the killer remake

The Killer was not John Woo’s first movie, but it was the movie that put the director and his instantly recognizable flavor of Hong Kong action on the international map. American action films have spent the past 30 years shamelessly cribbing from Woo’s filmography, so a Hollywood remake of this bonafide classic was inevitable. The news that this is finally happening is not surprising.

What is surprising is that Woo himself is returning to direct and that Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o will star, gender-swapping the role originally played by Chow Yun-Fat. And like that, I’m suddenly interested in a The Killer remake.

black panther casino fight

In the hype-filled weeks leading up to the release of Black Panther, one of the few scenes to be shown in its entirety was the casino fight scene. And for good reason.

In a movie teeming with exciting action scenes, the casino fight stands out. Taking place on two levels of an illicit casino in South Korea, it’s perhaps the most stylish and stylized of all the battles in Black Panther not simply because of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), and Okoye’s (Danai Gurira) glamorous outfits. It’s because the scene has the balletic choreography and assured camera work of a great action film. And for a Marvel movie, that’s saying something.

In a video for Vanity Fair, director Ryan Coogler breaks down the minutiae of the scene, including everything from the colors of T’Challa, Nakia, and Okoye’s outfits, to that iconic wig-throwing moment.
