China tops U.S. at the box office for first time

China has beat the U.S. for the first time in monthly box office sales, effectively stealing the spotlight.

Chinese moviegoers also love foreign films”Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which was shot extensively in China, was a smash success.

But it remains a tricky place for foreign filmmakers. Chinese regulators only allow 34 foreign films to be show in theaters each year, limiting access to the latest Hollywood blockbusters. Approved films still face the heavy hand of government censors, who cut anything the Communist Party considers offensive or subversive.
