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

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
It’s been so long since I’ve loved one of Jane Zhang’s theme songs, and this one is a work of genius.
The theme song to the eponymous film Land of Beauty 西游记女儿国 combines probably the two most beautiful love poems depicting the conflict between earthly love and eternal salvation, one told from the woman and one from the monk’s perspective, to create this beautiful duet.
