China's total box office sales surpassed 400 million yuan (about $64.4 million) on Saturday, a record for a single day, data from the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) revealed Sunday.

The biggest contributor was domestic fantasy-comedy Monster Hunt, which brought in 180 million yuan Saturday.

Jian Bing Man, a domestic comedy that tells the story of an actor's experience in the film industry, came in second, grossing 149 million yuan.

Monkey King: Hero is Back, the 3D animated adaption of the classical epic A Journey to the West , took in 62 million yuan to be the third biggest contributor on the day.

Total ticket sales on Saturday broke the 383-million-yuan record made on April 12, when Fast and Furious 7 opened on Chinese screens.
