Four Clips From Tsui Hark's DETECTIVE DEE
Tsui Hark's Detective Dee And The Mystery Of The Phantom Flame goes into limited theatrical release on September 2nd in the US and we've got four new clips from the film to whet the appetite.

A period epic from genre master Tsui Hark (Seven Swords), DETECTIVE DEE is an action-packed, visually breathtaking Sherlock Holmes-style mystery starring some of China's top acting talent: Andy Lau, Bingbing Li, Carina Lau, and Tony Leung Ka-fai. Nominated for Best Special Effects at the 2011 Asian Film Awards and stunningly choreographed by master Sammo Hung, this intricately plotted whodunit is set in an exquisitely realized steampunk version of ancient China.

On the eve of her coronation as Empress (Carina Lau, 2046), China's most powerful woman is haunted by a chilling murder mystery: seven men under her command have burst into flames, leaving behind only black ash and skeletal bones. Recognizing this threat to her power, she turns to the infamous Dee Renjie (Andy Lau, Infernal Affairs, House Of Flying Daggers): a man whose unparalleled wisdom is matched only by his martial arts skills.  As he battles a series of bizarre dangers, he unveils a chilling truth that places his life, and the future of an entire dynasty, in peril.
A triumphant return to form from one of cinema's greats, Detective Dee is Tsui Hark's best work in years and a film very definitely best appreciated on the big screen. Here's the release schedule:

Sept 2, 2011 - NYC & Los Angeles

Sept 16, 2011 - San Francisco

Sept 23, 2011 - Chicago, Washington D.C., Seattle, Portland, Boston, Honolulu, Dallas, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Denver, Detroit, Toronto

Sept 30, 2011 - Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Atlanta
