Public release of John Woo's "Red Cliff"


It's still two months before the public release of John Woo's "Red Cliff". The high-profile production plans a visit to Cannes for the upcoming film festival.

Producer Terence Chang and lead actor Hu Jun showed up at the press conference. Hu plays general Zhao Yun in the production by the internationally acclaimed John Woo.

It took eight months to finish all his scenes. That's longer than planned. But Wood says the extension was due to Hu's excellent performance. The battle of Changbanpo, is a key part of the plot and took up a good deal of the production time.

Hu Jun, Actor, said, "We spent about three seasons shooting that part. The director and producer were impressed by Zhao Yun, and added weight to the role. We started in the spring and filmed through summer and fall."

Posters been released to the public seems to enhance the stature of Zhao Yun. The new image sets a stark contrast to previous versions adaptations.

* ) Tony looks awesome in the movie poster!!!!!! His eyes are so expressive it's downright scary... in a insanely good way of course XD

Takeshi is always nice to look at, too XP

Hope the film does well not only @ Cannes but everywhere else, too. I look forward to seeing it =)

* ) I thought that was Chang Chen, Zhao Wei, and then Takeshi.
