Normally I wouldn’t write an entry about the trailer for Jian Guo Da Ye (The Great Cause of China’s Foundation/Founding of the Nation), a tale of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China but it somehow amazes me how the producers managed to convince about every Chinese superstars to wear a uniform and smirk into the camera. I clearly recognized Andy Lau, Donnie Yen, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Zhang Ziyi, Zhao Wei and Tony Leung but couldn’t find names for some other familiar faces. I think I saw John Woo (1:21) and Chow Yun Fat (1:11) but they don’t even appear on the cast listing…
Jian Guo Da Ye will open on October 1st to celebrate the People’s Republic 60 anniversary.
