“Red Cliff” Trailer

So this is where John Woo has been hiding since Paycheck way back in 2003. Part one of a two-part epic saga of the Three Kingdoms period of Ancient China, Red Cliff is reportedly the most expensive asian movie of all time, somewhere in the region of $85 million. Its hard to tell whether its gonna be any good or not from this trailer, as it seems more of a show piece for how potentially violent its gonna be (check out the guy shoulder charging the horsey!), and the subtitles seem unintentionally hilarious, and then there’s the odd homoerotic subtext in the last exchange. Or maybe they’re brothers. Its not made clear.
