Here’s a list of films scheduled to premiere on CNY (February 16th). Which film(s) are you looking forward to most?
Detective Chinatown 2 唐人街探案2
Director: Chen Sicheng
Cast: Wang Baoqiang, Liu Haoran, Xiao Yang
Chinese New Year is coming up, and that means some of the year’s biggest blockbusters will be coming. Watch out for a post on all the films premiering, but for those of you in U.S./Canada, here’s a list of films you might catch near you. I’m pretty sure all of these will also show in Australia, and a few in the U.K. Go on the distributer’s sites to find more about whether they’re playing at a theater near you.
A Better Tomorrow 2018 英雄本色2018 – Jan 19
Monster Hunt 2 捉妖记2 – Feb 18
The Ex-File 3: The Return of the Exes 前任攻略3：再见前任- now
Youth 芳华 – now
Till the End of the World 南极绝恋 – Feb 2
I’m going to guess that they’re also going to pick up Chinatown Detectives 2 唐人街探案2 as well, but there has been no official announcements.
Goldbuster 妖铃铃 -now
The Monkey King 3 西游记之女儿国 – TBD
Operation Red Sea 红海行动 – TBD
In my honest opinion, the new trailer for the much-anticipated sequel to Monster Hunt looks like an underwhelming mess, though I do hope I can eat my words when it premieres on February 16th.
Tony Leung plays an unlucky gambler who travels the realms with Benben, and the two find a new companion in Huba, who had left the demon world to look for its parents Jing Boran and Bai Baihe.
