THE GUILLOTINES gets a First Proper Teaser

The Guillotines 2012 Movie Poster 355x240 THE GUILLOTINES gets a First Proper TeaserIts time to cut some heads with the new trailer for The Guillotines viewable below.

The remake from the classic 1976 version differs in a big way, like the weapon it self. It’s not the flying net like contraption that jumps on to the head and the contraption drops and the chain is pulled completely taking the head off and bringing it back to the weapon holder. The trailer almost looks like this isn’t a remake but we will have to wait and see.

The Guillotines hits the big screen December 20, 2012

Also the film has already been picked up for a U.S Release thanks to the always hard-working Well Go U.S.A, but no date has been set for when it will hit Blu-Ray and DVD

The Film stars a group of Asian up-and-comers including Huang Xiaoming, Ethan Juan, Shawn Yue, Li Yuchun and is directed by Andrew Lau.

Plot: During the Manchurian-ruled Qing Dynasty, Emperor Yong Zheng established a secret assassination squad known as the Guillotines to eliminate all who opposed him. Once heavily favored by the Emperor, the Guillotines are deemed expendable once Emperor Qian Long ascends to the throne and adopts Western ideas and technology. To consolidate his power under a new regime, the Emperor continues to use the Guillotines to persecute the conquered Han Chinese in a reign of terror and oppression.

Led by master fighter Leng, the top ranked guillotine squad consists of five young warriors: Mu, San, Tai, Hutu and Buka. Serving the Qing Court unquestioningly, they have never failed in 348 missions to eliminate their targets. But their success has made them arrogant and complacent. Their next mission is to eliminate Wolf and his Shepherd gang. During the operation, the squad manages to trap Wolf. Just as they are about to execute him, the squad commander orders that he be captured alive. He secretly plans to use Wolf as a pawn in his bid for power. Wolf’s gang of rebels ambushes the Guillotines in their moment of hesitation. Wolf escapes, taking Mu hostage.

With reports that Wolf has fled to the outer frontiers, the squad tracks him to a remote village outpost. On the other hand, the Emperor has sent his most trusted agent Du for the same mission and most importantly, to end the era of the Guillotines by replacing cold weapons with firearms. If only they make one false move, they will become the hunted. Facing annihilation, Leng and his Guillotines must outfight and outwit enemies from both sides.
