Latest Trailer For Johnnie To's DRUG WAR Shoots To The Beat.

More ultra-violent action from Johnnie To's first mainland China-shot action film, Drug War (Duzhan), in the latest trailer. Holy heck this is violent stuff. Thank you, Mr. To.


Set in Jinshan, China, Timmy Choi, a cold-hearted drug dealer, crashes his car into a convenient store after the exposure of his drug factory. In saving his own life, he locks his wife and brother-in-law inside the factory. Police officer Lei, extremely smart and careful, tries to track down drug criminals by offering an opportunity for Ming to reduce the penalty. Choi helps out by betraying all his brothers, until the last minute when he turns back...


Drug War opens in China on April 2nd. Well Go USA has the US rights but still no word on their release plans yet. This is unsatisfactory. We would like to see this. Now. Thank you.

    Great trailer! I love how the gunshots are cued to the beat. I don't in any way believe that Johnnie To made the hard-charging action film that this trailer promises (not his style), but I'm sure that the film will still be very good.

  • Yes, please!

  • Well Go Girl

    Patience, pals! Team Well Go USA's got yer back. We're just planning our festival / theatrical strategy, and will keep you posted when we have more info. We usually leak to Facebook first (facebook.com/wellgousa). We're excited too, and want to do it right!

    That's MAJOR gun damage!!!

    It's amazing that after all these years, To is still consistent and keeps bringing great material piece after piece. The declining Hong Kong film industry should be grateful for having someone like him representing their front.

  • I have always enjoyed To films and look forward to new releases. For a primer, watch the film ELECTION.

  • i refuse to believe a china cross production could look this good. but its right here in my face !

  • Thomas Zack

    Looks great.

  • Ard Vijn

    Nice trailer! The movie is not as fast or ultra-violent as this implies, but it's not lying much.
