Watch Mikael Håfström's 'Shanghai' Trailer with John Cusack
Wow, this looks fantastic! The Playlist has found the first international trailer for a film called Shanghai, directed by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström (Derailed, 1408), starring John Cusack, Chow Yun-Fat, Ken Watanabe, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, David Morse, Franka Potente, Li Gong, Rinko Kikuchi, and many more. This actually looks way better than I was expecting - it's just an intense thriller set in Shanghai, China, complete with shoot outs and big secret government conspiracies and so much more. Really looking forward to seeing this after watching the trailer! It should hit some film festivals in the fall as well. Watch this now!
