WellGo USA is set to release Johnnie To’s latest crime thriller “Drug War” for Stateside fans this July 26th, 2013, so mark your calenders, kids. But until then, check out a new English-subtitled trailer for the movie below. It’s very action-packed and if you were looking to indulge in some stylized Chinese action, then “Drug War” looks like the film for you. But hey, don’t take my word for it, see for yourself below, see for yourselfers.

And in case you missed it, you can read our review of the film here. SPOILER: We liked it.

Manufacturing just fifty grams of meth in China will earn you a death sentence, and Timmy Choi (Louis Koo) has manufactured tons of it. After a violent lab accident, he’s in the custody of Captain Zhang (Sun Honglei), and now he has only one chance to avoid execution: turn informant and help Zhang’s undercover team take down the powerful cartel he’s been cooking for. With the uneasy allies forced to compress months of police work into just 72 sleepless hours, things begin to spin wildly out of control, and it becomes unclear whether the cop or the criminal truly has the upper hand in master director Johnnie To’s puzzle box of a crime thriller.

Starring Louis Koo, Sun Honglei, Huang Yi, and Wallace Chung.
