Three men. One map. Much gun play.

Song Kang-ho (Lady Vengeance, Thirst) stars as “The Weird” in Kim Jee-woon’s Manchurian Western The Good, The Bad, The Weird, which is of course an homage to Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Instead of the American West (by way of Spain), it’s set along the lawless Chinese-Korean border in the 1930s.

I’ve kind of had my eye on this one since it debuted to solid reviews at Cannes. It looks like fun. Check out the trailer after the jump.

The Good, The Bad, The Weird hits IFC VOD on March 31 and will play in theaters in April:

  • April 23: New York
  • April 30: Cambridge, Austin, Honolulu, Los Angeles
  • May 7: Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Berkeley, Seattle

  1. That looks like zany action fun.

  2. It is zany action fun. Highly entertaining.
    Hopefully it could have a lot of box office success… if people don’t mind the subs…

  3. I loved Song Kang-ho in Thirst and Memories of Murder. Yet to check out the Vengeance films.

  4. I hated Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, liked Oldboy though less than the fanboy crowd and thought Lady Vengeance was the best of the lot.

    Glad to hear this is a fun one Amy, I’m excited for it. Being an IFC release, it’s never going to find a huge audience, but hopefully they’ll make money on it.
