Incredible Teaser for Chinese Earthquake Movie 'Aftershocks'
I'm pretty damn sure no one has heard of this film before today, but you won't forget about it after watching this trailer. Twitch first discovered this extraordinary teaser trailer for a disaster film called Aftershocks coming out of China about the devastating 1976 Tangshan Earthquake that killed over 240,000 people. This trailer reminds me of Schindler's List with the little girl and the way it uses the red to accent the terror and chaos of the situation. I would say this is China's big disaster film in response to 2012, but since this is about an event that already happened, it's very different and much more emotional. Check out the teaser below.
Watch the teaser trailer for Xiaogang Feng's Aftershocks:
When a mother is informed by a rescue team that, since her 7-year old twins are buried under the debris close to each other, digging one out would result in the collapse of the wreckage on the other, she is forced to make the most difficult decision of her life. Based around the devastating Tangshan Earthquake of 1976.
Aftershocks, originally titled Tangshan Dadizheng in Chinese, is being directed by Beijing-born filmmaker Xiaogang Feng, of other Chinese films like The Dream Factory, Happy Funeral, A World Without Thieves and The Banquet previously. The film will be released in China in July of this year, but it does not have a US release date. In fact, it doesn't even have a US distributor yet. We'll let you know if we hear more about it!
