Live Action Dynasty Warriors Movie

Unread postby Sun Fin » Tue Mar 20, 2018 9:30 am

I've just seen this article which contains a trailer on my news feed for a 2019 Dynasty Warriors Live Action movie. I'm not 100% sure if its legit or not but if so would people be excited?

Just watched the trailer — I’m actually impressed!

Seems like it’ll follow Liu Bei and co. primarily. The actor for Liu Bei looks identical to the games. :lol:

Happy to see it was produced by a Chinese studio and director.

Yeah, but I mean I wouldn't expect a Dynasty Warriors game to be on anyone other than Liu Bei! Lu Bu appears to be a character so I'm guessing it might cover the Dong Zhuo period?

The trailer itself does look quite good!

They are actually doing a movie? Looks like they will have Diao Chan and looked like Wu vs Turbans as well

I wonder who will portray Dong Zhuo. It seems they’re trying to remain faithful to game designs so they’ll need to find a bearded sumo somewhere. :P

Also I wonder if they’re going to have any unusual weapons. If it goes as late as Ding Feng or Zhong Hui, I’d like to see their ring blade and flying swords. (Unless DW9 is indeed the death of such things forever.)

It looks to me like it's already been filmed so presumably there must be a cast list somewhere?

I'm hoping it might be the first movie in a series that eventually tells the whole story!

imdb has a cast list right here but it seems to only list those seen in the trailer for now.

This is the second time Coulee Nazha will play Diao Chan, previously in God of War.

And yeah I’m feeling like this will be a series too.

This movie has one (actually about 500, but one MAJOR) fatal mistake... The Advisers Alliance did the exact same thing and it's unforgivable. When you cast Cao Cao with anyone but Chen Jianbin, then your Three Kingdoms project is an automatic failure in my eyes. Shameful Display.

I haven't seen Three Kingdoms yet, but I loved him in Legend of Zhen Huan.

What are the other 499 mistakes?

Strange that Sun Jian's actor not mentioned on the cast list. Unless I've missed him somehow. Based on the cast I think the first episode will cover YTR and end with Cao Cao's escape, including maybe his famous "I'd rather betray the world.." conversation with Chen Gong. Otherwise I'm really confused why Chen Gong is in so early ahead of all Caos and Xiahous.

Edit: Just watched the trailer. Is it just me or Cao Cao looks like 100% Yu Jin?
There's no trick to it. I'm not using an orbment, it's not magic...and I'm not using an artifact, either. I just will fire to appear, and it does.
