Watch The U.S. Trailer For Well Go USA's WILD CITY
Hopefully it won't be too long before we learn more about director Ringo Lam's forthcoming eight-part anthological movie retrospective, Eight And A Half, which was announced earlier this year. In the meantime, his latest crime pic, Wild City, is already poised for a Hong Kong release on July 30 with a North American release planned for the following weekend and we now have a trailer circulating the web from the folks over at Well Go USA.
The long-awaited feature in seven years, writer-director Ringo LAM sets his sights once again on Hong Kong’s seedy underbelly. In the spirit of City on Fire and Full Alert, Lam’s latest Canto-noir finds unsuspecting bystanders caught in a tangled web of and greed and betrayal, their growing anxieties punctuated with sudden bursts of violence.
When former cop-turned-bar owner T-man Kwok (Louis KOO) befriends a drunken woman at closing hours (TONG Liya), they soon find themselves targeted both by her former lover—a high-powered Hong Kong attorney—and the thugs (CHANG Hsiao-Chuan) he employs. Once Kwok’s underachieving half-brother (Shawn YUE) and a suitcase full of tainted cash enter the picture, the chase turns deadly, with the brothers’ tense family history coming to the surface as Kwok finds himself torn between the triads and his former police colleagues.
