“Inferno 3D” Releases Exciting First Trailer

The Pang Brothers have recently released a string of promotional stills, theatrical posters, and a teaser trailer for their new film, Inferno 3D <逃出生天>, a 3D fire disaster film starring Sean Lau (劉青雲), Louis Koo (古天樂), and Angelica Lee (李心潔).

The $150 million HKD thriller film tells the tale of two firefighter brothers, portrayed by Sean and Louis, and their missions in saving the city of Guangzhou from crumbling to a pile of ashes. Three teaser posters featuring Sean and Louis were released. Six climactic photo stills were also released to accompany the one-minute action-packed teaser trailer.

The exciting trailer includes shots of collapsing buildings, underwater scenes, and stunt sequences of the main leads dangling on the edge of a building and a tower crane.

“I had to face explosions on set almost every day,” Louis disclosed. The actor joked that all the smoke had caused his lungs to turn black.

The actor also revealed that he almost turned down the offer to film Inferno 3D. Ironically, Louis, who plays a fireman in the film, had almost caught himself in fire when he was younger. “When I was around six to seven years old, I burned my left leg. My eyebrows and hair also almost caught fire. I had to strip down all my clothes. Many people told me not to film such a dangerous movie! Honestly, I was really scared when shooting the movie. I’ve seen a cameraman caught on fire before.”

On portraying brothers with Sean, Louis laughed, “We are both very dark! It makes us very convincing as brothers!”

Although Sean and Louis had collaborated many times before, the onscreen partners managed to spark out different chemistry each time. Louis said, “Last time [in Overheard], our characters schemed. This time, we argue as estranged brothers. Next time, we should be just be enemies so I can hit him for good!”

A release date for Inferno 3D has not been formally announced, but the Pang Brothers hinted that the film may hit theaters by October 2013.

  1. ooooh – Sean Lau. I’m ready for this one! Wish I was in HK so I could watch it on the big screens!!!!

  2. Story sounds gripping, great actors, will watch this but not sure about the 3D.

    OCTOBER 2013? That’s like a looooooooooooong way to go.

    1. Funn,
      The October date is likely to get all the 3D effects in order and wait for a prime release date in mainland China. Perhaps the film company did not wish to compete with this summer’s other films scheduled for earlier release. And they need 3+ months to build up hype for the film.

  3. Looks exciting. I’ll definitely watch this but I’m more excited for Shawn Yue’s Special Rescue Firefighters.

  4. I hope it’s not one of those spin off from American film…but this does look very promising

  5. Looks awesome!
    I have been anticipating this since I heard about it. HK will always do one type of movie better than any other country and that is firefighting movies/tv shows. No one else even comes close!
    All their hard work will really pay off when it releases and everyone can see how great it looks.
    You also can’t beat that team of Lau Ching Wan and Louis Koo. They really do have something magic when they get together. Would love to see them as enemies and trying to outwit each other in a future movie.

  6. They both have experience as firefighter movie. Can’t wait to watch it.

    Louis Koo as Lau Hoi Pak in TVB Burning Flame
    Sean Lau as Chief Yau Sui in movie Lifeline (十萬火急)

  7. probally watch this.Gonna watch the tower at my local cinema this week plus SYJ is a hottie.

  8. After the disastrous Fairytale Killer, it’s obvious that the Pang bros have lost it. Pass.
