Earlier photos from DYNASTY leaked out. Yesterday the first all new trailer opened with the New Zealand snowy mountains, under which thousands began a battle. Various heroes fought on the battlefield, as Guan Yu (Han Geng) waved the Green Dragon yanyuedao and slashed at thousands; the heroic trio's battle with Lu Bu (Louis Koo Tin Lok) rocked heaven and earth, Cao Cao (Wang Kai) and Liu Bei (Tony Yang) had a duel atop a mountain with swords in hand; faced with thousands, Lu Bu and Cao Cao on horseback began their slaughter. Lu Bu attacked from the air and had everyone reeling. Later Diaochen (Gulnazar) tightly held Lu Bu as they descended the mountain, Liu Bei traveled swiftly with his bow drawn, Dong Zhuo (Lam Suet) raised his sword and killed his enemies, the visuals had variety and were rich. In addition, the armory master (Carina Lau Ka Ling)'s cold beauty and Yuan Shao (Ray Lui Leung Wai) also were bright spots with their appearances.
Reportedly, the film from pre-production to production to post-production took 3 years. The film was shot on location in New Zealand over four seasons, with over 1,500 post-production special effects shots. Actually the film already completed its post production last year, but due to the pandemic its release was delayed over and over.
