Happy birthday to the hotness that is Takeshi Kaneshiro, who turned 36 earlier this week!
Kaneshiro (Chungking Express, House of Flying Daggers), who is of Japanese Okinawan and Taiwanese descent, can next be seen in the U.S. release of John Woo’s long-awaited Chinese war epic, Red Cliff, due in theaters November 20.
Red Cliff tells the story of a decisive battle between powerful warlords that took place at the end of the Han dynasty. It was originally released in two parts in Asia, totaling over 4 hours, but the U.S. version has been condensed to a 2 1/2 hour running time. If you, like us, can’t wait to see the film–and Kaneshiro reunited with his Confession of Pain co-star, Tony Leung–you don’t have to–we’ll be promoting free screenings in LA and SF in the weeks to come, so stay tuned.
