Just for upkeep, the latest trailer for Herman Yau's new movie, Shock Wave, arrived online, and with a much more heavy dose of comprehension thanks to English subs. The film opens on April 20 and with beloved actor Andy Lau fresh and on the mend from an earlier injury overseas in time for the film's campaign to ramp up as it already has... which doesn't make his role seem any less pretentious, to be frank.
Nothing to see here... just another kick ass trailer for James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 opening on May 5. The first one was a lovely surprise hit and with the sequel in bound, I think this one is going to be a blast. Needless to say, I wanna see it with friends.

Want to know what I like about filmmaking? Anyone can do it. Want to know what else I like about filmmaking? ANYONE can do it. Now don’t take this from me as being patronizing. I really do say this from the exact opposite end. Filmmakers come from all walks of life and backgrounds and when one of those backgrounds happens to be in martial arts you get a very unique kind of filmmaker who can produce art with the discipline developed over years of pushing one’s boundaries. It's a background that I am glad to say I can share with filmmaker and action actor Jino Kang.
