I’ll keep this short and sweet: If you’re a fan of movies like "Hero" and "House of Flying Daggers," you probably have a rather large interest in seeing Zhang Yimou‘s latest, "Curse of the Golden Flower." And now there’s all sorts of production stills and featurettes available for your perusal.

Check out all the cool stills over at, and then head on over to the flick’s official site for a lot more goodies.

Synopsis, courtesy of "In the spirit of such landmark Asian films as Akira Kurosawa‘s "Ran" from Japan and Zhang Yimou’s own "Hero" and "House of Flying Daggers," "Curse of the Golden Flower" promises to be Zhang Yimou’s most colorful and biggest production to date, fusing high drama and romantic intrigue with the best of contemporary martial arts. The plot concerns the volatile balance of power between the King (Chow Yun Fat) and the Queen (Gong Li) and his three sons, which entails betrayal, deceit and passion, pitting the King against Queen and father against sons. The glorious canvas includes many of the creative team behind "Hero" and "House of Flying Daggers": cinematographer Zhao Xiading (Oscar nominated for "House of Flying Daggers"), production designer Huo Tingxiao, action director Tony Ching Siu-Tung, sound designer Tao Jing and producers Bill Kong and Zhang Wei Ping. The music is composed by Shigeru Umebayashi ("Hero, "2046," "In the Mood for Love") and the costume designer is Yee Chung Man ("So Close")."

"Curse" opens on December 22nd.
