Upcoming Chinese movies The Monkey King 3 (西遊記女兒國), Monster Hunt 2 (捉妖記2) in Pittsburgh from February 16.

New installments of a pair of hit Chinese film franchises have recently been announced for Pittsburgh: The Monkey King 3 (西遊記女兒國) and Monster Hunt 2 (捉妖記2) will play at the Waterfront from February 16. The distributor provides a summary of the former:
The third installment of the blockbuster fantasy series sees the return of the Monkey King (Aaron Kwok) in his most action-packed adventure yet! While continuing their epic journey to the West, the Monkey King and his companions are taken captive by the Queen of an all-female land, who believes them to be part of an ancient prophecy heralding the fall of her kingdom. With a lot of sorcery and a little bit of charm, the travelers devise a plan to escape. But when their trickery angers the mighty River God, they realize they might just bring about the foretold destruction - unless they can find a way to quell her wrath.
The Monkey King 2 played in Pittsburgh in 2016, and was the second-highest-grossing domestic film in China that year.

Monster Hunt played in Pittsburgh in 2015, and was the highest-grossing Chinese film of all time until being overtaken by several 2016 releases. The production company summarizes:
This sequel to the mega blockbuster follows monster king Wuba as he faces another threat from the dark lord who plots to overthrow the empire.
Tickets for Monster Hunt 2 are now available online via Fandango; ticket and showtime information for The Monkey King 3 has not been released.
