This movie, which is intended to be the first installment of a trilogy, is slated for release this year.

Cao Cao built the structure known as the Bronze Sparrow Terrace, upon which lived a large number of beautiful women, singing and dancing just for him. The movie will hit cinema screens nationwide in October.
