Nice to see THE CHASER doing well. The low-budget thriller got really good reviews and seems to have found an audience. But how long can it hold on? On Thursday, it will have to compete against the 3:10 TO YUMA, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN and DEATHNOTE: L.
FOREVER THE MOMENT has now officially passed the 4-million-admissions mark, making it the biggest Korean hit since D-WAR.

As long as I am mentioning coming films, Feb. 28 sees the Korean release of Hong Sang-soo's NIGHT AND DAY and Cristian Mungiu's Cannes-winner 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS. And RAMBO 4.
March 6 is the happy day THERE WILL BE BLOOD comes out, which is the movie I really, really want to see. Wong Kar-wai's MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS comes out then, too.
