For the Chinese movie industry, the prime time for new releases is always the “贺岁档”(Hè suì dǎng, “New Year movie season”),  which runs from late November to early March.

The season includes major holidays like Christmas, New Year’s, Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day one after the other. People often spend more time at the movie theater with their families and friends than usual.

 As a result, the New Year’s movie season is when movie companies bring out their best works and compete with each other for the biggest box office draw. This is especially true during the long Chinese New Year holiday. 

At the height of the New Year’s movie season, take this quiz and see which new Chinese movie you should watch!
