Just as CMC Pictures is calling the shots for this Friday’s theatrical release of upcoming crime sequel, The White Storm 2, Cine Asia is taking the reigns with its own UK release on the same day. The film arrives at an auspicious time as the new thriller from director Herman Yau is just days away from closing its latest festival outing at NYAFF.
In Hong Kong, a former triad member-turned-property tycoon (Andy Lau, Chasing the Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, Infernal Affairs) publicly offers a $100 million bounty to eliminate the notorious, number one drug dealer in the city (Louis Koo, Paradox, Call of Heroes, The White Storm). Causing a ripple effect throughout the underworld, the bounty sets off an escalating rivalry with devastating consequences between the two titans.
Boasting a stellar cast and directed by Herman Yau (Shock Wave Tunnel, Ip Man: The Final Fight), The White Storm 2: Drug Lords is an epic and electrifying new action-thriller which demands to be seen.
