From Director Mikael Håfström (1408) and Screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive) comes Shanghai, a gripping and intense espionage thriller set in 1940’s China during World War II. Starring John Cusack (Love and Mercy, Lee Daniels’ The Butler), Gong Li (Memoirs of a Geisha), Chow Yun-Fat (Dragonball: Evolution), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, “Magic City,” “The Good Wife”) and Ken Watanabe (Inception, Godzilla), Shanghai will arrive on DVD and Digital HD on January 5th.
Nothing is what it seems in this Casablanca-style international thriller set in the ancient Chinese city a week before the attack on Pearl Harbor. U.S. Secret Agent Paul Soames (John Cusack) has just arrived to investigate the murder of his best friend (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), only to become quickly immersed in a web of conspiracy and lies that beset the city. Shadowed by a Japanese intelligence officer Tanaka (Ken Watanabe), Soames’ investigation quickly centers on a charismatic local gangster, Anthony Lan-Ting (Chow Yun-Fat) – and Lan-Ting’s beautiful wife, Anna (Gong Li). Before long, Soames and Anna are involved in an affair that will put everything they have at stake. As national loyalties are traded fast-and-loose for those of the heart, Soames and Anna must race to solve the mystery and make it out of occupied China before the city’s collapse.
Shanghai will be available on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment for the suggested retail price of $22.98.
