Angelina Jolie was only 17 when the Bosnian war broke out -- when the nascent countries of Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia took up against each other in a bitter conflict that lasted four years and left 100,000 people dead -- but she considers it "the war of my generation, to my generation." It's the subject of her directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey," which features an all-Bosnian cast, several of whom joined Jolie in New York for a press day to share what it was like working on such an intense project.

Angelina Jolie's presence in "In the Land of Blood and Honey," a film she directed but wisely chose not to star in, is both a gift and a curse. On the gift end, it's a megawatt star bringing some serious attention to an incident in our recent history that has either been glossed over, underreported, barely acknowledged or forgotten about completely – the atrocities in Bosnia and Herzegovina that brought ethnic cleansing back to Europe for the first time since World War II. Conversely, there will be those who claim, since Jolie is fabulous and wealthy and drop-dead sexy (besides being a U.N. ambassador and outspoken human rights advocate), that she has no business portraying what is still an incredibly raw part of the very recent past. For the most part, though, Jolie tells a compelling, tragic story, framed inside of an unlikely romance, and pulls it off without pulling any punches.

Yeah, we know. Not exactly the most obvious pairing, but since both movies are about war and because we're feeling a bit of Thanksgiving laziness settling in, this is how we're gonna roll on this one okay? Deal. New posters have popped up for the war-centric films "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and "This Means War."

Yep, you're gonna have to read. But if that's a problem for you, then perhaps you can't quite call yourself a movie fan.
