Johnnie To orchestrates mayhem in the teaser for Three

A gangster, cornered in a showdown with police, shoots himself, obligating the cops to take him to a hospital, where he stalls doctors and officers in anticipation of a break-out attempt by his gang. The wordless minute-long teaser for Three—the latest from prolific Hong Kong virtuoso Johnnie To—doesn’t even establish that modicum of a premise, instead focusing on the dynamically composed and staged action that has become To’s signature.

Three will hit theaters in Hong Kong on June 24. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a U.S. release soon after.
