The recent release of “Iron Man 3″ brought attention to a new trend of tailoring a film to the *ahem* needs of another country (read: China). Several non-essential scenes/in-film adverts were shot with Chinese celebrities to better sell the film in that region.

The film, available now on Blu-Ray and DVD from Well Go USA, is an historical drama featuring the likes of Adrian Brody and Tim Robbins in the midst of one of China’s darkest periods.
