Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel’s martial arts action film, “Headshot,” premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Now after getting plenty of buzz during its festival run, XYZ Films and Vertical Entertainment have released a new trailer of the upcoming picture.

Starring Iko Uwais, known for his lightening-quick agility in “The Raid,” the action flick follows the actor as Ishmael, a man with amnesia, who, with the help of his devoted student doctor Ailin (Chelsea Islan), tries to regain his memory. Soon their lives collide with a gang of dangerous criminals and, with every violent confrontation, Ishmael begins to regain memories of who he used to be. 

Sunny Pang, Julie Estelle, David Hendrawan and Zack Lee also co-star.
