It's been five years since we've seen a film from director John Woo, but that all changes next year when the first part of his period drama The Crossing arrives this winter in China. This promises to be Woo's most ambitious film yet with the two-part story chronicling three couples from different backgrounds who make a fateful voyage on a ship fleeing China to Taiwan in the heart of revolutionary China in 1949. But sadly, that ship ended up sinking, leading to the deaths of over 1,500 passengers and crew members. Sounds like this could be Woo's Titanic, and the first teaser trailer below certainly promises sprawling drama. Watch below!
Here's the international teaser trailer for John Woo's first part of The Crossing (via The Playlist):
