    Last night, Park Chan-wook's highly anticipated English-language debut "Stoker" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and reaction was mixed to say the least. While the film earned praise, some didn't take to the Hitchcockian thriller, and certainly our man on the ground in Park...

    Sundance Review: Silly & Cartoonish 'Stoker' Is A Garish Misfire For Park Chan-Wook

    One could argue there's nothing subtle about the movies made by South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook, the director behind "Oldboy," including the celebrated Vengeance Trilogy and the loopy vampire movie, "Thirst." Violence reigns in his films, cameras pirouette like self-conscious characters in his...

    'Oldboy' Helmer Park Chan-Wook To Direct Gangster Flick 'Corsica 72'

    It seems like Park Chan-Wook is getting on very well with Hollywood. The Korean filmmaker was one of the most impressive breakouts of world cinema in the 2000s, thanks to "Joint Security Area" and his "Vengeance Trilogy," made up of "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance," the currently-being-remade "Oldboy" a...

    'X-Men: First Class' Grad Lucas Till Joins Park Chan-Wook's 'Stoker'

    It's still too early to tell if we'll see the cast of "X-Men: First Class" in their mutant guises again. While the superhero prequel was well-received, the box office was somewhat underwhelming, with Matthew Vaughn's film turning out to be the lowest-grossing of the five installments so far (domestically at least), and, while "Thor" already has a sequel dated, word's been suspiciously quiet on a possible 'First Class' follow-up from the studio. Nevertheless, the young cast aren't doing too badly off it: James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender cemented their places on the A-list with their turns, Jennifer Lawrence bagged the much-sought-after lead...
