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.

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.
