Christian Bale Protects Women Of Nanking In New Trailer For The Flowers of War
If you haven't noticed, the entire world has caught Batman fever this past week. Between our prologue screening report, the launch of Operation Early Bird, and the brand new poster, The Dark Knight Rises has been at the front of our minds. But July 20, 2012 - the release date of Christopher Nolan's trilogy finale - won't be the next time you'll be able to see a brand new Christian Bale movie. The Flowers of War, the new film from director Zhang Yimou, will be available in limited distribution later this month and today we have a brand new trailer.
Check it out below.
Based on the novel by Geling Yan, The Flowers of War tells the story of a western man named John (Bale) who finds himself caught in Nanking during the Japanese raid of 1937. Finding refuge with a group of women, John poses as a priest and tries to save them from the invading forces. Yimou's previous films inclide A Woman, A Gun, And A Noodle Shop (a remake of the Coen brothers' Blood Simple), Hero, The Curse of the Golden Flower and House of Flying Daggers. The new film will arrive in New York on December 21st, and Los Angeles and San Francisco on December 23rd.
