the good, the bad and the weird

A movie I've been hearing about on the internet for a while is The Good, The Bad and the Weird, a South Korean western from Kim Ji-Woon, the director of A Bittersweet Life and A Tale of Two Sisters. Yeah, you read that right. Korean western. "Oriental Western," actually. And it looks absolutely crazy.

A new theatrical trailer hit the web a few days ago, and it looks awesome. It doesn't appear to take place during any part of Korean history that I'm aware of, but damn, it just looks like a ton of fun. View it here (sorry, no subtitles). The movie opens in Korea on July 17, which means it'll probably be a while before we see it here Stateside. Can't wait.
