Bodyguards and Assasins Releases Posters and Trailer


Update 5/22: A Trailer was Released at Cannes. Looks like a lot is still being filmed and most of it is raw footage, but both idarklight and I still really like it.

The Bodyguards and Assassins production released a poster featuring the full cast and then all the character posters, with the roles they’ll be playing.

I love this marketing, very, very much and the film looks like it’s going to be so much fun. Who wouldn’t want to spend two hours of their life watching all these eccentric characters scramble around old Hong Kong for five hours trying to save Sun Yat-sen? 2008 was a bit of an average year for Chinese cinema with all that was going on, but 2009 is shaping up to be really promising. :D

  1. Really liking the art style for this, and the minimalist in me approves of the color scheme. I’m not much for anything about the time period (tired of it, I suppose), but I like the broader genre it’s in, and it looks promising.

  2. The trailer looks like lots of fun, but intense at the same time…the only thing I don’t like is the overly brown costume, but I suppose it fits the theme.
