For families across China, watching the latest installment in Chen’s “Detective Chinatown” series is fast becoming a Lunar New Year tradition. In February 2021, “Detective Chinatown 3” broke the world record for the highest ever first-day gross in a single market thanks to the Chinese New Year holiday, earning a massive $163 million that beat out “Avengers: Endgame’s” opening day in 2019. It’s all great news for Chen, who is now at work on a hotly anticipated fourth installment set partially in London as he continues to expand the “Detective” universe with a successful web series. His new, unrelated project, “Mozart from Space,” a tale of an astronomy-loving boy visited by an alien who changes his life, is expected to hit theaters soon.
