  'Zootopia' is off to a roaring start at the Chinese box office, with the Disney film crossing the $100-million mark after 10 days in theaters and gunning for the all-time record for an animated movie on the mainland.

  The tale of a mammalian metropolis has grossed a total of $112.6 million since its March 4 release, gaining steam after its opening weekend and pulling in $88 million in the seven days ending Sunday, according to data from film industry consulting firm Artisan Gateway.

 

  “Zootopia” has already become the third-highest grossing animated film ever in China, behind only DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” ($152.2 million), and the local Chinese production “Monkey King: Hero Is Back” ($147.1 million), Artisan said. (By comparison, "Zootopia" has earned about $142 million in the U.S. and Canada.)

  The opening weekend “Zootopia” coincided with allegations of box-office manipulation by the distributors of the martial arts film “Ip Man 3,” starring Donnie Yen and Mike Tyson. Authorities are now probing whether that movie’s box-office receipts were inflated by fake screenings and other maneuvers.
