'Back To 1942' Focuses On Overlooked Chinese Famine

on November 28, 2012

Back to 1942, the latest film from director Feng Xiaogang (If You Are The One 2), shines a light on an overlooked part of Chinese history: a famine in 1942 that led to the death of 7 million people. 

With a $34 million budget and a cast that includes Adrien Brody and Tim Robbins, expectations are high for Back to 1942. The drama will not have to open at the same time as any American films, but it will face tough competition from the current #1 film in China: Life of Pi. 

Back to 1942 opens in China on November 29 and in North America on November 30.
