GIVEAWAY – Win Run Of Engagement Passes To See Tommy Lee Jones In EMPEROR In St. Louis
Matthew Fox (WORLD WAR Z, ALEX CROSS, “Lost”) joins with Academy Award® winner Tommy Lee Jones (LINCOLN, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, THE FUGITIVE, HOPE SPRINGS), newcomer Eriko Hatsune and award-winning Japanese star Toshiyuki Nishida to bring to life the American occupation of Japan in the perilous and unpredictable days just after Emperor Hirohito’s World War II surrender. As General Douglas MacArthur (Jones) suddenly finds himself the de facto ruler of a foreign nation, he assigns an expert in Japanese culture – and psychological warfare – General Bonner Fellers (Fox), to covertly investigate the looming question hanging over the country: should the Japanese Emperor, worshiped by his people but accused of war crimes, be punished or saved? Caught between the high-wire political intrigue of his urgent mission and his own impassioned search for the mysterious school teacher (Hatsune) who first drew him to Japan, Fellers can be certain only that the tricky subterfuge about to play out will forever change the history of two nations and his heart.

The story of EMPEROR is based on the resonant, real events of 1945, when General MacArthur took control of a shell-shocked Japan on behalf of the U.S and Bonner Fellers worked covertly to investigate the Emperor’s fate while the future of the nation hung in the balance. Entwined with an against-the-odds romance, the story traverses the conflicting loyalties between heart and homeland, between revenge and justice, as the world rebuilds from the ruins of war.
EMPEROR is directed by Peter Webber (GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING), from a screenplay by David Klass (WALKING TALL, DESPERATE MEASURES, KISS THE GIRLS) and Vera Blasi (WOMAN ON TOP, TORTILLA SOUP). The film is produced by Yoko Narahashi (THE LAST SAMURAI), Gary Foster (SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, GHOST RIDER, DAREDEVIL, TIN CUP, THE SOLOIST), Eugene Nomura (TAJOMARU, SURELY SOME DAY) and Russ Krasnoff (THE SOLOIST). The behind-the-scenes team includes such notable filmmakers as Oscar® nominated director of photography Stuart Dryburgh (TEXAS KILLING FIELDS, THE TEMPEST, THE PIANO), Academy Award® winning production designer Grant Major (KING KONG, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy), and Academy Award® winning costume designer Ngila Dickson (THE ILLUSIONIST, THE LAST SAMURAI, THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY).
