Chasing Dream Trailer

Kick right into this. An early trailer has arrived online for the film being called Chasing Dream, originally titled Chihuo Quan Wang in Chinese. The film is the latest from Hong Kong filmmaker Johnnie To, who hasn't made anything since Three in 2016. He's back with this intense romantic drama, about a relationship between a young MMA fighter / boxer and a young women who wants to become a singer (in a punk band, I guess?). Wow. How original. A passionate love story between a brutal man and a woman who loves to sing? We've never seen that before… There's not much footage in this first trailer, perhaps only a teaser, but it is something at least. Chasing Dream stars Jacky Heung and Keru Wang. I doubt this will end up playing outside of China, but you never know; only time will tell. This is our first glimpse so far - take a look below.

Here's the first international trailer for Johnnie To's Chasing Dream, on YouTube (via Subway Cinema):
