Roadside Attractions has released a trailer for Peter Webber's (Girl with a Pearl Earring, Hannibal Rising) latest film, Emperor (2012), starring Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, Kaori Momoi, and Toshiyuki Nishida. Last year, the film had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Emperor will open in select theaters on March 8th.
Official synopsis: As General Douglas MacArthur suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture, General Bonner Fellers, 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?
Note: Roadside Attractions is in charge only with the film's theatrical distribution. All other rights are controlled by Lionsgate Films.
