On Wednesday, Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung revealed that his newest film 'The Trough' will be released in China on April 28.

The film, which Cheung also directed, is a crime thriller story and follows the story of an undercover police agent who got tangled into a child kidnapping case. The agent, in order to get justice, now goes on a quest to locate main villain and escape those chasing him.

In the Beijing press conference for the movie on Wednesday, Cheung shared that crime thrillers is a favorite genre in Hong Kong. He also spoke about his shift to directing films, stressing "Although I have worked as an actor for many years, the new movie is a breakthrough for my career. I've accumulated experience about direction over the years. And now I want to use what I've learned from film sets for my own work."

According to the president of the Bona Film Group Yu Dong, the ticket sales for the movie is very optimistic considering it is released during the Labor Day Holiday, a known box office season in China.

Aside from Cheung, who plays as the police agent, the movie also stars actress Xu Jinglei, TV host-actor He Jiong and actress Yu Nan. When asked during the press conference about her role in the movie, Xu said she is playing the "mysterious big boss behind the criminal world."

She further adds, "I play opposite Cheung's character, but we (the two characters) have a more subtitle relationship."
