The Current Cinema - John Snadden suggests we get ready for DETECTIVE DEE: THE FOUR HEAVENLY KINGS (Tsui Hark, China, 2018).

Good news for fans of Chinese fantasy / martial arts cinema with the arrival at the end of this month of DETECTIVE DEE: THE FOUR HEAVENLY KINGS. 
Mark Chao
This is the latest Tsui Hark directed pic in this series. I thought the previous film YOUNG DETECTIVE DEE AND THE RETURN OF THE SEA DRAGON was one of the best Chinese movies in recent years and Hark's best effort for a long time. 
Carina Lau

Taiwanese star Mark Chao returns in the title role and Carina Lau is again the Empress who might or might not be working for the good of the Chinese people (how topical is that?). Fans of Hong Kong pop culture of the 1990s might get an enjoyable kick from the film's title.
