SKIPTRACE Fires A Dragon Through The Desert In The Latest Poster
Make room on your plate for the next few years because action star Jackie Chan hasn’t gone away just yet. Kung Fu Yoga, Civilian, Rush Hour 4, Shanghai Dawn and STX Entertainment’s The Foreigner are all worth bearing in mind as the devout action cinema mainstay and newly established film school dean keeps his focus just about everywhere in relation to anything involving film, specifically nowadays with director Renny Harlin‘s globetrotting sleuth buddy comedy, Skiptrace, in post-production.
One of the last good cops around, Hong Kong detective Bennie Black (Chan) has been tracking dangerous crime boss Victor Wong for over a decade. When Bennie’s beautiful young niece Samantha (Fan Bingbing) gets into trouble with Wong’s crime syndicate, he must track down the one man who can help her: fast-talking, American gambler Connor Watts (Knoxville). Watts, who is also on the run from the same mob and a dangerous Russian assassin. Eventually catching up with Connor in Siberia, Bennie races against the clock to bring him back to Hong Kong. The unlikely pair embark on a hilarious, perilous adventure from the windswept dunes of the Gobi Desert, to the rocky spires of the Huangshan Mountains.
Cultures collide in this buddy comedy which takes us to places on earth we have never seen before.
