The Cup of Tears looks like it's gonna be a pretty damn fun film to watch. It's a live-action CGI hybrid film that was directed by a young director named Gary Shore. The film was shot in Ireland using the RED camera. The trailer shows off it's awesome visuals, which has that Sin City, 300 look written all over it. For a low budget film, the movie looks just as good as those movies do, it might even be better in some ways, because it's a bloody Samurai sci-fi film! Yeah, I said Sci-Fi Samurai. Awesome.
Here is the plot summary:
Cup Of Tears follows a scorned geisha who creates a magical cup made of tears that causes any man who drinks from it to fall into a permanent sleep. One night the cup is stolen, setting off a chain of events that threatens civil war amongst the clans. Taro, a gifted samurai, sets out to find the cup and one who can break the spell.
