    Below is the trailer for 'Emperor,' starring Matthew Fox & Tommy Lee Jones. The story centers on the post-war occupation of Japan, and the decision of whether to prosecute & hang Emperor Hirohito (aka Emperor Showa) for his role as Imperial Japan's head of state during World War II.


    From /Film:

    Jones inhabits the role of General Douglas MacArthur, who finds himself the de facto ruler of Japan following the nation’s surrender at the end of World War II. He brings in an expert in Japanese culture, General Bonner Fellers (Matthew Fox), to help determine whether Hirohito, the Japanese emperor, should be hanged for war crimes. Fellers’ investigation is colored by his memories of a relationship with beautiful Aya (Eriko Hatsune), a Japanese exchange student he met in the U.S. before Pearl Harbor
