The Warlords successfully enter North American market

In this year’s Festival De Cannes, although Lee Ang and other four Chinese directors participated but till the deadline, only Tsai Ming-liang’s Face had yet made its debut but the other three participating directors films did not get ideal reviews, thus winning the Golden Palm would be difficult.

However it’s a fruitful for those Chinese films looking for film distributors in Festival De Cannes. Magnet Releasing which had earlier bought the North America copyright for John Woo’s Red Cliff announced that it has also managed to buy the North America copyright for Peter Chan’s The Warlords as it would be screened in North America countries this year.
