Coming your way pretty soon is Jiang Wen’s Let The Bullets Fly, an extraordinary success in China where it has already taken over $100m (£65m).
The film is set in China during the 1920s. Bandit chief Zhang descends upon a remote provincial town pretending to be the new mayor. Using his position for personal gain, he soon comes up against local feudal lord Huang, who has been milking the town in his own way for years - and a battle of wits ensues that escalates out of all proportion.
The movie stars Chow Yun-Fat in great form as well as mega-star Carina Lau (2046, Curiosity Kills The Cat, Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame). The film, independently-made, still a rarity in China, is full of rapid-fire dialogue, crisp editing and action scenes that will leave your eyeballs spinning.
For Scorsese-inspired director, Jiang Wen, the bad boy of Chinese cinema, the return to form is a triumph following the critical disaster of his previous movie, The Sun Always Shines.
