In the first teaser for Shadow, we’re introduced to the son of an official Ziyu (Deng Chao), who has been sharing a life with his stand-in Jingzhou since the age of eight. It seems like that Jingzhou takes over everything at some point, including his wife Xiao-Ai (Sun Li).
The king (Zheng Kai) may also have a stand-in, and there will probably be a final showdown between the master and the lookalike on top of the political manoeuvring that is going on in the background.
Shadow is tentatively scheduled for a Summer premiere.
The cinematography is really striking. Can’t wait to see more!
