BEIJING, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- A new movie that spoofs popular western films is set for release in China this month.

"The Great Movie: Tens of Billions" hits screens throughout China on Christmas Eve with scenes culled from Hollywood films such as "Brokeback Mountain," "The Matirx" and "House of Flying Daggers."

China's Xinhua news agency said "The Great Movie" cost "millions of yuan" to produce, making it the most expensive spoof made in China.
