Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame looks like it’s shaping up to be an intense mix of murder mystery solving, hand-to-hand combat in slow motion and goofiness. With a Chinese steampunk twist, that is. The story is about China’s first female Supreme Empress, a series of murders following her, and the detective she hires to get to the bottom of the killings: Detective Dee.
Below, you can check out a new poster for the movie, too! It plays up the steampunk themes in the movie’s visuals. Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame opens to cities around the U.S. in September.[Via /Film]
