BIGBANG’s T.O.P has been noticeably missing during BIGBANG’s fanmeetings in Asia, and no, it wasn’t because he didn’t want to attend them.
He was in fact in Germany, filming “Out of Control (失控幽灵飞车)”, a German-Chinese thriller action film starring Cecilia Cheung Pak-chi and Michael Trevino. And now, fans have all the reason to go into a frenzy, as the trailer for the movie has just been released.
Starring T.O.P (real name Choi Seung Hyun) as a Korean top cop and Cecilia Cheung as a celebrated film and martial arts star, the movie throws the characters into chaos as they are “ensnared by a dangerous plot while visiting the Berlin Film Festival”, explained Variety. It was also revealed that T.O.P and Cecilia Cheung’s characters used to be engaged.
The story line wasn’t explicitly explained in the trailer, but many action scenes were shown, including one where T.O.P had to smash through a window and leap all the way down to the bottom of a tall building.
Explosions and car crashes were aplenty, as the movie portrays T.O.P as a ruthless agent who will stop at nothing in order to achieve his mission. The trailer was a feast for the eyes of action film fans, but the only gripe was that Michael Trevino hardly appeared.
The big budget film, shot in Cologne, Duesseldorf, Wuppertal, Bad Oeynhausen, Berlin, and Aldenhoven, was co-directed by Axel Sand as well as Richard Lin, based on a script by Andreas Heckmann.
