Cup of Tears trailer

Just what the hell is this movie and where did it come from?

Those are questions I raced to find the answers to after seeing this phenomenal trailer for the sci-fi samurai epic, THE CUP OF TEARS. It’s SIN CITY meets 300 meets HERO, and by the end of the trailer, meets STAR WARS. Yeah, I know.

Here’s what I can gather: The film was shot in Slovenia and is being finished in Ireland by Irish filmmaker Gary Shore. Despite its content, no part of this movie is from Asia, and it has yet to land a distributor, though I feel that’s probably going to change once this trailer starts circulating around. A rough synopsis is as follows:

"Follows a scorned geisha who creates a magical cup made of tears that causes any man who drinks from it to fall into a permanent sleep. One night the cup is stolen, setting off a chain of events that threatens civil war amongst the clans. Taro, a gifted samurai, sets out to find the cup and one who can break the spell."

That’s great, but just how the hell do we end up with samurai dodging rockets and fighting space ships by the end? I’ve no idea, but I can’t wait to find out.

Extra Tidbit: I love when something like this comes out of nowhere to knock me on my ass. Ireland? Really?
