A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop Trailer

Not another remake! But wait - this is a Chinese remake of the Coen Brothers' first film, Blood Simple. Yep, the filmmaker behind Jet Li's Hero and House of Flying Daggers (and the 2008 Summer Olympics opening ceremony) decided to remake a Coen Brothers film as an ancient Chinese epic, of sorts, I guess I could say. Yahoo (via SlashFilm) has debuted this new official trailer for the US release of Zhang Yimou's A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop this fall. Some places call it A Simple Noodle Story or Amazing Tales: Three Guns (which we ran a trailer for before), but I prefer the more recent, longer title. It's wacky, but looks fun!

The owner of an old Chinese noodle shop's scheme to murder his adulterous wife and her lover goes awry.

A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop, or San qiang pai an jing qi, is directed by Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou of Happy Times, Jet Li's Hero, House of Flying Daggers and Curse of the Golden Flower previously. The script was written by Shi Jianquan & Shang Jing based on Joel & Ethan Coen's 1984 Blood Simple. This already opened in China last year and is just now coming to US theaters. Sony Pictures Classics is bringing A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop to very limited US theaters starting September 3rd early next month.

i loved this movie, thought it was a brilliant remake. chinese media, it seems, did not at all. this was just my kind of absurd comedy. definitely recommended for those with the right sense of humor.
