Director Erik Matti’s latest crime thriller, BuyBust, has been nothing short of stirring. Indeed the hype is real for the celebrated helmer of hit crime thriller, On The Job, as well as Honor Thy Father and Kubot, and no less in the wake of pivoting away from screening at the Metro Manila Film Festival this year…
Thus, ensuing a slightly longer wait but one that bodes with promise as evidently seen in the first official teaser from Viva Films and Reality Entertainment. Anne Curtis and champion MMA fighter Brandon Vera lead the cast for the story centered two squads cornered amid a drug bust gone deadly with remaining squad members and civilians trapped in enemy sights.
With reason to suspect certain film reps might nab this one for international rights (don’t take my word for it just yet), I’m inclined to believe this particular title will hit pretty big on the market front, which is good news for anyone in pursuit of landing Filipino action cinema on the map under serious auspices. I’m crossing fingers just in case.
BuyBust opens in February in the Philippines before anywhere else, but do take a gander at this absolutely gritty, enthralling teaser below!
