China Shadow (Yimou Zhang/2018)

Little is officially known about the film's plot so far, but Chinese media has reported that the film is set during China's Three Kingdom's era (AD 220–280). Zhang and Wei Li share writing credits. Zhang's long-running collaborator is lensing the picture. Unlike The Great Wall, the film will be told entirely in Zhang's native Mandarin.

Shadow is co-produced by Village Roadshow Pictures Asia and Le Vision Pictures.

Hope it's better than The Not-So-Great Wall.

actually not, what he does best is drama like Ju Dou, Raise the Red Lantern, The Story of Qiu Ju, To Live, and recently Coming Home
but his 3 wuxia films are excellent, too, so I have high hope for this project, after the disappointment of Great Wall

That is the operative word. You referenced his earlier work. I was speaking more or less in terms of the other movie that's been mentioned by others, including yourself.

If this is as good as The Curse of the Golden Flower, let alone Hero, I'll be pretty happy.

Not a fan of that dull grayness, in stark contrast with Yimou's previous colorful, gorgeous martial arts epics, but it looks better than The Great Wall already.

A bit gutting it just looks so desaturated (I know, I know, it's called Shadow), would have been cool to see him work straight up black and white.

Variety review.

The near-monochrome images are the spectacular star of famous Chinese director Zhang Yimou's sumptuous return to form.

Absolutely.

It's funny, because at the beginning of the trailer I was thinking t myself, "Can't they post one with English subs?" Then it occurred to me, "Who cares?!" I mean the visuals are the draw, not what some narrator or character says.

I don't know anything about the director or his films but that is one handsome poster. Also Cremildo I appreciate you covering smaller films with threads and necroing old interesting discussions. Keep doing you.

Oh its house of flying daggers guy, my bad.
