Gallants - Awesome poster for a new Hong Kong film

This a pretty cool poster for a new Hong Kong movie called Gallants, starring Jin Au-Yeung, or better known as Jin the Emcee, who has been off the American radar for almost a decade now.  The design credits are currently unknown for this poster, but there's some beautiful simplicity to its Chinese calligraphy, as the eyes focus on the centered title and the ornamental elements around it.

Here's the trailer, which along with the credits, takes a lot of design cues from the art direction of classic Hong Kong films.

If I remember correctly, Jin was also a graphics designer himself.... so who knows, it could even been Jin who made the poster!
