The first trailer for a new Chinese-language espionage film The Silent War is now online. The movie was previously revealed under the title Windseekers but this new moniker seems more appropriate, as it appears the plot of the movie utilizes Morse Code quite a bit.
The Silent War features two big name stars in Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Zhou Xun, who previously exhibited romantic chemistry in The Great Magician. This time around Tony Leung portrays a blind secret agent, working alongside Zhou Xun in 1951 to help Mainland China foil its enemies.
The Silent War arrives from directors Alan Mak and Felix Wong, who are no strangers to blockbuster entertainment – the duo previously directed Infernal Affairs II and The Lost Bladesman, arguably two of the best Chinese-language films of the past 10 years.
Update: Scope out two new posters and some stills from this hotly anticipated film. A brand new trailer, courtesy of Chinese Films. Here are some lovely new stills of actress Zhou Xun in the film. Some new posters over at Chinese Films.
