Chinese movie-goers have been rushing from screen to screen during the New Year's Day holiday, as several domestic movies were released near the beginning of 2018.

From Youth, which was released half a month ago and topped the box office with one billion yuan ($150 million), to Miracles of the Namiya General Store which came out two days ago, domestic movies have been taking turns at the top of the trends on Chinese social media.

Among the new releases, Legend of the Demon Cat directed by Chen Kaige, one of China's fifth-generation directors, became the one with the most polarized comments online. While many hailed it as the best Chinese film of the year, there are also some calling it another one of Chen's recent "bad productions".
