First Poster for Ji-woon Kim's Sundance Selected 'I Saw the Devil'
Last year I was quite impressed with Ji-woon Kim's off-the-wall spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, the Weird (a film that made Marco's Top 10 of 2010). Therefore, I'm supremely excited to see the director's next feature, I Saw the Devil, when it plays at the Sundance Film Festival this month. Jeremy already delivered an extremely positive review of the film when he saw it at Fantastic Fest last year, but we're just getting the first official poster for the bloody thriller from AICN. Combining the facial symmetry of the Face/Off poster with the grittiness of the Se7en poster (which this is said to embody in tone) and we've got another cool one.

Starring Byung-hun Lee (The Good, the Bad, the Weird) and Min-sik Choi (Lady Vengeance) the story in I Saw the Devil follows a young secret agent as he tracks a brutal serial killer who murdered his fiancée, but the hunter decides he likes playing with his catch. Quint from AICN calls it "brutal, intense and just plain old awesome," while our own Jeremy Kirk says the film is "nothing short of staggering, dark and confident" and "sometimes stunningly beautiful." This is one of many films I'm looking forward to seeing at Sundance - so stay tuned for our coverage. At the moment, this is schedule to hit limited theaters thanks to Magnet Releasing starting on March 4th this spring. Anyone interested? Cool poster - isn't it?
