Johnnie To Reveals The Trailer For Drug War

The first full trailer has appeared for Johnnie To's forthcoming crime drama Drug War.

Captain Zhang (Sun Honglei) and his team will stop at nothing to track down drug criminals.

When drug lord Timmy Choi (Louis Koo) is captured, a deal to help Zhang bust a major cocaine ring could save him from the death penalty.

But Captain Zhang doesn't trust Timmy Choi is truly betraying his partners. He becomes more and more suspicious as steps are taken to raid the ironclad drug factory.

The new action thriller from the director of Election and Exiled, Drug War is Johnnie To's first action movie shot in mainland China.

The movie was shot in Tianjin, China's fourth largest city. Tianjin port is the world's top-level and China's largest artificial deepwater harbor.

The trailer has been released to coincide with the movie playing at the Rome Film Festival from 14 to 17 November.

Johnnie To will be attending the festival, alongside producer/writer Wai Kar-fai and actors Wallace Chung and Gao Yunxiang.
