THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD

'A riot of non-stop, stylistically audacious action.... It's a blast - literally' THE TIMES

ONE MAP. THREE VILLIANS. WINNER TAKES ALL.

Directed by Kim Jee-Woon, The Good, The Bad, The Weird is the smash hit Box-Office sensation with over 7 million cinema admissions in South Korea alone.

Set in the 1930's Manchurian desert where lawlessness rules, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. Do-Won (JUNG Woo-sung) is a bounty hunter who tracks down dangerous criminals. Chang-yi (LEE Byung-hun) is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits. Tae-goo (SONG Kang-ho) is a train robber with nine lives. The three strangers engage in a chase across Manchuria to take possession of a map Tae-goo discovers while robbing the train. Also on the hunt for the mysterious map are the Japanese army and Asian bandits. In this unpredictable, escalating battle for the map, who will stand as the winner in the end?

Directed by Kim Jee-Woon (A BITTERSWEET LIFE) the film stars Song Kang-ho (THE HOST), Jung Woo-sung (THE RESTLESS) and Lee Byung-hun (A BITTERSWEET LIFE, G.I. JOE).

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD will open in cinemas across the country 6th February 2009.
