Christina Yao's Special Jury Award winner at the 2009 Shanghai Film Festival is planned for Blu-ray next month.
In an early announcement to retailers, NeoClassics is working on 'Empire of Silver' for Blu-ray on April 16.
China, 1899. In a land of exquisite beauty and timeless tradition a hedonistic young man known as 'Third Master' is the heir to a banking empire he cares little about. However, after his brother's wife is kidnapped he reluctantly submits to the pressure of his title as well as his overbearing father, Lord Kang. Lord Kang is determined to prepare his son for financial leadership by molding Third Master into his own image. The ruthless businessman's unethical practices do not sit well with Third Master, who sees the salvation of his country in the redistribution of its massive silver cache. The tense relationship is further complicated by Third Master's undying love for his beautiful young stepmother, his first and only love stolen from him by his own father. The fate of the country and it's most powerful family now lies with one idealistic young man torn between the needs of the people, the greed of his father, and the undying love of woman.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements haven't been revealed yet.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
