A series of domestic video game films are in production. They include Onmyoji, adapted from the namesake Netease game about a ghost hunter, and The Legend of Sword and Fairy, which has a hit TV series led by stars Hu Ge and Yang Mi.

Meanwhile, some Chinese filmmakers seem to have learned lessons from Hollywood and Japan when it comes to the game-movie combination.

Chen Hongwei, deputy head of Tencent Pictures, says the studios' adaptations will focus on building connections with audiences.

Zhang A'mu, president of Giant Pictures, the film subsidiary of Shanghai-based game publisher Giant Interactive Group Inc, tells The Beijing News that a video game-adapted movie should make film content its priority.
