Movie Trailer: John Woo’s Red Cliff

Well it’s finally here: an honest to goodness trailer for John Woo’s “The Battle of Red Cliff”, since shortened to simply “Red Cliff”. (I liked the original title better myself.) The big-budget film ($85 million and counting) is being called John Woo’s “last stand” against irrelevance, since his last few movies have been massive failures at the box office.

Variety linked to a trailer that didn’t work for me, but I did find a YouTube version (below). The trailer certainly looks good — a ton of battle scenes on a massive scale. If you ever wondered what a period action film would look like as shot by John Woo, a man known primarily for his contemporary gun-fu movies, then wonder no more.
