Woo's latest action thriller comes to Netflix in May.

After helming a series of historical epics, veteran director John Woo returns to the police thriller genre that made him a cult favourite among Hong Kong action fans in the '80s and '90s with Manhunt.

Based on the novel 'Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare' by Juko Nishimura, previously adapted for the screen in 1976, Manhunt follows a Chinese lawyer (Zhang Hanyu) who finds himself on the run in Japan after waking up beside the corpse of a young woman.

Netflix have dropped a trailer for Manhunt, which is filled with the sort of kinetic action you might expect from Woo, and the film will debut on the streaming service May 4th.
