A handful of new images (the first that I’ve seen on the net, actually) from the Kelly Chen and Donnie Yen period Chinese martial arts movie “An Empress and the Warriors”. According to the film’s poster, the movie is scheduled for March 2008 in parts of Asia. If you haven’t seen it yet, the trailer can be found here. New images from the movie below.
The film’s storyline is set in a period where the country is at war and dukes of the different kingdoms battle for land and power. Kelly plays Princess Fei- er who is commanded by her dying father on the battlefield to defend their country with General Xue-hu (played by Donnie). The princess is later attacked and injured by the treacherous official Hu Ba (played by Guo), but is rescued by Leon’s character Duan Lan-quan, whom she falls in love with. Faced with continued attack from outside and within, the princess must make some important decisions to ensure the survival of herself and her country.
