[Trailer for "The Founding of the Republic"]

China is celebrating the big 6-0, and what better way to celebrate six decades of Communist rule than with a major motion picture? The film, fittingly titled "The Founding of the Republic," hits theaters across China tomorrow (the official anniversary) and features nearly 200 Chinese celebrities, including international sensations Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Quentin Sommerville, the BBC's Beijing correspondent, gives us a sneak preview.
