Hyper Stylized Samurai-In-Space Film Is A Gorgeous Kick To The Throat

Cup of Tears' trailer is teaching Hollywood how to put together a sleek green-screen martial arts flick properly, even in outer space. This sick trailer should make everyone who worked on The Spirit blush.

Quiet Earth has pointed out the super sleek The Cup of Tears from Gary Shore. which was all shot on Red camera. The official synopsis is this:

The narrative follows a scorned geisha who creates a magical cup made of tears that causes any man who drinks from it to fall under a stasis of permanent sleep. One night the cup is stolen, setting off a chain of events that threatens civil war amongst the clans. Taro, a once gifted samurai, and his companion Jin set out to find the cup and the one who can break the spell before inner turmoil.


But I'm way more interested in the stunning visuals....
