Domestic disaster film "The Captain" topped the Chinese mainland box office Friday, the China Movie Data Information Network said Saturday.

It grossed more than 58 million yuan (about 8.2 million U.S. dollars) on the twelfth day of its screening, and its total box office revenue has exceeded 2 billion yuan.

"The Captain" is a cinematic portrayal of a real-life event that occurred on May 14, 2018, when a captain of Sichuan Airlines managed a safe emergency landing and brought 119 passengers and nine crew members home safely.

Coming in the second and third are "My People, My Country" and "The Climbers," two domestically-produced films screened in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. The two films raked in about 50 million yuan and 20.05 million yuan, respectively.
