There’s a new Detective Dee movie coming this summer of ’18 and I’m stoked. The Detective Dee movies with Tsui Hark at the helm have been the right popcorn period flicks the Chinese movie world needed after years of blah big budget boredoms. The original Detective Dee and the Phantom Flame with Andy Lau was solid but I preferred the younger sequel Detective Dee and the with Mark Chao stepping into the role of the younger version with Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon thanks to adding sidekicks to the cast including Lin Geng Xin and Feng Shao Feng. The arrival of the third movie in the franchise keeps the three male leads and adds new female lead Ma Si Cun in for Angelababy as the eye candy and joined by another male lead in Ethan Ruan. Check out the fun teaser below.
