The hilarious animated family film Inspector Sun and the Curse of the Black Widow will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on June 21st. It recently received an exclusive early screening at MCM London Comic Con.

Starring the voice of comedian Ronny Chieng, outside his comedy shows and specials, filmgoers will know him from Kung Fu Panda 4, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Crazy Rich Asians and most recently Jerry Seinfeld’s Unfrosted. He often hits lines with a hilarious delivery, which works well for the dry, yet good-natured, comic tone of this arachnid inspector.

Playfully described as A Bug’s Life meets Poirot, this animated mystery is set in 1934 and follows the titular sleuth. After being fired from his detective job after a case gone wrong, Inspector Sun boards a luxury plane from Shanghai to San Francisco for his next job, a very secret mission. Shortly after departure, a murder takes place and the killer – or two, or three – are still onboard. As the passengers, assorted bugs and beasts, are wined and dined, also on board is Inspector Sun’s foe, the Red Locust. A web of intrigue will follow for our famous spider detective! Blending humour with intrigue and lively animation, the film takes a fun, creative spin on old genre tropes. 

Dazzler Media presents Inspector Sun and the Curse of the Black Widow in cinemas from June 21st.
