Martial arts Hero Jet Li is so thrilled with the success of his movie HERO
in America, he's taken out a full-page advertisement thanking Quentin Tarantino
for transporting it from China.
The film, which is set in the third century BC, has been at the top of the
American box office for the past two weekends, prompting Li, the film's
director Zhang Yimou and the cast and crew to say a big thank-you to Tarantino
and Miramax bosses
BOB and Harvey Weinstein for making it a success.
The ad, placed in Hollywood trade publication DAILY VARIETY, reads, "We
want to thank Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Quentin Tarantino and the entire
Miramax team for their unbelievable efforts on Hero. They supported this film
from the very
beginning when they came on board as co-financiers.
"They proved to the world that a Chinese-language film can be a commercial
success in America and that you guys are the best there is."
