Thai movie Bad Genius was officially screened in China today. The production team also released several posters and materials behind the scene on the same day.

Bad Genius's performance at box office on the first day was very good. It is expected to raise another film frenzy after Golden Week national holiday. Before the first show in Chinese mainland, the film was shown in Thailand, China's Hong Kong and Taiwan with no negative feedback.

After topping the annual box office in Thailand, the film has set a new record by Thai films in Taiwan and topped the box office for two consecutive weeks in Hong Kong. It has also got good ratings on major film review websites, such as 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, 8.3 points on IMDb and 8.5 points on China's douban. The movie has been called "a must-see film in October" by internet users and film critics.

Bad Genius, which is based on a sensational cheating case of 2014, tells a story of how talented people exploit their skills to help others cheat in exams and get high profits.

The film's theme and conception together with social and educational issues are presented in a totally new way. Some audiences even said that the film was better than any Hollywood film they had ever seen.
