Hey Gang! Magnolia Pictures released a new trailer for their ancient Chinese epic film, The Warlords this weekend, which it part of their Six Shooter Film series. The film stars martial arts master Jet Li, and it looks pretty freakin awesome! The story looks interesting, and the battle sequence look incredible.
Set in the midst of war and political upheaval during the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s, WARLORDS stars Jet Li as General Pang, who barely survives a brutal massacre of his fellow soldiers by playing dead, and joins a band of bandits led by Er Hu (Andy Lau) and Wu Yang (Takeshi Kaneshiro). After fighting back attackers from an helpless village, the three men take an oath to become “blood brothers,” pledging loyalty to one another until death, but things quickly turn sour and the three men become embroiled in a web of political deceit, and a love triangle between Pang, Er Hu and a beautiful courtesan (Wu Jing-Lei).
The Warlords is set to come out in limited theaters starting on April 2nd 2010. Check out the trailer for the movie below and let us know what you think!
