Bong Joon Ho’s Best Picture winner “Parasite” and his 2003 film “Memories of Murder” will receive special edition releases as part of the Criterion Collection, the “Parasite” distributor Neon and Criterion announced Thursday.There’s no target release date for the special home video releases yet or whether the films will immediately become available on The Criterion Channel for streaming, but it’s rare to see Criterion partner with a distributor to specially release a movie still in theaters.Criterion just released a special edition of Netflix’s “Roma,” which was nominated for Best Picture in 2019, and Criterion also recently partnered with Neon on Céline Sciamma’s “Portrait of a Lady on Fire,” which is opening in theaters in limited release this weekend.Also Read: 'Parasite' Director's Korean American Interpreter Wants to Make Her Own Movie - About the Oscar SeasonBong’s “Memories of Murder” was released in 2003 and marked the first of Bong’s collaborations with Song Kang Ho.

Bong’s film premiered at Cannes and won the Palme d’Or, and since debuting in American theaters in October, it has grossed over $35 million at the domestic box office.The film is a bleak satire of wealth and the class divide about a poor family who strategically works to install themselves in luxury jobs for a gullible and oblivious rich family, only to discover a dark secret from within the family’s home.Read original story ‘Parasite’ and ‘Memories of Murder’ From Bong Joon Ho to Join Criterion Collection At TheWrap

What happened at the 2020 Oscars? From silly cat costumes, the political statements, and surprise wins, the 92nd Academy Awards had it all.
Bong Joon Ho's "Parasite" won the best international film prize at the 92nd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night, making history as the first South Korean film to do so. The thriller was nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture, and was already the first South Korean feature to be nominated for best international […]
J-Lo didn't make the Oscars cut, and neither did Robert De Niro. But there will be some stars excited at unexpected Oscars success.
Golden Globe winners “1917” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” have both been nominated for the Producers Guild of America’s top film award, along with a slate of nominees that also includes “Parasite,” “The Irishman,” “Marriage Story” and “Little Women.”Rounding out the PGA list, which is typically an accurate predictor of Oscar success are “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Knives Out” and the most-nominated film in Tuesday morning’s BAFTA nominations, “Joker.”“Parasite” is the second film not in English to be nominated in the last two years, after “Roma” last year. The only other non-English films to be nominated in this century were 2000’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” 2006’s “Babel” and 2007’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.”Also Read: BAFTA Nominations Put '1917' in the Awards Spotlight Again - and 'Joker,' TooThe 10 films on the list include almost all of the movies deemed most likely to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture, with “Knives Out” perhaps coming as the only slight surprise. Films not included on the Producers Guild slate include “The Farewell,” “The Two Popes,” “Bombshell,” “Pain and Glory” and “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”While the omission may be particularly troubling for “The Farewell” and “Bombshell,” the PGA has a history of bypassing smaller indie films in favor of more commercially successful productions.Two producers have double nominations in the feature film category: David Heyman, who produced both “Marriage Story” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood,” and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, who produced “The Irishman” and “Joker.”In the animation category, the Producers Guild nominated a slate of high-profile U.S. films: “Abominable,” “Frozen II,” “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” “Missing Link” and “Toy Story 4.”Also Read: Golden Globes Analysis: The Stars Ignore Ricky Gervais on a Night of SurprisesTelevision nominations included “The Crown,” “Big Little Lies,” “Succession,” “Watchmen” and the final season of “Game of Thrones” in the drama category, and “Barry,” “Fleabag,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “Veep” in comedy. “Chernobyl,” “Fosse/Verdon,” “True Detective,” “Unbelievable” and “When They See Us” were nominated in the limited series category, while “Deadwood” and “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Story” were among the nominees for TV movies.The guild also nominated in non-fiction, live entertainment and talk, and game and talk television categories. The full list of nominees is below.A Producers Guild feature-film nomination is a reliable predictor of Oscar success: Since the Academy and the Guild both expanded from five to 10 nominees in 2009, 78 of the 101 Producers Guild nominees have gone on to receive Oscar nominations.But the two awards never align completely: Last year, for instance, eight of the 10 Producers Guild Awards nominees received Oscar nominations, while two — “Crazy Rich Asians” and “A Quiet Place” – did not.Also Read: Golden Globes Most Memorable Moments, From F-Word Jokes to Michelle Williams' Pro Choice PleaIn the first 29 years of the Producers Guild Awards, which began in 1989, the nominations exactly matched the Oscars only three times: 1992, 1993 and 1994, when both categories consisted of five nominees. Only once, in 1996, has the eventual Oscar Best Picture winner (which was “Braveheart” that year) not been first nominated by the guild.The Producers Guild is the third of the four major Hollywood guilds to announce its nominations for the films of 2019. The Screen Actors Guild announced in December, while the Writers Guild revealed its film nominees on Monday and the Directors Guild will do so on the same day as the PGA.PGA winners will be announced at the Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 18.The nominations:The Darryl F.

Bong Joon Ho‘s “Parasite” won Best Picture from the National Society of Film Critics, which met at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City on Saturday to choose its winners for the 54th time. The South Korean drama also won Best Screenplay from the group.The society recognized two indies for the top acting prizes: Mary Kay Place for “Diane” and Antonio Banderas for Pedro Almodóvar’s “Pain and Glory.” The supporting acting honors went to Brad Pitt for “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” and Laura Dern for her work in both “Marriage Story” and “Little Women.”The National Society of Film Critics was established in 1966, with its co-founders including Pauline Kael, Joe Morgenstern and Richard Schickel.

The first six months of 2020 will yield Robert Pattinson going mad in a lighthouse, several Oscar contenders and Pixar tugging heartstrings all over again.
The year in film for 2019 is nearly over — pending Star Wars , Cats , and Jumanji of course — with the movie industry delivering dozens of memorable films, whether for good or bad reasons. But now it’s time to put the movies of 2019 to one side and take a look at the year to come. It’s a year without the Star Wars mega-franchise and with the Marvel Cinematic Universe undergoing a period of reinvention as the dust settles in the wake of the biggest movie ever made . There are plenty of blockbusters to look forward to in the coming 12 months, but there’s also an entire Oscar season to work through and a whole host of interesting, smaller movies that will make a big impression when they land in cinemas. Here are just 50 of the best films to keep an eye out for next year.
