Here's the first trailer for a World War II drama directed by Feng Xiaogang called Back to 1942. The movie stars Tim Robbins, Adrien Brody, Xu Fan (Aftershock), and Zhang Hanyu (Assembly). The movie is based on a novel by Liu Zhenyun and chronicles a devastating famine that struck Henan Province in China in 1942, during a time when China was already at war with and partially occupied by Japan.
The movie looks like a very well made film that tells one of those stories that needs to be told. According to the trailer, this is one of the darkest times in the history of China. As a history buff, I'll be looking forward to seeing this movie. There's no release date set yet, but we'll keep you updated. Watch the trailer and let us know if this looks like a good movie to you!
