"Do you see this kind of thing in Seoul often?" Neon + Artificial Eye have released trailers for the new 4K re-release of Bong Joon-ho's Memories of Murder, his second feature film that he made in 2003 following Barking Dogs Never Bite. With Parasite taking the world by storm last year (and at the Oscars this year) there's no better time than now to get people back into Bong Joon-ho. This film is considered one of his all-time greatest, and it has been "remastered" in 4K and will be getting a limited release in the US this fall, in addition to the UK. Inspired by true events, it blends true-crime with social satire and even comedy. In a small Korean province in 1986, two detectives struggle with the case of multiple young women being found raped and murdered by an unknown culprit. Song Kang-ho (who later starred in Mr. Vengeance, Thirst, Snowpiercer, Parasite) stars as Detective Park Doo-man. The cast includes Kim Sang-kyung, Kim Roi-ha, Song Jae-ho, Byun Hee-bong, and Go Seo-hee. There's two new posters for each country as well, and info on the theatrical screenings listed below.
