The North America trailer of "BuyBust," the action debut of local superstar Anne Curtis, highlights the rave reviews for the Erik Matti film following its New York Asian Film Festival world premiere.
Well Go USA, which is distributing the Viva Films and Reality Entertainment production in North America territories, notably made an action-packed cut for the US audience.
Included in the trailer, for instance, are glimpses of a rainy rooftop scene not shown in the international and Philippine trailers of the film.
"One of the most blistering action pictures since 'Mad Max: Fury Road,'" reads an excerpt from the Screen Daily review of "BuyBust," shown in neon colors in the trailer.
Similarly, a quote from Variety's review was lifted: "Outstanding; a must-see for genre fans."
"BuyBust," which also participated in South Korea's Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival and Canada's Fantasia Film Festival, will be released in Philippine cinemas on August 1, and in North American cities on August 10.
