Shanghai trailer online

JohnCusack.jpgJohn Cusack, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chow Yun-Fat, Gong Li, Ken Watanabe, Franka Potente, David Morse, what a line-up of talent, and they are all there in Shanghai, a film directed by Mikael Håfström and written by Hossein Amini.

The trailer has me gripped. It's set-up as a cracking thriller from this footage, superbly edited and matched well with the music behind it, and what a cast line-up.

Shanghai is a film set in the city during the forties, just months before the attack on Pearl Harbour. A man discovers his friend has been killed, murdered, in the city and arrives to begin an investigation to try and find out who killed him and why.

During his investigation he discovers a some terrifying secrets, secrets that even his own government are involved in, and on the way he falls for a woman that he can never be with.

Sounds a cracking tale, and it looks great to boot. I never really gave the film a lot of thought before now, but the cast, director, writer and now this trailer have me sold.

Let me just let the footage do it's work. Here's the trailer found through Total Film:
