The blockbuster sized, $90 million "The Flowers Of War" focuses on the Nanjing Massacre in 1937, when thousands of inhabitants of the then-capital Nanjing were murdered by invading Japanese troops. Christian Bale plays an American who disguises himself as a priest named John, and shelters prostitutes and students at an all girls school during the attack. This latest poster certainly points to a film positioning itself as one with some dramatic pull, and with two nominations under his belt already, Yimou has delivered to strong acclaim in the past.
No release date has been set for the film just yet for either the qualifying run or regular theatrical bow, but that will hopefully be revealed soon. The film opens in China on December 16th. Poster in full below. [RecentMoviePosters]
