It's China's biggest arthouse film of all time, and it features an hour-long steadicam sequence filmed in 3D.

Check out the official U.S. trailer for "Long Day's Journey Into Night," a critically acclaimed neo-noir from 29-year-old visionary Chinese filmmaker Bi Gan (Kaili Blues).

Starring Chinese stars Wei Tang (Lust, Caution) and Jue Huang (The Final Master), and featuring a special appearance by veteran Taiwanese actress Sylvia Chang, "Long Day's Journey Into Night" is a stylish neon-tinged poetic drama about a man's desperate search for a missing femme fatale, ending with an uninterrupted gravity-defying final act.

After premiering to solid reviews at last year's Cannes Film Festival, "Long Day's Journey Into Night" is making its way to U.S. theaters on April 12th.

synopsis:
Filmmaker Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, KAILI BLUES, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul (Jue Huang) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Wei Tang).

Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser, played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot that plunges its protagonist -- and us -- into a labyrinthine cityscape.
