Andrew Lau teams up with Richard Gere and…Avril Lavigne?!
It’s great that any Hollywood movie that features a Hong Kong star or director gets to open in Hong Kong first. Andrew Lau‘s (åŠ‰å‰å¼·) first Hollywood movie and starring Richard Gere and Claire Danes (and another turn at acting for singer Avril Lavigne) does not take place in China or Hong Kong and is not a remake:
While training his young female replacement, a hyper-vigilant employee of the department of public safety must track down a missing girl whom he is convinced is connected to a paroled sex offender he’s investigating. Working against the clock they unravel the twisted details to track the potential killer.
It’s so fresh and new there aren’t any reviews for it yet online and we have yet to see it either. That may or may not be a bad thing but the trailer looks good and its the only new English-language movie opening today at Pacific Place AMC, Festival Walk and MCL JP Cinema. Have a look at the Japanese trailer below:
