First Official Trailer for Johnnie To's Latest Action Thriller Film 'Three'
"We're professionals, but not everything is within our control." Well Go USA has debuted a short trailer for the pending US release of the new Johnnie To film titled Three. His new film is another action-thriller set almost entirely inside of a hospital where the lives of three people intersect. When a police sting goes bad, a master criminal makes a desperate choice: he forces the cops to shoot him. Once in the hospital, he refuses treatment, instead waiting for his cohorts to break him out. The tension builds between the cop and a surgeon assigned to save his life. The cast features Louis Koo, Wallace Chung, Vicki Zhao and others. This US trailer doesn't have any of the dialogue, but I like the music. I just wonder if it's actually any good.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Johnnie To's Three, direct from Well Go USA's YouTube:
And here is a different international trailer for Johnnie To's Three, which is nowhere near as good:
Realizing that he will be defeated in no time during a police showdown, a thug shoots himself to force the cops to cease fire and take him to the hospital. In the hospital, he claims human rights to refuse immediate treatment in order to bide time for his underlings to rescue him. The detective in charge sees through his scheme but decides to play along so as to capture his whole gang once and for all. Three is written & directed by veteran Hong Kong filmmaker Johnnie To, who has made many films including most recently Mad Detective, Vengeance, Romancing in Thin Air, Drug War, Blind Detective and Don't Go Breaking My Heart 1 & 2. Well Go will release To's Three in select US theaters starting June 24th this month. Anyone?

Too early to tell. It has potential though.

It does look for a while like another exploitation bloody take ...
