The best films at the cinema this week

A selection of the best movies currently screening in Beijing

Having topped the Chinese box office for a third week in a row, body-swapping sports comedy Never Say Die is now officially the highest grossing comedy in Chinese history (the record for best-selling film of all time is still being comfortably held by Wolf Warriors 2). An unexpected sleeper hit, Never Say Die follows the story of UFC fighter Aidisheng and journalist Ma Xiao who are forced to team-up and work together after unexpectedly exchanging bodies. An entertaining comedy along the lines of The Hot Chick and It's a Boy Girl Thing, Never Say Die is your mind-numbing, guilty pleasure of the week.

You can book tickets for all general release films – usually at least 50 percent cheaper than walk-in prices at the cinema – through Time Out Tickets. Click on the film you want to see, choose your seat and pay via card or WeChat – it's as easy as that. See here for a full list of all the movies in Beijing theatres.
