Buybust — U.S. Trailer


added: Fri, Jul 20th '18

Sometimes the only way out of a dire situation is to fight your way through it -- preferably with the help of a lot of weapons.

Check out the newly-released U.S. trailer for "Buybust," a new heart-pounding action crime thriller from acclaimed Filipino filmmaker Erik Matti, who is perhaps best known for his award-winning Filipino hitman thriller "On the Job."

"Buybust" stars Filipino-Australian actress Anne Curtis as an elite special agent who is forced to rely on her survival skills when her entire anti-narcotics police squad is wiped out by heavily-armed gangsters, leaving her to fend for herself in the middle of the most dangerous slum city in the Philippines, which is ruled by drug lords.

The film, which just premiered last weekend to strong reviews at this year's New York Asian Film Festival, will be released theatrically in the States on August 1st, via Well Go USA Entertainment.

After surviving the slaughter of her entire squad in a drug raid compromised by dirty cops, anti-narcotics special operative Nina Manigan (Anne Curtis), is eager to go head-to-head with the drug cartels that hold a bloody grip on Manila. But when her new mission in the city’s most dangerous slum goes south, the angry civilians turn on her squad. Trapped between a brutal drug gang and hordes of bloodthirsty citizens, their only option is to fight their way out, turning one claustrophobic street at a time into a symphony of apocalyptic violence.
