....aaand, we've got some. Eight minutes, to be precise.
Todd and the rest of the crew covered Teddy Chen's latest period blockbuster 十月围城 (Bodyguards and Assassins) extensively over the last few months, and preparing for its December 18 release in Mainland China, a lengthy promo of the film was released today to the Chinese press. The film tells the story of a group of bodyguards protecting Kuomintang founder Sun Yat-sen in the Hong Kong of 1905, and it's not just any Hong Kong. We're talking about a full scale replica here.
Produced by Peter Chan, the film boasts an humongous cast including action guru Donnie Yen, Tony Leung Ka-Fai, Leon Lai, Nicholas Tse, veterans like Wang Xueqi and Eric Tsang, along with Mainland superstars like Fan Bingbing and Hu Jun, who plays the assassin.
