Incredible Trailer for John Woo's RED CLIFF


John Woo's new film, Red Cliff, looks fantastically epic! I know there are a good amount of people that have seen this movie, but it has yet to be released here in the states on the big screen. This is the kind of film that you have to watch on the big screen! This is a huge production, and their is an incredible amount of detail put into this film production. This was a massive hit in Asia and the most expensive Asian film production of all time. The film comes out November 20, 2009, and I can't wait to see it!

Legendary action cinema master John Woo and international superstar Tony Leung reunite for the first time since the 1992 classic Hard Boiled with this epic historical drama based on a legendary 208 A.D. battle that heralded the end of the Han Dynasty.

Red Cliff opens with power hungry Prime Minister-turned-General Cao Cao (Zhang Fengyi) seeking permission from the Han dynasty Emperor to organize a southward-bound mission designed to crush two troublesome warlords that stand in his way, Liu Bei (You Yong) and Sun Quan (Chang Chen). As the expedition gets under way, Cao Cao's troops rain destruction on Liu Bei's army, forcing the latter to retreat. Liu Bei's military strategist Zhuge Liang (Takeshi Kaneshiro) knows that their only hope for survival is to form an alliance with rival warlord Sun Quan, and reaches out to Sun Quan's trusted adviser, war hero Zhou Yu (Tony Leung). Vastly outnumbered by Cao Cao's fast approaching, brutal army, the rebel warlords band together to mount a heroic campaign unrivaled in history that changes the face of China forever.
