Bigger Poster for Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution

9 Comments

Here’s a bigger version of the poster for Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution” via Variety. The Chinese-language film (the trailer tried its hardest to avoid mentioning that the movie is in Chinese, in case you didn’t notice, wink wink) stars Hong Kong stalwart Tony Leung and is set in WWII Shanghai, and involves a plot to assassinate an intelligence chief in the Japanese-backed Chinese government. Leung plays the intelligence chief, Joan Chen plays his wife and newcomer Wei Tang is a student who seduces Leung’s the character in order to set up the assassination.

Just by looking at the poster, and if you didn’t already know who the director was, the first thought that has to pop into your head is, “Wong Kar Wai is directing another movie ALREADY?” That’s how “Wong Kar Wai-ish” the poster is. Mind you, not that there’s anything wrong with that. When you can be compared to Kar Wai, you’re in very good company.

The film is scheduled for limited release on September 28. That means LA and NY and probably DVD for the rest of us.

    now that you mentioned it, that poster’s closer to a lot of 30s shanghai images (airbrushed people as pin-ups, magazine photos.) collectibles still in demand today. the trailer is ang lee all the way (CTHD), though. Leung, who’s usually in one of his 3 modes (brooding WKW romantic, brooding john woo “loyalist”, silly-sexy comedy), appears to be in a combo of 2 of them this time.

    I swear Tony Leung will look exactly the same as he he did 20 years ago in 20 more years. The guy is ageless.
