The film, about a young U.S. private returning home for a
victory tour following a battle in Iraq, was produced for a 3D
presentation in 4K with a high frame rate of 120 per second.
Newcomer Joe Alwyn plays the protagonist in the film, based on
the novel of the same name, and the cast includes Vin Diesel,
Chris Tucker and Kristen Stewart.
"The whole thing was so special. The chance to work with a
director like Ang at any stage of anyone's career would be the
most amazing opportunity," Alwyn said. "For it to come around
for me so early on with such a groundbreaking film, which is
trying to do so much and push boundaries, is incredible."
Lee, known for "Life of Pi" and "Brokeback Mountain", told
reporters at the premiere in Taipei he hoped "everyone will love
this movie" despite not all cinemas able to show it in its
"I hope that everyone can happily embrace a new kind of
experience," he said.
