The film is called "A Woman, A Gun and A Noodle Shop" on its U.S. poster, which was specially designed for its U.S. bow.

Adapted from the Coen Brothers' "Blood Simple", the film adds heavy Chinese flavors through Zhang's skill as a director. In order to achieve his desired result, he purposely assembled a group of famous comedy stars including Xiao Shen Yang and Yan Ni.

The film opened in Chinese theaters late last year and has since raked in over 200 million yuan (US$29 million) domestically.
