Blind Detective Trailer From Johnnie To and Andy Lau

2013 looks like being a busy year for Johnnie To and Andy Lau.

For director To, his police thriller Drug War is due to open in cinemas in Hong Kong in April and now the first trailer has appeared for To's next movie, Blind Detective starring Andy Lau.

Lau plays the titular character on the trail of a violent killer in Hong Kong.

Joining Lau on screen is Cantopop star and actress Sammi Cheng who may be familiar from Infernal Affairs.

There is no release date yet for Blind Detective but you can follow the latest news about the production on the movie's Facebook page, although at present the text is all in Chinese.

Lau's other big release of 2013 should be the long-delayed heist movie Switch.

With two high profile movies on the schedule, Lau looks likely to retain his ranking as Hong Kong cinema's biggest box office star.

As for Drug War, starring Louis Koo and Sun Honglei, the film will debut at the 37th Hong Kong International Film Festival, running from 17 March to 2 April 2013 before it's general release on 18 April.
