Skyscraper debuted in theaters in July of this year and has already banked close to $300 million worldwide. The film stars Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€ Johnson as Will Sawyer, a disabled veteran and security expert called in to assess the newest and largest skyscraper in the world, The Pearl in Hong Kong. Chin Han plays Zhao Long Ji, the creator of the titular edifice who becomes an unlikely ally to Sawyer when the building is besieged by terrorists and set ablaze.
Han first became known to American audiences as Lau, the corrupt businessman who runs afoul of both Batman and The Joker in Christopher Nolanâ€™s The Dark Knight (2008). He has appeared in many popular films such as Ghost in the Shell and TV series such as Netflix’s Marco Polo, and The CWâ€™s Arrow.
