Samuel Goldwyn Films and Roadside Attractions have released the official trailer, poster, and new images for Snakehead, and Collider has your exclusive look at the upcoming crime thriller starring Sung Kang | (The Fast and the Furious franchise) and Shuya Chang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny). Snakehead will be released in theaters, on digital, and on-demand on October 29.

Snakehead promises a new take on the American crime drama, in a story inspired by true events. The film’s lead, Tse (Chang) rises through the ranks of a powerful New York City family, willing to take on whatever jobs might come her way — but as Tse soon realizes, there are some lines she just won’t cross. Chang’s strengths are on full display in this trailer, making her one to watch as she leads this ensemble. It’s also exciting to see Kang in a role so distinct from the one many mainstream audiences are more familiar with from him. Snakehead is also set to premiere at this year’s TIFF, and is also an official selection at both the New York Asian Film Festival and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
