SEOUL, June 4, 2020 – Netflix has confirmed the casting of Ji Jin-hee, Lee Jae-wook and Hong Seung-hee for its new Korean original series Move to Heaven, which stars Lee Je-hoon and Tang Jun-sang as lead roles.

Move to Heaven tells the story of Geu-ru, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, and Sang-gu, who suddenly finds himself as Geu-ru’s guardian. The two work as trauma cleaners, clearing out the possessions of the deceased and uncovering the many stories that are left behind.

Ji Jin-hee (Designated Survivor: 60 Days, Misty) makes a special appearance as Geu-ru’s father Jeong-u who is a kind and affectionate man. He operates Move to Heaven, a disposal service for the personal belongings of the deceased, and designates his younger brother Sang-gu as Geu-ru’s guardian.

Lee Jae-wook (When the Weather Is Fine, Extraordinary You, Search WWW), makes a special appearance as Su-cheol, who had been involved with Sang-gu being sent to prison. Su-cheol’s appearance will pique viewers’ curiosity not only for more insight into Sang-gu’s past but also about Move to Heaven in general.

Hong Seung-hee (Who Kissed Me?, I Wanna Hear Your Song, Memorist) plays Na-mu, a key character alongside Geu-ru and Sang-gu. Na-mu lives next door to Geu-ru and considers him as family and is protective of him. She keeps a careful eye on Sang-gu, who suddenly becomes Geu-ru’s guardian.

Move to Heaven, directed by Kim Sung-ho (How to Steal a Dog) and written by Yoon Ji-ryun (Boys Over Flowers and Angel Eyes), will be available worldwide, exclusively on Netflix.

SEOUL, June 1, 2020 – Netflix has confirmed the premiere of Record of Youth, a new series starring Park Bo-gum, Park So-dam and Byeon Woo-seok, for the latter half of 2020.

Record of Youth is directed by An Gil-ho, who has a solid track record with Stranger, Memories of Alhambra and WATCHER, and written by Ha Myeong-hee, who has penned many heart-warming stories grounded in realistic settings, including Doctors and Temperature of Love.

Park Bo-gum (Encounter, Reply 1988, Love in the Moonlight) will play Sa Hye-jun, a pragmatic and ambitious young man, who is an aspiring model/actor juggling idealism with the reality of everyday life.

Park So-dam (Parasite, Cinderella with Four Knights), with her commanding onscreen presence, will play An Jeong-ha, an aspiring makeup artist and a smart young woman with a strong sense of self.

Because he gives his utmost effort to the things he cares deeply about, he cannot stand being brushed off just because he was born into privilege.

THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE AND NETFLIX JOIN FORCES





THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE AND NETFLIX JOIN FORCES TO PRESERVE HOLLYWOOD’S HISTORIC EGYPTIAN THEATRE
The collaboration will allow the American Cinematheque to expand the scope and diversity of programming, while continuing the nonprofit’s mission to celebrate the experience of cinema as a moving art form

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 29, 2020 — Netflix and the American Cinematheque are joining forces to ensure the long-term future of the Egyptian Theatre, site of the first Hollywood movie premiere and the long-time home of the American Cinematheque. This collaboration will enable the nonprofit American Cinematheque to expand the scope and diversity of its widely praised movie and event programming, its filmmaker-centric festivals and its educational outreach at the beloved theater.

Established in Los Angeles in 1984 as a nonprofit member-supported cultural organization, the American Cinematheque creates spaces where both the public and members of the film industry come together as a community with the common language of film. The Egyptian Theatre will remain the home of the American Cinematheque with the organization’s celebrated curation team continuing to autonomously program Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Netflix will invest in the theater’s renovation and will use the revitalized space for special events, screenings and premieres during the week.

“The Egyptian Theatre is an incredible part of Hollywood history and has been treasured by the Los Angeles film community for nearly a century,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix Films. “We’re honored to partner with the American Cinematheque to preserve the theater’s storied legacy and continue providing remarkable film experiences for audiences. We look forward to expanding programming at the theater in ways that will benefit both cinema lovers and the community.”

“The American Cinematheque was honored to bring the Egyptian back to life in 1998, and together with Netflix we are thrilled to continue this stewardship by restoring it once again for a new generation of film fans to experience movies on the big screen,” said Chairman of the American Cinematheque, Rick Nicita. “The Egyptian Theatre remains our Hollywood home and we are grateful to both the City of Los Angeles and the Attorney General of the State of California as we accept this incredible opportunity that will greatly benefit the American Cinematheque.”

“Love for film is inseparable from L.A.’s history and identity,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “We are working toward the day when audiences can return to theaters –– and this extraordinary partnership will preserve an important piece of our cultural heritage that can be shared for years to come.”

“The Netflix and American Cinematheque partnership at the Egyptian Theater is a win-win for film, historic preservation, and the arts,” said Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, Los Angeles City Council 13th District. “The collaboration ensures the cultural destination remains in the Heart of Hollywood for decades to come.”

The Egyptian Theatre is a classic and esteemed movie palace originally built in 1922 during the silent film era. A fixture in Hollywood’s Golden Age, the Egyptian was the site of the first Hollywood movie premiere, of Robin Hood, starring Douglas Fairbanks. At the premiere, Fairbanks was joined by Cecil B. DeMille, Charlie Chaplin, Jesse L. Lasky, and Mary Pickford. Other notable Silent-era premieres held at the Egyptian include: Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments (1923), Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush (1925) and Don Juan (1926) starring John Barrymore and Mary Astor.

The historic venue remains to this day an ultimate destination for moviegoers, where it has hosted groundbreaking film festivals and incredible cinematic experiences over the near-century it has been in Hollywood, the movie-making capital of the world. In 1996, the City of Los Angeles sold the building to the American Cinematheque as part of the City’s Hollywood Revitalization project. The Cinematheque then raised the extensive funds to renovate and restore the theater to its original grandeur and reopened it as a movie theater showcasing the longtime organization’s celebrated public programming.

In 2016, with the generous support of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Turner Classic Movies and The Film Foundation, the projection booth at the Egyptian Theatre was retrofitted to begin screening 35mm nitrate film and is now one of only four theaters in the United States capable of showing this rare, ultra fragile and flammable film stock. Part of the new plans include upgrading equipment to enhance the audience experience, and renovating and restoring the theater.

The Cinematheque will continue to program and operate a second historic theater, the Aero in Santa Monica.

NETFLIX ANNOUNCING THE CAST OF ICELANDIC SERIES KATLA





NETFLIX ANNOUNCING THE CAST OF ICELANDIC SERIES KATLA – BY ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR BALTASAR KORMAKUR

Amsterdam — May 29, 2020 — The filming of the first Icelandic Netflix series Katla has begun. The cast includes Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð, Íris Tanja Flygenring, Ingvar Sigurðsson, Þorsteinn Bachmann, Sólveig Arnarsdóttir, Guðrún Gísladóttir, Baltasar Breki and Björn Thors from Iceland and Aliette Opheim and Valter Skarsgård from Sweden among others. The series is created by the award winning director Baltasar Kormákur (Trapped, Everest) and produced by RVK Studios.

One year after the outbreak of a violent eruption of the subglacial volcano Katla, the peace and tranquility in the small town of Vík has been dramatically disturbed with the eruption still active. The ice near the volcano has been melting, the area has been evacuated and only a few remaining people manage to provide the necessary community service in the village, which is now only accessible by crossing the Markarfljót river. The grand area has turned out to be somewhat apocalyptic and Vík is declared a danger zone.

Mysterious elements, that have been deeply frozen into the glacier from prehistoric times, start to emerge from the melting ice with consequences no one could ever have foreseen

– I‘m really excited about being a part of this ambitious project. My part as GRÍMA is certainly a challenge, but working with Baltasar you just know that it will turn out right. He‘s really great to work with as director. While he gives his actors space to develop their characters and is always open to ideas and suggestions, he knows exactly how he wants things done and you can always be sure that he’ll catch you if you go off track and direct you right back on it, says Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð.

Katla is created by internationally recognized and acclaimed director Baltasar Kormákur.

– After extensive casting sessions, we put together an amazing ensemble cast, mixed with some of Iceland‘s finest and most experienced actors as well as brilliant young emerging talent. I‘m very confident with the choices we made and thoroughly enjoy working with all of them, says Baltasar Kormákur.

The cast also includes Haraldur Ari Stefánsson, Birgitta Birgisdóttir, Helga Braga Jónsdóttir, jörn Ingi Hilmarsson and Aldís Amah Hamilton along with the 9-year old Hlynur Atli Harðarson.

The team writing the story behind the eight part series is in addition to Baltasar Kormákur, co-creators Sigurjón Kjartansson, Davíð Már Stefánsson and Lilja Sigurðardóttir and produced by RVK Studios. Katla will launch on Netflix worldwide. Launch date is still to be announced.
