This week in cinemas: ‘Overheard 3’ (Hong Kong)

Overheard 3Arriving tomorrow May 29 in Aussie cinemas we have the latest installment in this series from writer/director duo Alan Mak and Felix Chong (the team behind the Infernal Affairs trilogy, and more recently The Lost Bladesman and The Silent War.)

Overheard 3 stars the series’ usual trio of HK A-listers Lau Ching-wan, Louis Koo and Daniel Wu, plus Zhou Xin and a supporting cast of familiar Hong Kong faces. As with the previous film, it’s a very loose sequel: the principal actors and themes remain, but their characters are all-new. No sign of Michael Wong chewing scenery in this one, but we can’t have everything.

Here’s a trailer (and I love the computer screen blaring ‘HACKING SUCCESS!’):

It’s screening nationwide in both Mandarin and Cantonese — check the details (and the language) at distributor Magnum Films’ site (or their Facebook page, where there’s occasionally a giveaway!)
