Trailer: The Guillotines

2:00 PM on 11.01.2012 // Hubert Vigilla

Back in August we shared the first trailer for The Guillotines, the new film from director Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and producer Peter Chan (Dragon aka Wu Xia). The film was originally supposed to be a remake of Master of the Flying Guillotine, but eventually became a story about imperial assassins who must save one of their own and deal with a betrayal by the emperor.

A new trailer for The Guillotines arrived this week, and it looks really promising. We've got a handful of master killers using steel versus an entire army using gunpowder. This could mean some epically inspired mayhem.

Another new trailer for the film is included after the cut. The Guillotines comes out in China on December 21st, 2012. No word yet on a domestic release date.
