Earlier this fall, we got a good look at John Woo's two-part romantic epic The Crossing starring Zhang Ziyi, Song Hye-kyo and more. We're still waiting to hear when the films will arrive in the United States, but the first part of this sprawling love story arrives on December 2nd in China, so one more international trailer has just surfaced. This looks like a truly massive undertaking for Woo, like a mix of Atonement and Titanic with some Saving Private Ryan thrown in there too. Is there a chance we'll see the first part of this film as one of the nominees for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars next year? It certainly looks like it. Watch!
Here's the new international trailer for John Woo's The Crossing (via SlashFilm):

Looks stunning. Woo is a master of beautiful imaging.

Cool seeing a Korean actor in there. I always hearing them (Koreans) speaking Mandarin, they speak it so nicely.

Damn, and here I was hoping this was going to be a new heroic bloodshed film.
