CHINESE THEATRICAL TRAILER FOR THE ASSASSIN


A longer trailer than the first for Hou Hsiao Hsien's The Assassin. His historical drama / wuxia won him the Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May, though its absence from current fall festival lineups suggests that it may be Cannes' most high profile title this year to skip that part of the 2015 film calendar. Asian releases exclusively through the end of the year; Western releases kick off in January with a French theatrical bow, and don't expect it any sooner in the UK nor in the US.
