BEIJING – A Taiwan blockbuster finally hit movie screens in China on Saturday after a two-month delay.

"Cape No. 7," which tells of the modern-day romance between a Taiwanese singer and a Japanese publicist, features some Japanese actors and dialogue.

Media reports in both Taiwan and China said director Wei Te-sheng was scheduled to meet the audience in a Beijing cinema on Saturday to promote the movie.

Some Beijing newspapers on Saturday recommended the film as suitable for a Valentine's Day date.

"Cape No. 7" took in 530 million dollars (15 million US) in Taiwan last year, making it the island's highest-grossing Chinese-language film of all time.
