New Trailer For Andrew Lau's The Guillotines

Media Asia and WE Pictures have released a new trailer for Andrew Lau's forthcoming 3D action movie The Guillotines.

The film had a production budget of US$15 million and the opening has been brought forward a week from 3 January 2013 to 27 December 2012.

The plot involves a squad of elite fighters known as The Guillotines, led by the lethal Leng, used to terrorise the enemies of the Q'ing Emperor.

When the Guillotines are ordered to deal with a rebel called Wolf, their over-confidence leads to one of their members being captured.

Even as the Guillotines tangle with Wolf and his followers, a new Emperor ascends to the throne who prefers cannons and firearms to blades.

The Emperor dispatches his top secret agent Du to eliminate the assassins.

Here's the rundown of the cast:
Huang Xiaoming as Wolf (The Rebel)
Ethan Juan as Leng (The Captain)
Li Yuchun as Mu (The Daughter)
Shawn Yue as Du (The Secret Agent)
Boran Jing as San (The Novice)
Jimmy Wang Yu as Gong-E (squad commander)
King Shih-Chieh as Jiang (Green Army commander)

The film is directed by Andrew Lau of Infernal Affairs fame and produced by Peter Chan whose film Dragon starring Donnie Yen is coming out here in the UK in 2013.
