2016 Hong Kong movies The Monkey King 2 (西遊記之孫悟空三打白骨精) and From Vegas to Macau 3 (賭城風雲III) in Pittsburgh from February 5.

Two new releases from Hong Kong will show at the AMC Loews Waterfront from Friday, February 5: The Monkey King 2 (西遊記之孫悟空三打白骨精) and From Vegas to Macau 3 (賭城風雲III). ScreenDaily provides a summary of the former in a January 29 review:
Freed after 500 years beneath Five Element Mountain, Wukong is tasked by the Goddess Guanyin (Kelly Chen) with shepherding young monk Xuanzang (William Feng) on his journey west to retrieve ancient spiritual sutras that will pacify the Earth. They are joined by a pair of similarly disciplined creatures: the water-dwelling Wujing (Him Law) and the gluttonous half-man, half-pig Baije (Xiaoshenyang). When the party arrives at a wealthy Silk Road kingdom, they hear stories of a malevolent demon who has been kidnapping and eating children. The pure-spirited Xuanzang is then himself targeted by the seductive yet deadly White Bone Spirit, Baigujing (Gong Li), who feeds on the innocent to retain her own youthful beauty..
The Monkey King 2 will open in Pittsburgh one day before it premieres in Hong Kong, and three days before it premiers on Mainland China

There are no reviews of From Vegas to Macau 3 available in comprehensible English, but Chinese-language Wikipedia summarizes the movie starring Chow Yun-Fat and Andy Lau:
This movie, too, will play in the US one day before Hong Kong and three days before Mainland China. Both movies will play with English subtitles.

Tickets and showtimes are available at the AMC Loews Waterfront website. The theater is located at 300 West Waterfront Dr. in the Waterfront shopping complex in Homestead (map), across the Monongahela River from Greenfield, Squirrel Hill, and the rest of Pittsburgh.
