South Korean film ‘Cold Eyes’ will be screened at the upcoming ‘38th Toronto International Film Festival’.
The Toronto International Film Festival is one of the top 4 international film festivals in the world alongside Cannes, Venice, and Berlin, and is the largest scale film festival in the whole of North America. The festival is expected to draw an attendance of up to 400,000 moviegoers.
This year’s festival will be held from September 5th – 15th, and ‘Cold Eyes’ will be screened in the festival’s Gala Presentations. The Gala Presentations ranks as the festival’s biggest and most important segment.
Meanwhile, ‘American Dreams in China’, ‘The Art of the Steal’, ‘August: Osage County’, and ‘Rush’ are the other films besides ‘Cold Eyes’ to be screened in the Gala Presentations.
‘Cold Eyes’ will become the 3rd South Korean film to make it to the Gala Presentations of the Toronto International Film Festival, after ‘The Housemaid’ (2010) and ‘The Good, The Bad, The Weird’ (2008).
The Asia programmer for the festival had made a visit to South Korea recently to catch a VIP screening of ‘Cold Eyes’ and was left feeling mightily impressed. He stated that that the film was really interesting, and was full of tension and thrills from start to finish. He concluded by saying that it was a film that was definitely worth a second view in the cinemas.
With ‘Cold Eyes’ confirmed for the festival, directors Jo Eui Seok and Kim Byung Suh, as well as actors Sol Kyung Gu, Jung Woo Sung, Han Hyo Joo and 2PM’s Junho will be stepping onto the red carpet at Toronto. This will be Jung Woo Sung’s second time in Toronto, after ‘The Good, The Bad, The Weird’. Jung Woo Sung received loud cheers the last time he was in Toronto, that were definitely on a par with those enjoyed by Hollywood stars. The 2nd appearance of Jung Woo Sung is thus likely to grab the attention of moviegoers all over the world once more.
