New Trailer For John Woo’s ‘The Crossing Part 1’ – Starring Zhang Ziyi, Song Hye-Kyo, Huang Xiaoming…
This new trailer has arrived online for ‘The Crossing,’ the first film in over four years to be directed by John Woo. Set against the upheavals of revolutionary China in 1949, the film is the story of three couples from different backgrounds who make a fateful voyage on a ship fleeing China to Taiwan. The screenplay is by Wang Huiling, who previously co-wrote ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ and who adapted ‘Lust Caution.’
Starring Zhang Ziyi, Tong Dawei, Huang Xiaoming, Song Hye-kyo, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Masami Nagasawa, ‘The Crossing’ will be released in two parts in China, with Part 1 hitting cinemas on December 2nd and Part 2 following in May of 2015. John Woo has racked up numerous credits and accolades in the past years, but has not moved behind the camera since the $80 million historical epic ‘Red Cliff,’ released in two parts in 2008 and 2009 respectively. ‘The Crossing’ will open in the US and UK in 2015, although it’s unknown if it will be released in two parts or an extended edition.
BET and Relativity Media have unveiled this new behind-the-scenes featurette for writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s (The Secret Life of Bees, Love & Basketball) ‘Beyond the Lights.’ The film follows a perfectly packaged pop star, Noni Jean (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who’s been groomed for stardom from a young age by her overbearing, opportunistic mother (Minnie Driver). The pressures of success compel her to nearly end her life until she is saved by a young police officer (Nate Parker). Also starring Danny Glover, Jordan Belfi, Aml Ameen and Machine Gun Kelly, ‘Beyond the Lights’ opens on November 14th.
