New Movies for Second Week of May
Yes, it's Friday and that means a check of what's new at the movies.
It looks like our Son Heekyung is going to give us a preview of two Korean and two Hollywood productions.
Let's take a look.
Director Noh Dongseok has released his second feature film ''Boys of Tomorrow.''
Two boys want to escape from their bleak lives.
One collects model guns and dreams of buying a real one.
The other works long hours, and hopes to go to the Maldives to play the drums.
Both are optimistic over their youth, but unexpected events start to blur their dreams.
Another new film from Korea is the family-orientated, ''Sorrow Even Up in Heaven.''
The drama is a remake of the successful 1960s film of the same title.
A man destroys his family after getting addicted to gambling.
The mother runs away from home leaving her 13-year-old daughter to take care of her three younger siblings.
The director says he wanted to give strength and hope to youngsters put on the spot through his film.
From Hollywood comes the Academy Award winner ''Marie Antoinette,'' loosely based on the life of the French queen.
The drama is the first full-length feature in English since the 1938 film of the same title.
The film covers her marriage to Louis XVI at age 15, and her reign as queen four years later.
Last up is ''Next'', based on a short story by the late sci-fi novelist Philip K. Dick.
Nicolas Cage plays a Las Vegas magician who can see a few minutes into the future.
He keeps a low profile to avoid the government and medical scientists, but intervenes when he foresees a shooting at a casino.
The FBI then seeks his services after a terrorist group threatens to detonate a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles.
