Judge Archer Trailer

"An archer left behind by history…" Whoa, this looks awesome. Today's trailer is for an upcoming martial arts film called Judge Archer, written and directed by up-and-coming Chinese filmmaker Xu Haofeng, also behind the epic The Grandmasters. As described by Twitch, where I came across this, "Xu approaches his films with a unique blend of grounded pragmatism - you'll never see anything in his fight sequences that wouldn't actually work - and philosophical rigor." Yea, it is badass. It stars Song Yang, Yu Chenghui, Li Chengyuan, Yenny Martin and Zhao Zheng. Just give this trailer a watch, it's impressive, check it out.

Watch the first official trailer for Xu Haofeng's Judge Archer, from Vimeo (via Twitch):

Judge Archer resolves disputes between various martial arts schools, but cannot settle his family issues and romantic affairs. When he is entrapped in a failed assassination plot his own ethics are put to the test.

Judge Archer is the second film directed by Chinese filmmaker Haofeng Xu, following The Sword Identity in 2011, who also wrote The Grandmasters screenplay. It was written, directed and edited by Xu Haofeng, based on a story by Haofeng, who is also responsible for the martial arts direction. It's premiering at the Rome International Film Festival in November, and received three Golden Horse Award nominations, but otherwise doesn't have a US distributor or actual release date set. Stay tuned. Anyone want to see this?
