Week's New Movie Premieres

2007/06/08 Source

It's Friday, which means it's time to check the latest film releases.
A Korean movie out is about one of the country's most celebrated female entertainers, plus a horror movie and the latest Shrek sequel.
Here's Son Heekyung.
The period drama "Hwang Jin Yi" is entering the public's conscience.
The film is ranked first in online ticket sales in one of Korea's leading multiplex chains, beating out Hollywood blockbuster sequels like "Shrek the Third" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End".
"Hwang Jini" is about one of Korea's most celebrated female entertainers of the Joseon Dynasty which ruled Korea between the 14th and the early 20th centuries.
Actress Song Hyekyo plays a heartbroken woman who is torn between her lover and the powerful district magistrate.

"Though 'gisaeng' in general earned no great reputation, Hwang Jini performed for the upper classes. Writing poetry, singing, dancing and playing a musical instrument this woman could do it all".
The second sequel to one of the most popular animated comedies is out.
"Shrek the Third" is similar to the two previous films in being based on fairy tale themes.
Actress Cameron Diaz is the voice of Princess Fiona and visited Korea for the first time to promote the film.

"Because I'm not doing acting with another actor right in front of me, there's also that challenge but I think that challenge is actually what also makes it so much fun and the reason I love doing it so much is because I get to play, it's an open canvas and so it's challenging and the fun of it all".

Last up this week is a supernatural thriller film from the US.
"The Messengers" is by the twin Pang brothers of Hong Kong.
The story is about an ominous darkness that invades a Sunflower farm in the US state of North Dakota.
The farm starts reviving after years of decline, but its resident family begins to notice alarming changes in their father's behavior.
