Box Office Performance of “Detective Chinatown 3”
“Detective Chinatown 3”, a film released during the Spring Festival period this year, has recorded more than 4.5 billion yuan in box office revenues. This film was directed by Chen Sicheng. It was scheduled for release in the Spring Festival release period of 2020, but was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the third film in the "Detective Chinatown" comedy film franchise, the critical acclaim and fanbase accumulated by the franchise caused“Detective Chinatown 3” to be much anticipated before its release. It broke the box office record of the highest pre-sale income of domestic films in the history of Chinese cinema.
This film continues the adventures of detectives Tang Ren and Qin Feng. After they have solved the crimes in Bangkok and New York in the previous films, this time, they are heading to Tokyo to solve a new mystery.
However, while “Detective Chinatown 3” achieved box office success, it was not met with critical acclaim. It holds a score of only 5.6 on the rating platform of Douban. Given the contrast between impressive box office performance and low audience approval, let’s hope future films in the series can bring us more satisfaction.
