    Pre-release

    The Demons Strike Back was made on a pro­duc­tion bud­get of 440 mil­lion yuan ($63.9 mil­lion) with an ad­di­tional 140 mil­lion yuan ($20 mil­lion) spent on mar­ket­ing (pro­mo­tion and ad­ver­tis­ing) materials. The film was highly an­tic­i­pated in China by both in­dus­try in­sid­ers and or­di­nary movie­go­ers and was pro­jected to emerge very suc­cess­ful at the box of­fice, partly due to the ro­bust de­mand and suc­cess of the first film.

    Theatrical run

    The film opened 28 Jan­u­ary 2017 and grossed over 345–360 mil­lion yuan ($50–52 mil­lion) on its open­ing day. Data from re­search group Ent­group showed that the movie had 103,065 screen­ings and reg­is­tered 8.7 mil­lion ad­mis­sions on Sat­ur­day, the busiest day ever at the Chi­nese box of­fice.

They called the col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark a "wor­thy fu­sion of two of the film world's most bril­liant stars" and praised the film say­ing, "it's got more imag­i­na­tion in one nim­ble limb than a Fast & Furious se­quel or a Star Wars pre­quel can lay claim to in their whole bat­tered chassis." The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter gave a mixed re­view, prais­ing the film for its ac­tion se­quences and spe­cial ef­fects, but crit­i­ciz­ing its screen­play, nar­ra­tion and weak char­ac­ter development.
