Full Trailer For Chinese Espionage Thriller THE MESSAGE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor

How's this for a streak: Mainland Chinese film producers The Huayi Brothers are very likely the only production house in the world that can claim - at least claim honestly - that they've never had a film lost money. And that trend looks likely to continue with The Message, a darkly slick espionage thriller from Chen Kuo-Fu (Double Vision) and Gao Qunshu (Tokyo Trial) with Zhou Xun heading up and all star cast.

1942, Nanking. Following a series of assassination attempts on officials of the Japanese-controlled puppet government, the Japanese spy chief gathers a group of suspects in a mansion house for questioning. A tense game of cat and mouse ensues as the Chinese code-breaker attempts to send out a crucial message while protecting his/her own identity.

We've run early teasers for this one in the past but the full trailer has recently arrived, is very impressive, and lurks below the break.
