Watch: First Red Band 'Let the Bullets Fly' Trailer with Chow Yun-Fat
What a fantastically entertaining teaser trailer - this looks amazing! Well Go has released a red band teaser on AICN for a Chinese film called Let the Bullets Fly, one of the highest grossing Chinese films, and it looks wacky! Don't let that title fool you, this isn't all action, it's darkly comical and just zany, but that's why it looks so good. Chow Yun-Fat stars as a bandit who poses as the mayor in a small town, but meets his match, played by (the film's director) Jiang Wen, and ends up in a "deadly battle of wit and brutality." I'm not sure everyone will be into this kind of humor, but I think it looks fantastic, looking forward to seeing it!
Watch the first red band teaser for Jiang Wen's Let the Bullets Fly, embedded via YouTube:
Set in 1920s China, notorious bandit chief Zhang descends upon a remote provincial town posing as its new mayor, an identity that he had hijacked from Old Tang. Hell-bent on making a fast buck, Zhang soon meets his match in tyrannical local gentry Master Huang, as a deadly battle of wit and brutality ensues.
Let the Bullets Fly is the fourth film co-written, directed by and starring Chinese filmmaker/actor Jiang Wen, who directed In the Heat of the Sun, Devils on the Doorstep and The Sun Also Rises previously. This already opened in theaters in China in late 2010 and was apparently one of the most successful films at the Chinese box office ever, only beaten by Avatar. Well Go USA will finally be bringing Let the Bullets Fly to limited theaters and VOD in the US starting on March 2nd later this winter. Look like it's worth seeing?
