Starring Andy Lau and Tony Leung? Action Choreography by Sammo Hung? Directed by Tsui Hark? Damn straight I’m excited about “Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame”. Never mind that the title sounds like the latest installment of the “Harry Potter” series — I’m ready to see some fantastical martial arts mayhem courtesy of Hung and Hark. The second trailer for the upcoming flick (courtesy of Film Smash) is alive and kicking and ready to boggle your tender mind. The clip has been embedded below, so take a moment to give it a go. I think you’ll be impressed. Then again, maybe not.
“Detective Dee” is scheduled for release in China on September 29th.
