Director Kim Ki-duk to Be Fined in Actress Assault Case (Report)
Leading art-house film director, Kim Ki-duk is expected to be fined in a case of assault against an actress.

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office said on Thursday that it has indicted Kim on a summary offense with a penalty of $4,570 (KRW5 million), according to the Yonhap news agency.

The incident occurred in 2013 during the filming of Kim’s award-winning film “Moebius.” The actress, whose identity has been withheld, claims that Kim slapped her in the face while shooting the movie and forced her to take part in an unscripted, violent sex scene. She withdrew from the production and was replaced by Lee Eun-woo.

Kim acknowledged the incident in August, but denied assault. “On our first day on set, we were shooting the film’s very first scene where the husband and the wife were having a fierce fight, beating each other. I would have either slapped the actress from her partner’s subjective Pov, as

Lena Headey Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Harassment: ‘I Felt Completely Powerless’
Lena Headey has accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment in a series of four tweets posted to her official Twitter page that detail an encounter with the former head of The Weinstein Company that left the “Game of Thrones” star in tears. Headey first met Weinstein at the Venice Film Festival where she was promoting Terry Gilliam’s “The Brothers Grimm.” Miramax was co-distributor of the movie that also starred Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.

“At one point Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked,” Headey writes. “I remember thinking, ‘It’s got to be a joke.’ I said something like, ‘Oh come on mate?! It’d be like kissing my dad! Let’s go get a drink, get back to the others.

BiFan: ‘The Twin’ Heads Awards at Naff Genre Project Market

BiFan: ‘The Twin’ Heads Awards at Naff Genre Project Market
The $14,000 (KRW15 million) Bucheon Award to “The Twin” brought to a close on Tuesday the 10th edition of Naff. The genre film project market has become an integral part of the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, better known as BiFan, in South Korea.

Other notable winners were “Man of Sin,” an ambitious thriller by first time Chinese writer-director Will Bu, which earned two prizes, and “Imaginable,” a Korea-U.S. animation by Chris Martin.

Bu said he had spent years preparing his thank you speech, which he peppered with expletives and a warning about too much fame. Taneli Mustoonen and Aleksi Hyvarinen, the Finnish director and producer of “The Twin,” in contrast, thanked the Seoul bus driver who had paid their fare after the pair had become lost in the mega city with no money, no language skills, and two smart phones exhausted from taking photos all evening.

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Jimmy Is, Once Again, ‘A Little Bit Crooked’
Last Week’S Review: Brotherly Love Goes Bad as Danger Mounts in the Season 3 Premiere

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Better Call Saul” Season 3, Episode 2, “Witness.”]

Case Summary

On the surface, things initially look good for fledging law practice Wexler-McGill — at the very least, they’ve got a pip of a new assistant and fancy new wall art. However, there’s danger lurking thanks to a tip-off from Ernie about Chuck’s recording of Jimmy’s confession. Kim has a legal strategy mapped out to take care of things, but when Jimmy loses his temper and decides to take matters into his own hands, the results are explosive.

Meanwhile, Mike’s efforts to figure out who’s been tracking him lead to everyone’s favorite chicken joint: Los Pollos Hermanos, where some very familiar faces lie in wait. The episode ends with Mike getting a call — a call which seems likely to change his life.

Kim Zolciak is no stranger to television or to social media.

Trespass Against Us: another British gangster movie in which crime doesn’t pay off

This father-son tale set in rural Britain lacks the twisted bite of its Us counterparts and can’t decide what it’s really about

Related: Trespass Against Us review: even Fassbender and Gleeson can't make every criminal charming

British crime movies have never been short of dysfunctional families. Think of the brothers in Get Carter, and how the survivor once impregnated his dead brother’s wife. Or the Kray twins – be they Kemps or Hardys – the mentally ill brother taking the sane one down with him, come what may, and a wife driven to suicide by their toxic relationship. Or Ray Winstone in Face, a loving dad brought to grief by his daughter’s boyfriend, a bent Met copper.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast The Batman

  • LRM Online
In this new weekly feature, exclusive to Lrm, we'll do a bit of Fantasy Hiring for your favorite fanboy projects. The inaugural Fantasy Friday project will be Ben Affleck's DC epic:

The Batman.

If you grew up in the 90s, and you were a comic book fan, you likely occasionally got your hands on an issue of Wizard Magazine. They used to have a great, recurring feature where they'd do dream-casting for superhero films. It's funny to think that back then the idea of superhero movies were sort of a novelty. It seemed far-fetched that we'd ever get an X-Men, a Justice League, or an Avengers film one day, and so those features truly felt like a fevered fanboy pipe dream.

Little did we know what the millennium would bring...

Scully and I were recently talking about those great, old Wizard magazines. We recalled how, in 1995, they proposed that

So, to get you up to speed before heading to the multiplex, we’re giving you a top ten list of facts about the “master of mystic arts”. First, a look at his lineage….

1. Doctor Strange Has Lots Of “Magic Hero” Predecessors Let’s go back over a 100 years, when magicians where a popular part of live entertainment. Many real-life stage performers like Houdini and Blackstone branched out into the printed page, starring in fictional exploits via booklets called “penny dreadfuls” which became the lurid pulp novels.

Newswire: R.I.P. Kim McGuire, Cry-Baby’s “Hatchet-Face”

Kim McGuire, a New Orleans native whose film career wasn’t long, but was certainly memorable, has died. She was admitted to a Florida hospital on Tuesday with pneumonia; she did not respond to treatment, and died yesterday of cardiac arrest. Her husband, TV graphic and sound designer Gene Piotrowsky, broke the news on Twitter, saying, “Today is a very sad day. Kim “hatchet face” McGuire my best friend, and the love of my life [passed] away this afternoon. I love you so much.” She was 60.

As Piotrowsky mentioned in his tweet, McGuire was most famous for her role in John Waters’ Cry-Baby, where she dramatically exaggerated her features with makeup to play Mona “Hatchet-Face” Malnorowski, a tough-as-nails girl gang member who The New York Times described as “a hideously contorted floozy” in its review of the film. The character of Hatchet-Face became a breakout hit, and McGuire began
