“Disney Animation’s “Zootopia” was the runaway winner at the Chinese box office over the weekend.

Topping the charts on each day, it scored $57.5 million between Friday and Sunday, giving a 10-day total of $110 million. Data from Ent Group showed the film scoring $25.5 million on Saturday alone.

Gods of Egypt,” acquired by Chinese firm Le Eco in a deal announced at the American Film Market in November, came a creditable second with $19.6 million over its opening three days.

The two Hollywood titles nudged aside “Ip Man 3,” the martial arts biopic which topped the chart last week, but whose box office reporting is now being probed by regulators. It earned $13.1 million in its second weekend – down from the reported $71.3 million in its first weekend – and stands on a 10 day cumulative of $112 million.

Stephen Chow’s “The Mermaid” slipped to a $3.7 million weekend in fourth place, but extended its record-breaking cumulative total to $517 million.

Behind it a gaggle of newcomers entered the chart but failed to score even $1 million. They included “Under The Bed” on $0.75 million; “Spicy Hot Love” on $0.47 million; “Judge Archer” on $0.45 million and “Wang Mao” with $0.15 million.
