John Woo's Battle of Red Cliff now two films!
Ok So while we should all be stoked for Jet and Jackie's team in Forbidden Kingdom(April 18th) this is not the only film based on an ancient Chinese novel set to be released. In July China will see two part epic based on one battle/chapter of the classic chinese novel the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The Warlords with Jet Li is kinda based off of it as well.
This is exciting for geeks like me because this is the first non-hollywood Chinese language film John Woo has made since Hard Boiled. Nothing he has made in hollywood has compared so get stoked!
A shorter verison will be released everywhere but Asia, which means will have to order from HK flix to see the full thing.
