I thought that I should cover something for the ladies for a change after most of my entries are obviously pointed towards the male idea of eye candy. Starring Josh Hartnett, Takuya Kimura and Lee Byung-Hun, Anh Hung Tran’s Thriller I Come with the Rain might be something for you girls (and boy) if you can stand the pretty gruesome scenes featured in the atmospheric Japanese teaser trailer below.
Harnett plays the Los Angeles ex-cop Kline who works as a private eye and travels to the Philippines to find Shitao (SMAP’s Takuya Kimura), the missing son of a Chinese billionaire. Together with his former colleague Meng Zi (Shawn Yue) Kline follows a lead to Hong Kong’s local gangster Su Dongpo (Lee Byung-Hun) and his drug addicted girlfriend Lili (Tran Nu Yên-Khê). Caught in the crossfire between the mafia and the police, Kline is haunted by memories of the former work and the horrible acts he committed…
I Come with the Rain opens on June 6, 2009 in Japan. There’s no word of an international release yet, even the planned premiere at Cannes has been canceled. An almost six minutes long promotion clip has been released last year..
