The film elbowed out "The Jungle Book," which headlined the country's box office for two weeks. The American fantasy picture is currently the third top grosser Disney film in China, coming in behind "Zootopia" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron," according to the Screen Daily.

Meanwhile, "Yesterday Once More" secured the third spot with 65.6 million yuan ($10.82 million). The campus romance film was released on April 22.

Local films "Phantom of the Theater" and "Miss Partners" seized fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

Completing the long weekend's top 10 films are Universal's "The Huntsman: Winter's War," "Xuan Zang," Hong Kong action-comedy "Buddy Cops," Korean romance-comedy sequel "My New Sassy Girl" and action sequel picture "London Has Fallen," the Screen Daily reported.

Directed by Xue Xiaolu, "Finding Mr. Right 2" narrates the story of a public relations agent at a Macau casino and a real estate agent based in California, both finding themselves crossing each other's paths.

"They start to write to each other coincidentally for a book and then gradually fall in love," wrote China Radio International.

Despite its name, "Finding Mr. Right 2" is not a continuation of its predecessor. The 2013 film introduces Jiajia, who is pregnant with her rich boyfriend's child, and Frank, a divorced doctor working as a cab driver in the U.S. They meet in Seattle, which is a reference to the movie "Sleepless in Seattle."

This film also starred Wu and Tang as lead characters and grossed almost $85 million.
