China launches star-studded propaganda movie

BEIJING - CHINESE movie stars have gathered to launch a blockbuster propaganda movie celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. The Beginning of a Great Revival traces developments between the 1911 revolution that overthrew imperial rule and the establishment of the Chinese Communist Party in 1921. It is part of a series of events in China marking the anniversary. Director Han Sanping said on Wednesday the movie is better than 2009's The Founding of a Republic, which told the story of the Communist Party's seizure of power in 1949. The China Film Group is hoping for a repeat of that success with a star-studded lineup of heavyweights like Hong Kong's Andy Lau and Chow Yun-fat, who attended the event on Wednesday. -- AP
