Scuttlebutt on the street is that director Dante Lam’s “The Viral Factor” will screen in select theaters right here in North America beginning this January. And while that’s good for those of you who live in larger markets, the rest of us will be (im)patiently waiting for the flick to appear on VOD. Below you’ll a plethora of behind-the-scenes photos from the upcoming Nicholas Tse/Jay Chou actioner, all of which are pretty darn cool. Assuming, of course, that you have any interest in the flick whatsoever. I’ll give you one guess as to which side of the fence I reside.
Unfamiliar with this one? Let’s bring you up to speed:
A mission to escort a witness from Jordan to the Netherlands leaves International Security Affairs agent Jon severely scarred: a bullet is lodged in his brain, his fiancée and fellow agent Rita is dead and their traitorous colleague Sean has nabbed their witness. While contemplating leaving the force, he finds out that his father and brother, Wan Yang, are still alive. In his search for them, he discovers that his brother is working as a mercenary for Sean, who has evil plans to force scientist Rachel to cultivate a mutating virus to unleash on the world. The brothers unite to stop Sean but finds out that he has an even bigger plan for international blackmail.
The goodies we spoke about earlier are hanging out below. You can also take a good, hard look at the previously-released trailer. You know, in case you missed it the first time through.
