Not a great deal has been released, regarding the forthcoming movie Emperor, which stars Matthew Fox and Tommy Lee Jones. We have seen a few production stills and pictures but now a new trailer for Emperor has been released, giving us a better idea about what to expect from it.
The synopsis for Emperor is as follows:
A gripping tale of love and honor forged between fierce enemies of war, "Emperor" tells the story, inspired by true events, of the bold and secret moves that won the peace in the shadows of post-war Japan. Starring Academy Award-winner Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, and newcomer Eriko Hatsune, "Emperor" brings to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito's World War II surrender. 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, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved?
Emperor stars Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox and Eriko Hatsune and is directed by Peter Webber, based on a screenplay by David Klass and Vera Blasi. Emperor is set for limited release in the US on March 8, while an official release date for the UK has yet to be revealed.
