" last month, according to Chinese reports.
"Kung Fu Panda 2" pulled in the highest opening weekend of all time in China by earning 125m yuan (11 million pounds). While the series is made in Hollywood, "Kung Fu Panda" has always been popular in China, reports gurdian.co.uk.
The first installment also broke box office records when it was released three years ago.
