With the Hong Kong film festival and Filmart in full swing, movie companies are pimping their wares and that means trailers and posters galore. Johnnie To and Wai Ka Fai's latest collaboration reunites one of the most successful pairings in Milkyway Image's history, Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng. Their first film together with To and Wai was Needing You and they last worked together on Yesterday Once More, now ten years later they star in Blind Detective.
The teaser trailer below gives little of the plot away, but makes the film look like it steals from a number of other films, including Running On Karma and Mad Detective amongst others. This is not a problem as far as I'm concerned, I've always liked the recycling of ideas throughout Milkyway's movies. Regardless the footage in the trailer looks beautifully shot, and as always I adore how Johnnie To and his cinematographer Cheng Siu Keung shoot the dark.

The release date is not set at the moment, but the film will apparently be ready in time for the Autumn festivals. With Blind Detective and Drug War to come, 2013 is looking like a great year for Milkyway fans.
