I haven’t been keeping up with Peter Webber’s post-World War II drama “Emperor” until now, but better late than never, I always say. (I totally made that saying up, too.) Check out your first look at Tommy Lee Jones as General Douglas MacArthur and former “Lost” star Matthew Fox as General Bonner Fellers.
FYI: My high school was named after MacArthur. That’s neither here nor there, but I thought I’d just toss that in there. Sharing is fun, kids.
“Emperor” is set after the Japanese surrender at the end of WWII, and follows Fox’s General Fellers as he’s tasked with deciding if Emperor Hirohito will be hanged as a war criminal. Influencing his ruling is his quest to find Aya (Eriko Hatsune), an exchange student he met years earlier in the U.S.
The emperor arrives in theaters sometime in 2013.
