Shadow Trailer - Directed by Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers)

Oct 27, 2017

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

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:
