Eminem faces off against a mysterious figure in the new music video "Phenomenal," played by none other than John Malkovich.
The song is one of four tracks the rapper and 8 Mile actor wrote for the soundtrack of the new boxing movie Southpaw, which is set for release on July 24.
In the Bourne Identity-like clip, released recently on Apple Music and posted on the rapper's website, Eminem plays a man on the run. He shows off some impressive martial arts moves and other stunts in an identified city in Asia and encounters Malkovich, who is sitting in a rickshaw and eating lo mein from a take-out box, with chopsticks. Because...he's John Malkovich. (Watch the video above: Warning: Contains expletives.)
"Impressive," he drawls. "Pointless, but impressive. Noodles?"
"Who are you?" Eminem asks.
"A way out, if you so choose," Malkovich replies.
A trailer for Southpaw features another one of Eminem's new songs, "Kings Never Die," which features Gwen Stefani.
