With more than 300 illustrations, this spectacular, full-color visual companion reveals how a movie of gigantic scope and complexity is made—especially one shot in modern-day China and Montreal with sets to replicate 200 b.c. China and 1946 Shanghai and London. Director Rob Cohen’s introduction offers a fascinating glimpse into the moviemaking process as he describes how he worked with the producers, screenwriters, crew, and cast to prepare the movie for production.

Additional sections cover the remarkable sets, action sequences, creatures, and costumes, all highlighted by photographs, storyboards, drawings, and commentary from the film’s cast and crew, especially production designer Nigel Phelps. This is a must-have volume for all movie buffs.
