Ringo Lam, behind movies such as Prison on Fire, Twin Dragons and Maximum Risk among others, has a new movie coming out titled Wild City. Well Go USA has released the first trailer for the movie, starring Louis Koo, Shawn Yue, Tong Liya, Chang Hsiao-Chuan, Simon Yam, and Yuen Qiu. The film will open in theaters across the nation on July 31.
Here is the synopsis, with trailer.
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.

He hasn’t made a movie in years but this is promising. Time for a profile of the great Johnnie To?
