Another Beautiful Official Poster for John Woo's Red Cliff
Although we still haven't seen an official US trailer or much else for this yet, Magnet has just debuted the official poster for John Woo's Red Cliff, his two-part ancient Chinese epic, which will finally hit theaters in the US this November. We actually ran another great poster for Red Cliff earlier this year (see it right here), but this one looks great, too. Thought I'd feature it as well, to build some last-minute more buzz. Thanks to our friends at NY Mag for debuting this today. If you're interested in more details on this, I suggest you head over to the official website for the film, located at: redclifffilm.com. And also check out the poster below!
Based on the events during the Three Kingdoms period in Ancient China, around the year 208 A.D. during the final days of the Han Dynasty, during which the legendary and epic Battle of Red Cliffs occurred.
Red Cliff is directed by Hong Kong filmmaker John Woo, of Broken Arrow, Face/Off, Mission: Impossible II, and Paycheck most recently, in addition to numerous Chinese films. The screenplay was co-written by John Woo, Chan Khan, Kuo Cheng, and Sheng Heyu. This film is an adaptation of Guanzhong Luo's novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". Magnet is bringing Red Cliff to limited theaters on November 13th.

"Destiny lies in the wind." You'd have to be pretty retarded to think that this poster is awesome with a dumb ass line like that.

Saw this a year ago. Wasnt as big an epic as i expected. All in all a good movie(both parts), but somewhat underwhelming

Isn't Magnet releasing a shortened version with both films condensed to one? Just buy the Blu Rays for both movies. It'll run you about $70 total, but they look STELLAR. http://www.blu-asia.com/product_info.php?products_id=87

trust me this film is average at best especiallt the second part (red cliff2) the battle scene was pretty awesome but that's it

this poster is nice but i think a poster with some burning ships or boats on the river is much better because this movie is about a battle fighting on ships and boats on a river. hopefully they will change another poster.
