Another Quick Tease For Tsui Hark's YOUNG DETECTIVE DEE: RISE OF THE SEA DRAGON
Tsui Hark's first Detetive Dee film, 2010's Mystery of the Phantom Flame proved a surprisingly effective combination of period martial arts, Sherlock Holmes-esque sleuthing and fantasy adventure. Three years later the Hong Kong veteran is back with a 3D prequel, the rather comically titled Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon.
Andy Lau has handed over the mantle of the titular snoop to Taiwanese hearthrob Mark Chao (Monga, So Young) and is joined by Angelababy and Feng Shao Feng. We've seen plenty of stills, but precious little of the film itself so far, and this new teaser expands only slightly on the last, boasting ominous underwater growling, fairly dodgy CGI galleons and still no sign of Detective Dee himself. The film opens in Hong Kong on 27 September, and China the following day.
