So far, after three weeks, with 25 million Yuan, this film is second in the box office history for Chinese films...only 2 million behind the Curse of the Golden Chrysanthem.





From wikipedia:

Red Cliff (Chinese: 赤壁; pinyin: Chìbì), alternatively known as The Battle of Red Cliff, is a Chinese epic film based on the Battle of Red Cliffs and events during the Three Kingdoms period in Ancient China. The film is expected to be released in two versions: within Asia, Red Cliff is to be released in two parts totaling over four hours in length, with the first part premiering in July 2008 and the second in January 2009. Outside of Asia, a single 2½ hour film will be released in January 2009.

The film is directed by John Woo(Mission: Impossible II) and stars Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Zhang Fengyi, Chang Chen, Hu Jun, Lin Chi-ling and Vicki Zhao. With an estimated budget of US$80 million, The Battle of Red Cliff is the most expensive Asian-financed film to date.

Thus began a military campaign of unprecedented scale, led by the Prime Minister, himself. Left with no other hope for survival, the kingdoms of Xu and East Wu formed an unlikely alliance. Numerous battles of strength and wit e

80 million is nothing compared to the average American blockbuster. But this sounds pretty good. I smell an Oscar nom for best foreign film!
