‘Lady Vengeance’ Gets Bumped to Spring

Most studio execs will tell you releasing a movie in April in death, but smart ones will tell you “if the movie is right” April is perfect. Tartan Films has announced that they’ll now be releasing Chan-wook Park’s highly anticipated finale in his trilogy, Lady Vengeance, on April 21st, a big bump from the original February 2nd date. I say their patients will pay off big, and if marketed right the movie could crearte some major buzz. If you are a fan Park’s Oldboy or Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance then it’s time to start paying attention, this one is gonna rock. Lee Geum-Ja, at the age of 19, goes to prison for the murder and abduction of a child on behalf of her accomplice Mr. Baek, only to find out that she is betrayed. While in prison, she carefully prepares for her revenge by winning the hearts of her fellow inmates with her kindness, thus earning herself the nickname ‘kind Ms. Geum-Ja’. Upon her release from prison after 13 years, she finally sets out to seek revenge on Baek, with the help of her former prison mates.
