HDNet Movies Sneak Preview
Experience exclusive broadcasts of new films before they hit theaters and DVD

The Eclipse
Premieres Wednesday, March 24th at 8:00pm followed by encore presentations at 9:30pm and 11:00pm
Starring: Ciarán Hinds, Aidan Quinn, Iben Hjejle
Directed by Conor McPherson
Tony Award-nominated writer/director Conor McPherson (“Shining City,” “The Seafarer”) brings his dramatic powers to the
screen in horror-love story hybrid. Ciarán Hinds (Munich, There Will Be Blood) plays a widower living in an Irish seaside
town who is struggling to adjust to his new role as the sole caretaker of his two children. When he volunteers at a local
literary festival, his life converges with an author of supernatural fiction (Iben Hjejle, High Fidelity) and a self-obsessed
novelist (Aidan Quinn, Legends Of The Fall). The love triangle engenders passion and rage, and Hinds’ character finds
himself increasingly haunted by apparitions too vivid to be mere nightmares.

The Warlords
Premieres Wednesday, March 31st at 8:15pm followed by encore presentations at 10:15pm and 12:15am
Starring: Jet Li, Andy Alu, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Xu Jinglei
Directed by Peter Ho-Sun Chan
Set in the midst of war and political upheaval during the Taiping Rebellion of the 1860s, WARLORDS stars Jet Li as General
Pang, who barely survives a brutal massacre of his fellow soldiers by playing dead, and joins a band of bandits led by Er Hu
(Andy Lau) and Wu Yang (Takeshi Kaneshiro). After fighting back attackers from an helpless village, the three men take an
oath to become “blood brothers,” pledging loyalty to one another until death, but things quickly turn sour and the three men
become embroiled in a web of political deceit, and a love triangle between Pang, Er Hu and a beautiful courtesan (Wu Jing-
Lei).

Didn't have EHD last time Josey Wales was on, so I'm happy about that... Looks like they think February and March are all one month! Interested to check out River Runs Through It.

Must've been more than a few months ago...I've been waiting to get JP II to complete my collection in HD (without commercials) for over 6-7 months and haven't seen it on any of the premiums since I and III started in rotation a month or so after HDNet Movies aired them... ;)

The Warlords came out overseas in 2007. You can find it if you *cough* know where to look.

Still like to see it in HD though. Will probably DVR it.
