Shanghai Calling trailer
Daniel Henney (My Name is Kim Sam Soon) seems to have gotten so much better in his acting from the looks of this trailer (and that award for Best Actor he won). Not only does it look funny but it looks like it takes a nice look into culture shock and what it means to appreciate a different place and, in this case, your heritage.
SHANGHAI CALLING is a romantic comedy about American “expats” living in the dynamic, eye-popping city of Shanghai, China. When ambitious New York attorney Sam (DANIEL HENNEY) is sent to Shanghai, he immediately stumbles into a legal mess that could end his career. With help from a beautiful relocation specialist (ELIZA COUPE), a well-connected old-timer (BILL PAXTON), a clever journalist (GENG LE), and a smart, sexy legal assistant (ZHU ZHU), Sam might save his job, find romance, and learn to appreciate the many wonders of Shanghai.
I think it’s making it’s way around in film festivals. Hopefully, it makes it’s way into a theatre some time soon.
