Here’s the official movie trailer of Emperor, the upcoming period drama movie directed by Peter Webber and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Matthew Fox, Eriko Hatsune, Takatarô Kataoka, Kaori Momoi, Isao Natsuyagi, Colin Moy and Toshiyuki Nishida:
Japan 1945, inspired by a true story.
The war was over, but the search for truth was just beginning.
“As General Douglas MacArthur (Tommy Lee Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture, General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should Hirohito, the Japanese Emperor, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved?”
Revenge is not the same as justice, but History is still written by the victors.

I guess we may expect some romance between Matthew Fox and Eriko Hatsune!
The release date of Emperor is set for March 8, 2013.
