Detective Chinatown 3: Warner to Release Chinese Actioner

January 16, 2019–Warner Bros. has confirmed its wide specialty release of Detective Chinatown 3 in North America.

The film will reach U.S. theaters on January 24, coinciding with wide release handled by Wanda Pictures in China at the beginning of Chinese New Year.

The mainland Chinese-produced franchise movie is pitched as an action-comedy-mystery sequel that is once again written and directed by Chen Sicheng (“Detective Chinatown,” “Detective Chinatown 2”).

Wang Baoqiang and Liu Haoran reprise their roles as a mismatched crime-solving duo.

In the third chapter, the action shifts to Tokyo, after previous excursions to Thailand and New York.

Warner reports that it will open the film “in more than 150 theaters and limited IMAX engagements in major cities across North America, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Toronto and Vancouver.”
