John Woo's FLYING TIGERS To Release In Different Formats Locally And Internationally
One of John Woo's many projects will begin production in 2014 and depending on where you live in the World you are going to see it in a different form than others will. Flying Tigers, John Woo's film about the 1st American Volunteer Group in the Chinese Air Force from 1941 to 1942, is going to be released two ways. If you live in China you will get to watch the project as a double film release in your local cinema. If you live anywhere else chances are you will be watching it as a six part mini-series. 

Not one to mince on the details Woo is no stranger to the grand saga. His costume epic, Red Cliff, was released as two films in China before it was mercilessly cut down to make one film for its international release. Releasing the project as a mini-series internationally would make it a nice companion piece to series like Band of Brothers and The Pacific

Says Woo, Flying Tigers "is a project that I have always wanted to do because this is a story that expresses the courage, resourcefulness, friendship, and spirit of both the Chinese and American people and pilots. It promotes friendship between the two nations."  


No word yet on which overseas networks will broadcast the mini-series.

It's a bold move. But it's better than getting destroyed like Red Cliff.

This is the EXACT PRACTICE that you're griping about on the Transformers 4 thread. It's EXACTLY THE SAME.

You are wrong. It is a move to get around the bullying of Hollywood to asian cinema.

Todd BrownApril 23, 2013 12:49 PM

If you repeat it long enough maybe it will actually be true. Except it's not.

Obviously we have two completely different points of view and our opinions are tinted by them. But the real world isn't that easy. There isn't black or white. But several shades of gray. To certain extent we are both right.

Nope. There's a clear set of facts which you're choosing to ignore. More in the other thread.
