Watch The First Promo For John Woo's Romantic Epic THE CROSSING
While better known internationally as an orchestrator of high-end violence and mayhem, Hong Kong director John Woo can also handle melodrama. Case in point, his upcoming two-part romantic epic The Crossing.

Zhang Ziyi, Kaneshiro Takeshi, Song Hyekyo and Huang Xiaoming star in a tale about three couples whose fates coincided on the Taiwan bound Taiping steamer, which sank in the crossing from China in 1949, leaving many to call it the "Chinese Titanic".

The first part will be released theatrically in China on December 2nd while the second part will be released sometime in early 2015.

You'll find the first promo video, a sort of trailer MC'd by Woo himself, embedded below.

You gotta admit, "The Killer" and "Face Off", and possibly "Red Cliff" had plenty of melodrama.

But most of all A Better Tomorrow and A Bullet in the Head...

My bad, I forgot about those. As you can see...melodrama is in his bag.

Looks like JW is going full-blown David Lean with this one.
