With SHADOW, director Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow”, a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.
Looks incredible

Looks pretty good. Not a fan of his previous films, though, so I can't say I'm hyped.

huh, it's kind of a black and white movie that's not filmed in black and white. They big focus he puts on color is always interesting

I saw this last year. It's much more a mainstream wuxia flick than the trailer makes out.

It also sorta turns into something like more like you'd expect from Tsui Hark in the final act. Temper your expectations.

EDIT: oh wait, this is a different trailer than the one from last year. I was thinking of this one:
