So the trailer for “建国大业” (The Great Cause of China’s Foundation), the movie that will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the
Chinese Communist Party People’s Republic of China is out. As you can see, anyone who is anyone in Chinese cinema is in it, perhaps a testament to how important political favor is in China’s equivalent of Hollywood.
Youku Buzz says that Chinese netizens dubbed it “the biggest paean pic all time”. They also said the movie’s director, Han Sanping, told reporters that nobody cared what the international market thinks of the film and even stated that foreigners probably wouldn’t like it in the same way that Chinese people don’t care about American Civil War epics.
The release date is September 17.
