Minions, beasts and galaxy guardians beware — the wolf is on your trail.

China’s unprecedented box office sensation, “Wolf Warrior 2,” is clawing up the 2017 box-office ladder, reaching fifth place globally after it surpassed “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Wonder Woman” this week.

Ahead of it on the list are four Hollywood blockbusters: “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Fate of the Furious,” “Despicable Me 3” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” But the Chinese action flick has been in theaters a mere six weeks, far less time than its American competition.
