Trailer for Christian Bale’s The Flowers of War

The latest film from director Zhang Yimou (“Hero”, “House of Flying Daggers”) has popped up online. Starring Christian Bale in the lead, “The Flowers of War” tells the story of 13 prostitutes who stepped in for female university students who were to be taken as “escorts” for the troops during the period when nearly 20,000 women and girls were raped and killed by the Japanese troops.

Bale plays a Catholic priest who shelters a group of prostitutes and female students in his church during the brutal 1937 invasion and pillaging of the Chinese capitol by Japanese troops known as the “Rape of Nanking.”

Twitchfilm
notes that up to 40% of the film will play out in English, with the rest in Mandarin and Japanese. So far, the only release date set for the film includes a December 16 opening in China, with international dates still being worked out.

“The Flowers of War” has been selected as the Chinese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards. Watch the trailer for the film below.
