TGTBTW in Toronto Film Festival


ah.. TGTBTW means The Good, The Bad and The Weird. Oooh I so hope that the film will be released here (in cinema). LOL, it will show to the local people that Korean movies are not just about horror-stuff (coz most of the films that are released here are ehm … of the horror-variety :/ )

“The Good, the Bad, the Weird” Invited to Toronto

Highly touted Korean-style western “The Good, the Bad, the Weird” has been officially invited to the Gala Section of the Toronto Film Festival scheduled for September 4th.

It’s worth noting that this Korean film starring three of the nation’s most acclaimed actors will be included in the main section, while “Class,” the winner of Palme d’Or at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, and “Gomorrah,” the 2008 Cannes Grand Prize winner, have been invited to the World Cinema Section.

“The Good, the Bad, the Weird” is also the first Korean film to be shown in the Gala Section. Previously, such acclaimed works as “King and the Clown,” “Secret Sunshine,” and “M” had made it to the Toronto Film Festival, but only to the Contemporary World Cinema Section.

The Toronto Film Festival is one of the world’s four most prestigious film festivals, together with the Cannes, the Berlin International Film Festival, and the Venice Film Festival. Already sold to 11 nations, “The Good, the Bad, the Weird” is very likely to see a greater number of buyers interested in its purchase, thanks to Toronto’s invitation. This exciting western flick will open in theaters on July 17th.
