Tommy Lee Jones in the movie EmperorWe’ve just been sent the first-look image of Tommy Lee Jones from his new movie, Emperor which is directed by Peter Webber and also stars Matthew Fox. It’s currently doing the rounds in Cannes looking to be picked up in the market. Tommy Lee Jones plays Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the movie which we’ve got the synopsis for below.

Check it out and keep your eyes peeled for more from the movie when it no doubt gets picked up. We’ll see the man himself this evening at the Premiere of Men in Black 3.

Starring Matthew Fox (World War Z, I, Alex Cross, Lost) and Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln, Men in Black 3), EMPEROR, inspired by true events, is an epic story of love and understanding set amidst the tensions and uncertainties of the days immediately following the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II. On the staff of General Douglas MacArthur (Jones), the de facto ruler of Japan as Supreme Commander of the occupying forces, a leading Japanese expert, General Bonner Fellers (Fox) is charged with reaching a decision of historical importance: should Emperor Hirohito be tried and hanged as a war criminal? From director Peter Webber (Girl with a Pearl Earring), EMPEROR is produced by Yoko Narahashi (The Last Samurai), Gary Foster (Ghost Rider, Daredevil, The Soloist), Eugene Nomura (Tajomaru, Surely Some Day) and Russ Krasnoff (The Soloist).
