The official trailer for director Sasie Sealy’s latest film Lucky Grandma, has arrived. The film, which stars legendary actress Tsai Chin, follows a chain-smoking, newly-widowed grandma who seeks to fulfill her destiny after visiting a fortune teller. As showcased in the dark comedy’s trailer, she heads to a local casino and wins big, catching the unfortunate attention of a local gang. She eventually hires a bodyguard from a rival group of thugs (played by Corey Ha) and soon becomes embroiled in a Chinatown gang war.
Lucky Grandma was written by Sealy as well as Angela Cheng and includes co-stars Michael Tow, Wai Ching Ho, Woody Fu, and Clem Cheung. The film initially won AT&T’s Untold Stories competition in 2019 and later premiered at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival. Lucky Grandma arrives via virtual cinema Kino Marquee on May 22.
