In this publicity image released by Pegasus Motion Pictures, Xu Zheng, left, and Wang Baoqiang run in a scene from "Lost in Thailand." Xu, the director, writer and star of China's biggest box-office hit, says "Lost in Thailand" succeeded by showing a rarely seen subject: modern Chinese life. The historical epic, fantasy, action and thriller genres have long filled China's domestic movie screens. But "Lost in Thailand" was a low-budget and light-hearted road-trip tale about an ambitious executive who goes to Thailand to get his boss' approval for a business deal. Along the way he's pursued by a rival co-worker and encounters a wacky tourist who helps him rethink his priorities. (AP Photo/Pegasus Motion Pictures)
