What could be the most exciting thing I've heard today

According to Tartan Films, Chanwook Park's follow up to the great movie Oldboy called Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is going to get a US theatrical release on March 24th along with a name change to just Lady Vengeance.

While it's very different in style from Oldboy. It's still the same basic theme. It's a revenge story. It's also very good. I had the opportunity to see it last weekend and it was just a very good story. This is going to be a movie to check out if you liked Park's previous work.

It complete's Park's Vengeance Trilogy with a lot of apperances from actors from the prior moves, Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. Including Oh Dae-su himself, Min-sik Choi as Mr. Baek.

There is a Korean 2 DVD set for this movie that does something that sounds really cool on the 2nd DVD. As the movie plays it slowly fades to black and white. So, while you are watching the movie the color just drains out of it. My main hope is that they find a way to release that version here.
