The Alan Mak Siu Fai, Felix Chong Man Keung directed epic film THE LOST BLADESMAN (GUAN YUNCHANG) will open April 28 simultaneously in both Hong Kong and the Mainland. Earlier the film released its first trailer. The always hand to hand fighter Donnie Yen Chi Tan was elevated in the film and brought life to the Guan blade; playing Cao Cao Jiang Wen continued to "seep dominance" as he and Chi Tan performed a duel that sent sparks flying.

Chi Tan in the film personally served as the action director. The first action scene was the horseback battle in which Guan Yu killed Yan Liang. According to Mak Siu Fai, Chi Tan placed a Guan blade in his room and kept it with him day and night to find inspiration. The entire film had four to five major action scenes. On horseback, in water, in alley, indoors, every scene's performance was completely different and had quite then "blade in hand, walk with me" if I cannot do it who can aura.

In comparison to Chi Tan who completely relied on the action to do the talking, Jiang Wen in the trailer had a series of narratives. However his several appearances remained "full of dominance", in particular the line "The hero, you can be; the petty, let me!" filled the screen with tension.
