New Chinese movie Mojin - The Lost Legend (鬼吹灯之寻龙诀) in Pittsburgh from December 18.

The 2015 Chinese movie Mojin - The Lost Legend (鬼吹灯之寻龙诀) will play at the AMC Loews Waterfront theater from December 18. AMC Loews provides a summary of the movie starring Chen Kun, Huang Bo, Shu Qi, and Angelbaby:
Based on the #1 Best-Selling Treasure Hunting Novel in China, MOJIN - THE LOST LEGEND brings to the screen an epic fantasy adventure about a trio of legendary grave robbers, the Mojin, who are enjoying the retired civilian life hawking goods on the mean streets of New York City, until they are propositioned by a shadowy and mysterious client. They accept the job and return to their roots, raiding the secrets and treasures of ancient tombs in China under the guise of an archaeology study. As each hidden passage is unearthed, it triggers extraordinary challenges that put their friendship, loyalty and life to the ultimate test. In the vein of blockbusters such as Indiana Jones, The Mummy and National Treasure,MOJIN - THE LOST LEGEND will take you on a wild journey from the streets of New York to the mysterious dungeons and treasures of the deep abyss.
The film will be released in China and the US on the 18th. Tickets and showtimes are available at the AMC Loews Waterfront website.
