A brand new official trailer is out nowadays hailing director Dante Lam’s latest ambitious cinematic feat, The Rescue, which opens next year on January 25. The trailer comes just as Lam took to a major media event in Shanghai to promote the film alongside his cast.
Eddie PENG stars as GAO Qian, the captain of an Emergency Response Unit that engages in chopper rescue missions and the up-and-coming XIN Zhilei as FANG Yuling, his beautiful and outspoken pilot. Together they must race against the clock to save lives on every mission.
The Resuce has especially been a big deal for the duration of its headline coverage in the past year in change – several years and making and touting more than $100 million for its budget with key hires like Oscar-winning cinematographer Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and British production designer Martin Laing (Titanic). From these to the reported rigorous training regimen for the cast, the effort definitely shows in the footage the newest trailer offers in the player above, save for just a little sketchiness in the CG which should look much better when the film releases.
Peep the trailer above and poster below!
