Donnie Yen Kicks Ass In The First LOST BLADESMAN Trailer
In many ways Alan Mak and Felix Chong's The Lost Bladesman feels a bit like a lesser version of Zhang Yimou's Hero. They're clearly going for that same sort of big period epic look and have star Donnie Yen fighting with spear in hand, but they're doing it all with slightly less resources and style.

That said, Hero was a whole lot of movie so there's still plenty of room to be a slightly smaller Hero and still be plenty of movie.

During the warring period of the three kingdoms, ancient China is in turmoil. To unify the country general CAO CAO, the real power behind the emperor, enlists the aid of the greatest warrior in the land GUAN YUN CHANG (Donnie Yen). However, Guan Yun Chang is a loyal friend of CAO CAO's enemy LIU BEI. To persuade the peerless warrior to fight, Cao Cao takes his beloved QI LAN (Sun Li) hostage.

After leading Cao Cao's forces to victory Guan Yun Chang sets out with Qi Lan to rejoin Liu Bei. But now Cao Cao has deemed him too great a threat to live, and on the journey he must face all the forces at the emperor's command sent to destroy him.
The first trailer for this one is freshly on the scene, features a whole lot of Yen doing what he does best, and can be found below.
