BEIJING, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- "Midway," an American war film centering on the 1942 Battle of Midway, led the Chinese mainland box office for a second consecutive day on Tuesday, according to the China Movie Data Information Network Wednesday.

The Battle of Midway between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy marked a pivotal turning point in the Pacific Theater during World War II.

"Midway" generated nearly 14 million yuan (about 2 million U.S. dollars) in the market on its fifth day of screening, bringing its total Chinese mainland box office to 139 million yuan.

Domestic drama film "My Dear Liar" came second on the daily box office chart by grossing 13.58 million yuan.

It tells the story of an impoverished driver in southwest China who tried to cheat a streaming site anchor to marry him, but his real target was to get her life insurance money to cure his son.

"Better Days," a Chinese film that puts the spotlight on school bullying, took the third place with a box office revenue of about 11.65 million yuan on Tuesday.
