First Korean Pull Quote for Stoker


There’s a first time for everything, I suppose the saying goes. This clipping was just sent to me from Twitch South Korean correspondent Pierce Conran who spotted the advertisement for Park Chan-wook’s Stoker. The translation is something along the lines of “Director Park Chan-wook shows his best direction,” which was taken as a translation of sorts from the sentiment in my Sundance First Impression piece STOKER Delivers on Director Park’s Brand. As is often the case, the quote is attributed to the site only. Too bad, as it would have been fun to see my name translated phonetically into Korean.

Fincher’s Dragon Tattoo “Leak” Might Be Trailer of the Year

It looks pretty clear now that Sony was behind the “Cam Job” leak of the “International Version” red band trailer for David Fincher’s upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is a great marketing stunt and one we haven’t seen yet, though the real star of the show is the awesome trailer cut to the incredible rendition of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song by Karen O and Trent Reznor. Yessss I cannot wait for that album and movie looks pretty damn badass too.

Discussion of the trailer rages on at and there is a lively conversation about how this “Feel Bad Movie of Christmas” isn’t needed (which I whole heartedly disagree with) at Twitch.

Keira Knightley’s best role? Joe Wright’s new Coco Mademoiselle spot

Pride & Prejudice/Atonement director Joe Wright’s new spot for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle stars Keira Knightley as a sultry biker babe in what might just be her best role to date. Good timing as Wright is set to release his first action pic Hanna due out next month. Gotta love what Chanel is doing putting together big stars and big directors in their commercials. Hey if you’ve got the budget…

Coachella Shifted

Not sure if this awesome tilt-shifted vid has been floating around a while, but G.voice is killing it by putting this front and center on the Coachella page. How can you watch this and not want to go to the festival right away? Layaway plans are available now.

Alamo Roadshow Poster Gallery

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin is probably the coolest movie theater in the country. Not only do they have the killer food and drink at your seats setup, but their love for cinema is unmatched. This summer, the Alamo is taking their show on the road, bringing 9 classic films in a series titled “We Are All Workers” across the country (including three dates in California). What’s even cooler – the Alamo has commissioned artist Olly Moss to make a new poster for each film in the series. Check out all the posters in hi-res here.

The Auteurs’ Movie Posters of the Decade

Film site TheAuteurs has posted their Top Movie Posters of the Decade and I gotta say I agree with a lot of the choices. Certainly the Funny Games and The Girlfriend Experience posters are two of my all time faves (The Bank Job was in the also-ran).

Check it out

FIFA 10 – The Commercial

I’m love love loving this sick new spot for the upcoming FIFA 10. In a week I hope to be love love loving the game too.

This is actually the UK version. The USA version is the same except they throw Blanco and Donovan at the end instead of Benzema and Xavi.
