John Cho, seen last year in the evocative and visually sumptuous film Columbus, may have another excellent film under his belt with Searching. The latest trailer suggests a twisty Hitchcockian thriller that also owes a debt to the found footage genre, and hopefully first time feature filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty brings us an effective, nail biting thriller.
The story centers on David Kim, a man who is desperately “searching” for his missing 16-year-old daughter (Michelle La). Without one credible lead from the police after 37 hours, David takes matters into his own hands and scours his daughter’s laptop for answers.
Searching, which premiered at the Los Angeles Pacific Asian Film Festival earlier this year, hits theaters August 3. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
