Striking Trailer For Director Zhang Yimou's Supernatural Martial Arts Film SHADOW
I've got a fantastic first trailer here for you to watch for a new supernatural martial arts thriller called Shadow. The film comes from director Zhang Yimou who has previously brought us films such as Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden Flower, Matt Damon's The Great Wall and the Christian Bale's The Flowers of War. He's going back to his roots with this new film and it looks like it could be stunning!
I absolutely love what I'm seeing in this first trailer. It looks like it was beautifully shot and there's sure to be some incredibly cool fight choreography. On top of that, the story looks intriguing!
The film is set during China's Three Kingdom's era (AD 220–280) and it tells the story of a king and his people’s struggle for their rightful land. That story is told through the perspectives of the king, his sister, his commander, the entrapped women of the palace, and a commoner.
This ensemble cast includes Ryan Zheng, Xiaotong Guan, Chao Deng, Li Sun, Qianyuan Wang, Jun Hu, Lei Wu, and Jingchun Wang. There's no word on when we'll get to watch this movie in the states, but I'll be looking forward to it.
