If not for the fact that we posted the sales promo for Tony Jaa's Ong Bak 2 just a few days ago this new trailer for Kim Jee-woon's Korean western The Good, The Bad and The Weird would surely go down as the trailer of the year. The director of A Bittersweet Life and A Tale of Two Sisters has always been one of Korea's greatest visual talents - a huge compliment considering just how well most Korean films are shot - but he has seldom been as energetic and playful as he is here. The cast is stellar, the scope of the thing impressive, the action sequences crackle the use of music is clever, and golly won't the ladies go crazy for Lee Byung Hyun's eyeliner? Reception in Cannes was fantastic and it's easy to see why.
You can check out the new theatrical trailer as well as the English subtitled sales promo in the ScreenAnarchy Player below the break.
