New trailer for Confucius biopic + 1st photos from A Single Man

The 3-minute long, epic trailer has absolutely no dialogue (none of that horrid voice over stuff, thank God), but the score is amazing - it kind of distracts from how disjointed the trailer actually is. The biopic, starring Chow Yun-Fat as the famed Chinese scholar and philosopher is backed by the Chinese government and cost $22 million (150 million Chinese yuan). The biopic will screen this year to commemorate the People's Republic of China's 60th anniversary and Confucius' 2,560th birthday.

Tom Ford's A Single Man stars Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Matthew Goode, and Ginnifer Goodwin.
A Single Man is the story of George Falconer (Firth), a 52-year old British college professor who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim (Goode). George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately leads him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley (Moore) a 48-year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future. A young student of George’s, Kenny, (Nicholas Hoult) who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks his professor as he feels in him a kindred spirit. [ via ONTD!]

A Single Man is in the TIFF and Venice lineup, so we'll have word on it after it premiers in Venice next Friday on September 11.
