As China becomes an increasingly important market for movies, we're also seeing a lot of investment in making them, with filmmakers and stars heading east to dip into that revenue. Take for example the new action adventure S.M.A.R.T. Chase: Fire And Water, which stars Orlando Bloom.

He's already shot the role of a private security agent charged with escorting a valuable Chinese antique out of Shanghai. That is until a gang of thieves target the shipment, putting both him in and the woman he loves in peril. To save them both and recover the goods, he'll have to outsmart the mastermind behind the crime and evade the Shanghai police.

Marcella and The Returned's Charles Martin called the shots for this one, which also stars Simon Yam, Hannah Quinlivan, Lynn Hung, Lei Wu and Yanneng Shi.

"S.M.A.R.T. Chase will be the most original and innovative roller-coaster of 2017," producer Vincent Maraval tells screen International, looking to start a little hype. "It will bring the international audience through an unknown traditional and super modern Shanghai at full speed." There's no word on a UK release date for this one yet.
