Following Oscar Gold

The first trailer for Christian Bale’s new film “The Flowers Of War” has been released and I have to say I’m a bit confused. The trailer is non stop explosions and gunfire, making it one of the more graphic trailers I have ever seen. As this film is Christian Bale’s first since taking home the Oscar for “The Fighter” back in February, you can expect that this film will be epic. He’s a smart guy and wouldn’t want to follow “The Fighter” with a film he wasn’t in love with, so I’m assuming he brings his “A game” with this one. The film follows Bale as Father John Magee, an American Episcopal priest who risks his life to protect Chinese citizens from the invading Japanese forces in 1937, so this film is sure to bring forth some strong emotional manipulation. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think!
