John Woo‘s new film Manhunt got its first trailer and it looks like it’s as John Woo is back in his action form. We haven’t really seen a John Woo film in America for awhile. That’s because he’s been keeping himself busy making big Chinese epics like Red Cliff and The Crossing. I love his movies, especially Broken Arrow, Face/Off and Hard Target which was simply a masterpiece. The last American movie that he made was Paycheck back in 2003.
Manhunt is also a Chinese film, but maybe we’ll get to see it released in the states. The movie is a remake of the 1976 Japanese thriller Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare. The story follows a man who is framed for robbery and rape and he set out on a mission to clear his name.
Manhunt will premiere at Venice and TIFF and hit Chinese theaters on February 16, 2018.
