Oldboy you ask? Oldboy, Spike Lee replies. (2013)



UPD: Trailer has been released can be viewed here

10 years have passed since release of the original and now it's time to have a look at first official poster for Hollywood's remake of Korean classic Oldboy.

You can see the actor Josh Brolin who will portray Min-sik Choi's charming character whom we all come to love so much from the original. I don't have high hopes for this, but Spike Lee can sometimes surprise with his moviemaking skills and it will definitely be interesting to see western take on such unusual and cruel story.

To be released in October, 2013.

First screen from Snowpiercer (2013)

Following some recent concept art releases (Read More) of brilliant Korean directors Joon-ho Bong (The Host, Mother, Memories of Murder) upcoming Hollywood debut Snowpiercer, we now have our first look at screen from actual movie featuring his long time collaborator and extremely talented Korean actor Kang-ho Song.


Snowpiercer is an upcoming sci-fi thriller based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. Plot summary from wikipedia:
The film is set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. A class system evolves on the train but a revolution brews.
To be seen in cinemas later this year.




Stoker TRAILER

Joint Security Area, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and some others. What is common between these masterpieces? Park Chan-wook. One of the finest directors that South Korea and movie industry in general can offer.

Now a trailer for his Hollywood debut, Stoker, has just been released. With Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode and Mia Wasikowska, it seems like really promising movie, with directors trademarked twisted vengeance at it's core. Set to be released in 2013, and I just can't wait to watch it.

 Enjoy.
 

As you might remember, few weeks ago there was trailer for Jee-woon Kim's Hollywood debut, action movie, The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger in lead role (you can check out trailer here).

That makes two of the best korean directors working in Hollywood, but there's more, brilliant Bong Joon-ho also is working on his own science fiction movie produced in west, called Snow Piercer. A something to keep an eye on.

The Last Stand TRAILER

And it's finally here. Enjoy.

More media about The Last Stand

Click me I am huge!















As a follow up to recent first look at Jee-woon Kim new Hollywood project The Last Stand, this is the new poster provided by filmmakers, courtesy of IGN, and I must say it's much, much better and badass than the one originally revealed, which you can see in other post.

Also alongside this new poster, one more picture from the movie is shown, making it two, hopefully trailer or more media will follow soon as I am really excited about this movie.


Plot summary from Wikipedia:
Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is sheriff of the quiet US border town of Sommerton Junction after leaving the LAPD following a bungled operation. Following his escape from the FBI, a notorious drug baron, his gang, and a hostage are heading toward Sommerton Junction where the police are preparing to make a last stand to intercept them before they cross the border. Owens is reluctant to become involved but ultimately joins in with the law enforcement efforts.
Movie is due to release in January 2013 and beside Arnie stars Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzman, Peter Stormare and Genesis Rodriguez.

First look at The Last Stand (2013)


Here is first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, in his first lead role since 2003, from the set of The Last Stand. You wonder why I am posting it here? The reason is that this movie is directors Jee-woon Kim (who is known for such fantastic films as I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird, and A Bittersweet Life) Hollywood debut.

With him, responsible for production, is his long time associate cinematographer Ji-yong Kim, so there already can't be any doubts about visual quality of this movie.

Similar to Jee-woon Kim, another Korean virtuoso of directing, Chan-wook Park is currently involved in his own Hollywood debut - Stoker.

There haven't been many successful Asian directors making transition to Hollywood, so it will be really interesting to see how well they will perform there.
