Coming Home Trailer

This is a gorgeous trailer, and this film looks amazing. Another anticipated upcoming film confirmed on the Cannes 2014 line-up this morning is Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou's latest, Coming Home, starring Chen Daoming (Hero, Infernal Affairs 3, Aftershock) and Gong Li (2046, Memoirs of a Geisha, Curse of the Golden Flower). The story is about a Chinese man who is forced into marriage and flees to America, but finally returns home years later only to be rejected by his family. It looks like there are very deep, complex emotions and a heartbreaking story to tell, but I am looking forward to catching this film sooner than later.

Here's the first international trailer for Zhang Yimou's Coming Home, on YouTube via The Film Stage:

Coming Home, or Homecoming or Return as it's also known, is directed by prominent Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou (of Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden Flower, The Flowers of War) from a screenplay written by Zou Jingshi, based on the novel by Geling Yan. Inspired by Geling Yan's novel The Criminal Lu Yanshi, the story spans from the 1920's to the 1990's, following a husband's (Chen Daoming) separation from his family and eventual return home, where he is sent to a labor camp. Coming Home will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival as an Out-of-Competition film. It will be opening in 4K IMAX in China when it hits theaters there. Sony Pictures Classics will release Coming Home sometime later this year.

As an Asian, I feel they should make more movies like this instead of shitty films like "The Monkey King". Then again, I'm sure some Americans feel the same way about their movies.

Fellow Asian here, Korean, I agree. But Korea has no problems coming out with good to amazing films. I think the bigger problem is how Asians are still portrayed in American films and television. We can't break that stereotype of being really good at some arcane skill, like mathematics, martial arts, table tennis, etc.

Great job with Snowpiercer! One of the best Asian and more rightfully, Korean films ever! Also I think Sung Kang who plays Han in the Fast & Furious series broken a bit of the ol' stereotype.

Snowpiercer was amazing. Really powerful film making.

I'd never heard of The Mokey King, but I'm definitely going to watch it after seeing the trailer, it looks bad, but there was so much dragon and kungfu action that I'll watch it anyway. This movie looks great too, but a lot more serious.

Zhang!!! You've done it again!
