Zhang Yimou’s Shadow gets a poster and trailer

Ahead of its Us release next month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for director Zhang Yimou’s upcoming action drama Shadow which stars Chao Deng, Li Sun, Ryan Zheng, Qianyuan Wang, Jingchun Wang, Jun Hu, Xiaotong Guan, and Lei Wu; take a look here…

With Shadow, director Zhang Yimou once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a “shadow”, a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.

Shadow is set for release on May 3rd in the Us.
