    Bong Joon-Ho's ‘Snowpiercer’ Will Open The L.A. Film Festival On June 11th

    I can’t remember the last time the media squawked so hard over a movie. It seemed like there was two years of fighting over “Snowpiercer,” Bong Joon-ho’s sci-fi thriller that’s been seen over most of the world and not North America. Harvey Weinstein owns the right and there was a protracted battle o...

    Bong Joon-Ho Remains Diplomatic On 'Snowpiercer' Edits, Says Weinsteins Have Been "Pretty Soft" On Changes

    “Tracks” has been a long time coming.

Mul...

    New Behind-The-Scenes Clip Shows Tantalizing First Footage From Bong Joon-ho's Post-Apocalyptic 'Snowpiercer'

    The summer movie season is nearly upon us, but one of the most hotly tipped summer movies (at least for film fans of a certain ilk) still doesn't have a release date in America: Bong Joon-ho's sci-fi extravaganza "Snowpiercer."

    The Surprises & Notable Absences Of The 2013 Cannes Line-Up

    So the 2013 Cannes lineup has finally been unveiled and as usual, there were a fair few surprise inclusions, a fair few snubby exclusions/category decisions, and some mildly oh!-inducing title changes.

    'Before The Devil Knows You're Dead' Scribe Kelly Masterson To Rewrite Bong Joon-Ho's 'Snow Piercer'

    Somewhat underrated at the time, it's sad that it took the death of Sidney Lumet last year to cause his final film, "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead," to be re-appreciated. A seedy little Greek tragedy of a crime movie, with impeccable performances across the board, and shot lik...
