Lionsgate Films has released the trailer for their historical war drama Emperor. The film is directed by Peter Webber and stars Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, Kaori Momoi, Takatarô Kataoka, and Toshiyuki Nishida. The screenplay is written by Vera Blasi and David Klass. Emperor will open in select theaters on March 8, 2013. Last year, the film had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
In the film, as General Douglas MacArthur (Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture, General Bonner Fellers (Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should the Japanese Emperor (Kataoka), worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved?
Here is the theatrical trailer for Emperor.
