‘The Flowers of War’ Us Trailer: Christian Bale, the War Hero

12 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Not too long ago the small outfit Wreckin Hill Entertainment picked up Us rights [1] to Zhang Yimou's new film The Flowers of War. That's the film in which Christian Bale plays a roguish American who ends up taking responsibility for a group of girls and women who take refuge in a church during Japan's siege of Nanking during World War II. The film is China's entry for this year's Best Foreign Language film (it is also the most expensive film produced in China) and has an Oscar-qualifying run set to begin December 21 in New York, with openings on Dec 23 in La and San Francisco. To promote that Oscar run there is now a Us trailer for the film, and it is far more coherent and story-oriented than the sales trailer [2] we saw some time ago. It still shows off the film's wartime scope, but it also foregrounds the narrative so »

8 November 2011 10:31 PM, PST | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

Zhang Yimou

Chinese film producer and director Zhang Yimou will be the 2011 recipient of the Fiapf Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film in the Asia-Pacific region. It was announced by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (Apsa) and Fiapf-International Federation of Film Producers Associations announced on Tuesday.

The awards will be given at the fifth annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards ceremony on Australia’s Gold Coast on November 24.

As the recipient of the Fiapf Award, Zhang Yimou will be inducted into the Asia Pacific Screen Academy, joining fellow Fifth Generation filmmakers Tian Zhuangzhuang and Chen Kaige.

Zhang Yimou began his filmmaking career with Red Sorghum, starring legendary Chinese actress Gong Li in her first leading role. It won a Golden Bear for Best Picture at the 38th Berlin International Film Festival in 1988.  In 1990, Zhang’s film Ju Dou became China’s first Academy Awards nomination in the Best Foreign Film category. »

‘The Flowers of War,’ With Christian Bale, Gets Us Distro, an Oscar-Qualifying Run and Early 2012 Release

8 November 2011 4:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Chinese release of Zhang Yimou's WWII film The Flowers of War is imminent in China, where the film will open on December 16. But its fate has been undecided in the States. Now Wrekin Hill Entertainment, in association with Row 1 Productions, will release the movie in a limited late December Academy qualifying run, and give the movie a wider release in early 2012. In The Flowers of War, which is set in 1937, Christian Bale plays "a salty mortician who apparently has come to town to bury the priest of a cathedral in Nanking," and ends up taking over for the priest when invading Japanese forces threaten the students of a girls' school that is also housed in the cathedral. We saw a Chinese sales trailer [1] not long ago, but with distribution set for the movie we can probably expect a trailer for Us audiences in short order. The press release is below. »

Zhang Yimou’s ‘The Flowers of War’ Goes to Wrekin Hill

7 November 2011 7:35 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After months of speculation that went hand-in-hand with talk of Oscars, the U.S. distribution contest for Zhang Yimou‘s The Flowers of War has ended a tad anticlimacticly. A press release announces that Wrekin Hill — the company recently behind Hesher, The People vs. George Lucas, and The Way Back — have picked up the Christian Bale starrer for an opening later this year. With Row 1, they’ll release it in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco “in late December 2011,” rolling it out to other markets at the start of next year.

Awards hope isn’t completely dissipated by this news — but it could very well be hurt. Wrekin Hill is a very small distributor who couldn’t find the proper method to support Peter Weir‘s The Way Back, a film that could have easily earned a nomination for something more technical — cinematography, perhaps — so long as it had the proper backing. »

China Selects Zhang Yimou's Flowers of War, Starring Christian Bale, as Oscar Entry

23 September 2011 1:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The backers of Zhang Yimou's The Flowers of War, a tough period drama set during the horrific 1937 Nanking Massacre, are heaving sighs of relief. China has chosen the film as its official Oscar entry. It is due for December 16 release in Asia and was for sale at the recent Toronto Film Festival, where I saw a stunning 20 minutes of footage. This means that a buyer is now more likely to step up to qualify the film at year's end for a Christian Bale Oscar campaign, knowing that The Flowers of War may wind up a foreign Oscar nominee. (There's just enough Chinese in the English/Mandarin dialogue to qualify.) Based on a screenplay by Heng Liu (Assembly, The Story of Qiu Ju), The »
