We covered the first three-minute long trailer for the Chow Yun Fat-starring Confucius back in September, and now we have yet another glimpse at the historical epic. There have been several small trailers released since then, so I’m just going to go ahead and call this trailer number two. This trailer has the benefit of being in HD, and gives us a much better look at the scope of the film, as well as the many large-scale battles. Confucius was directed by Mei Hu, with a budget around $20 million. It was developed in part with the Chinese government, and is part of an initiative to promote the philosophy of Confucius.

The trailer for Chow Yun Fat’s next project, Confucius, recently hit the internet, and it’s gathered quite a bit of attention. The trailer forgoes dialog completely, and instead we’re treated to three minutes of gorgeously shot epic scenes, all set to a somber soundtrack. The film is directed by Mei Hu, a director I’m not at all familiar with, but apparently she’s trusted enough to handle a ~$20 million epic. The film was developed in part with the Chinese government, and is part of an initiative to promote the philosophy of Confucius.
