Praised by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NPR, The New York Observer, Variety, San Francisco Chronicle, and many other nationally recognized media outlets, SHANGHAI CALLING stars DANIEL HENNEY (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, “Three Rivers”) as Sam, a hotshot New York attorney who is unexpectedly sent to Shanghai to open a new office for his law firm. Upon arriving, he immediately stumbles into a legal mess that could end his career. But with help from a beautiful relocation specialist (ELIZA COUPE, “Happy Endings,” “Scrubs“), a well-connected foreign businessman (BILL PAXTON, Twister, Titanic, “Hatfields & McCoys“), a street-smart legal assistant (ZHU ZHU, Cloud Atlas, The Man with the Iron Fists), and an unassuming journalist named Awesome Wang (GENG LE, Spring Subway, Restless), Sam may just discover romance, save his job, and learn to appreciate the many charms that Shanghai has to offer.
