CineMarvellous Preview: Stunning CG Samurai Action "The Cup of Tears" to be Full-Length Movie


The Cup of Tears (2010)

Good news for those of you who just couldn’t get enough from "The Cup of Tears." The amazing trailer/short film from Irish director Gary Shore that hit the net last October and raised some eyebrows is about to be turned into a full-length film! According to "Heat Vision", "Universal" and "Working Title" have acquired the rights and are bringing writers to work out the script for the film while Shore is supposed to direct.

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.


The trailer (watch it below if you haven’t seen it yet), which never made it clear if it was for a movie or a video game, made its debut last fall just as Hollywood’s most recent fascination with shorts was beginning. It offered stunning visuals of Japanese castles, samurais and ninjas — not to mention missiles and spaceships.

I know, Dezz. News came out a couple of weeks ago and I was so excited, I was jumping out of my chair :)

I know I'm a bit late with posting this announcement, but I liked the trailer so much, I wanted to have it on my blog :)

Ah, I see you've changed the post after my scoops :)) I love how YOUTUBE can change your life if you have talent and some luck to be noticed by big bosses. Too bad I can't sing or direct a movie :(
