    Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Grandmaster' Features Hilariously Awful Car Commercial Voiceover

    Listen trailer-makers. We get it. Movies in a foreign language are a tough sell the minute you throw subtitles up on the screen.

    5 Great & 5 Disappointing English-Language Debuts By Foreign-Language Directors

    This Friday sees the release of the much-anticipated "Stoker." The melodrama would probably be of note just because it stars Mia Wasikowksa and Nicole Kidman, but it's even more so because it marks the English-language debut of acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook, the man behind "Sympathy For ...
