Watch This: Second Epic Trailer for Chow Yun-Fat's Confucius
Whoa! Twitch found the final full-length trailer for Hu Mei's biopic Confucius starring Chow Yun-Fat as the famous philosopher. The battles in this look absolutely crazy, but not necessarily in a good way. It kind of feels like China just went all out on this, kind of like it's their version of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, throwing in all kinds of epic battles and visual effects and as many human beings as possible just for the hell of it. I absolutely loved the first teaser trailer we ran for this last year, it was gorgeous, but this one just isn't the same, but I'll still see it anyway. Also, this trailer does have English subtitles in it. Thoughts?
Watch the second full 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!

The over used CGI, I really don't like that in a movie, but maybe it'll be worth it anyways. By the way.... was that Master Roshi??? (I know lame joke but I had to say it lol)

Confucius looks in the same style of Redcliff big sets, big battles Beijing can stage these battle seqances relay well. It all depends on the storyline will it be up to scratch. I like Chow yung fat he is a good chinease actor i liked hardboiled. 🙂
