Must Watch: Beautiful Trailer for Chow Yun-Fat's Confucius
Well this was unexpected. Quiet Earth has discovered the very first trailer for Confucius, the Chinese government developed biopic starring Chow Yun-Fat as the iconic philosopher. I wasn't expecting this to look as phenomenal as it does. Maybe I'm just being sucked into the visuals and the emotion and the ancient Chinese setting, but I just think it looks amazing so far. It's a full 3-minute trailer without any dialogue, only some beautiful music, but it's definitely worth watching. I don't know who did the score that's in this trailer, or where it's from, but it's exceptional. I can't wait to see this, whenever it makes its way over to America!
Watch the first Chinese trailer for Confucius:
The life story of the highly-influential Chinese thinker and philosopher, Confucius, who lived from 551 BC to 479 BC during the Zhou Dynasty in China. His teachings have deeply influenced life in most of Asia.
Confucius was directed by Chinese filmmaker Hu Mei, of Army Nurse, Far from War, and For All Eternity previously, with a budget of $2.8 million, which converts to roughly $22 million in Hong Kong dollars. It was shot earlier this year and will screen this month in China to mark the 60th anniversary of the People's Republic of China and Confucius' 2,560th birthday. It does not currently have a US distributor. Stay tuned!
