The fourth official installment of historical drama series The Qin Empire 大秦帝国之天下 has released a trailer, revealing an ensemble cast filled with veterans. Zhang Luyi (The Patriot) plays the main protagonist Ying Zheng, the man who would eventually unify China.

Set in the weeks before the liberation of Beiping by the Communists, the new Republican drama is aptly titled New World 新世界, and revolves around the lives of three friends, played by Sun Honglei (To Be A Better Man), Zhang Luyi (The Patriot) and Yin Fang (Operation Red Sea) and the conflicts that arise due to their different beliefs.
The Patriot, starring Tong Liya and Zhang Luyi , is airing today. I have no idea if the story is good, but the logo, poster, and trailer have had been some of the most original for a Republican era drama of late. Here’s the trailer with the aesthetic of 1930’s China being hit by Thanos.
