Indie Trailer Sunday: John Woo's Red Cliff Official Trailer
Magnet debuted the official US trailer for John Woo's Red Cliff on Apple last week, which will finally (after two years) be hitting US theaters in November as part of the Six Shooter Film Series V2. We actually ran the very first teaser trailer for Red Cliff back in February of 2008, just to show you how long this film has been around. I still haven't seen it but I am looking forward to seeing it, just because looks so incredibly epic. As expected, this doesn't feature any dialogue, so as to not scare away Americans who hate subtitles. It does look pretty damn good, it may just be tough to sit through four hours of this. Will you be seeing this?
