After releasing an international trailer last year, upcoming war movie Saving General Yang (忠烈杨家将) recently released a grittier new trailer, along with promotional posters and stills. The film, which is based on the legend of the Yang family, in which the seven sons brave death to rescue their father, will air on April 4th, which I find depressingly appropriate.
As expected, the trailer is full of fighting and killing and yelling and horses. On average, the crew had to use about 500 horses each day when they were filming. Check out the trailer below, as well as more stills behind the cut:
Trailer for Saving General Yang, thanks to luozhelin @YouTube:
Adam Cheng as Yang Linggong (the father)
Ekin Cheng as Yang Dalang (first son)
Yu Bo as Yang Erlang (second son)
(Is it weird that, after Zai Zai, the one I’m looking forward to seeing most in this movie is Yu Bo?)
Vic Chou as Yang Sanlang (third son)
Li Chen as Yang Silang (fourth son)
Raymond Lam as Yang Wulang (fifth son)
Wu Chun as Yang Liulang (sixth son)
Fu Xinbo looking adorably anachronistic as Yang Qilang (seventh son)
And two more pics of shirtless!Wu Chun and Fu Xinbo, because why not.
I heard this movie is doing badly (worst then expected?) at the box office, is that true?
I don’t think it’s doing that well, but I feel like no one expected it to do well (or is it just me?) It’s pretty obvious from the cast that this movie was not going for quality, and similar idol movies have never succeeded (cough, Wu Zun’s last two movies, cough)
wow! ang ganda talaga !!!!!!!!!!!!!11
I can’t wait to watch it! The story is based on the popular Yang Generals legend. Read more about the true history behind the movie here: http://casualtvb.blogspot.com/2013/04/historical-context-yang-generals.html
Fu Xinbo needs to work out. He’s so scrawny. > _ <
Yeah, I lol’d when I saw his pic.
Emphasized even more when put next to Wu Chun…
They probably wanted to emphasize that, though, since he’s the youngest, and when you see him like that, you think, “Oh, he’s so little, why he is going out to war?”
Are you sure most people aren’t just draw by the size of Wu Zun’s man-boobs? O_o
Lulz, Wu Chun’s moobs rival even Yamapi’s. I’m impressed.
Wu Chun used to be a lot bulkier before he became famous. Then he slimmed down a whole bunch for Fahrenheit to fit the pretty boy image they were going for at the time. There should be photos floating around the ‘net…
