Often the early months of the year offer few good movies, which made us nervous about Park Chan-wook's 'Stoker.' It's due out in a couple weeks, but word out of Sundance and other screenings has been great (we rather liked it ourselves). Now there's a featurette that talks about the film's Southern Gothic flavor.
'Stoker,' the first English-language film by Korean director Park Chan-wook, will debut this weekend at the Sundance Film festival, and will be going out to theaters on March 1. But until then, here's a clip from the film in which Nicole Kidman talks about how she really feels about her own daughter.
With the frenzy of anticipation that comes with the announcement of a new ’Star Wars: Episode 7’ movie, it’s worth considering how many names being thrown out can’t make the film for the proposed 2015 release date, or are otherwise occupied. There’s no way in heck that Paramount would let J.J. Abrams jump franchise
Cinephiles everywhere have been hungrily anticipating 'Stoker', the first English-language production by acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-Wook ('Oldboy', 'Sympathy for Lady Vengeance'). With a visionary director at the helm, and a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode, 'Stoker' is easily one of the must-see films in the first quarter of next year, and today brings us our very first look at the thriller.
Even though his first English-language movie 'Stoker' won't hit theaters until March of next year, that hasn't stopped Park Chan-Wook from lining up more and projects. We reported that he was attached to 'The Brigands of Rattleborge' a couple weeks ago, but now he's also lined up 'Corsica 72.'
Often when a director makes a big international splash they're invited to America to make movies. Sometimes they stay (Wolfgang Petersen, or to get old-timey Fritz Lang), and sometimes they make one film and head right back (Wong Kar-Wai with 'My Blueberry Nights'). It appears that Park Chan-Wook, the man behind the original 'Oldboy,' will make a second English language film.
