‘Squid Game’ star Lee Jung-jae debuts as director in Cannes

Lee Jung-jae, the award-winning star of Netflix's “Squid Game,” spent years developing the 1980s-set Korean spy thriller “Hunt” before electing to direct himself. He did it a little reluctantly, without big plans to continue filmmaking. But Lee did have a vision for what it could be — and where it could premiere. “Before deciding to direct, I thought I just wanted to make a very fun film,” Lee says. “After I got my hands on it and started writing the script myself, I actually wanted to come to Cannes. Because I wanted to come to Cannes, I had to find the subject matter that would resonate with the global audience.” Few actors know more about capturing the attention of the global audience than Lee. Already one of Korea's top movie stars, the 49-year-old Lee is at the nexus of the “Squid Ga

Young California mountain lion roams 100 miles between beach and mountains

An adventurous young mountain lion that escaped the recent Coastal fire and has successfully crossed through cities and the 91 Freeway has lived a “charmed life” so far, but researchers tracking him worry his future holds many dangers giving him only a 50% to 60% survival rate. For the last few weeks, the approximately 20-month-old lion has been roaming south of the 5 freeway and the 73 toll road, passing by and, in some cases through, the communities of Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo and Corona del Mar. Previously he ran into the open door of an Irvine building. The cat, which is being tracked with a signal from a collar, has traversed more than 100 miles (as the crow flies) in about eight weeks across Southern California, traveling from the Santa Ana Mountains to the beach and

Migrants cross border amid legal uncertainty on asylum rule

As U.S. officials anxiously waited, many of the migrants crossing the border from Mexico on Friday were oblivious to a pending momentous court ruling on whether to maintain pandemic-related powers that deny a chance to seek asylum on grounds of preventing the spread of COVID-19. The Justice Department, hoping to avoid last-minute scrambling over the weekend, asked U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays to decide by Friday whether to keep Title 42 in place while litigation proceeds. The judge in Lafayette, Louisiana, has said he would decide by Monday, when the public health powers are scheduled to expire. Migrants crossing in Eagle Pass, Texas, knew little or nothing about the rule under which migrants have been expelled more than 1.9 million times since March 2020. They were largely from C

George Miller’s ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’ Looks Like a Delightfully Chaotic Romp

MGMRobin Williams and Will Smith are passing down the torch to Idris Elba. In the first trailer for George Miller’s upcoming film Three Thousand Years of Longing, Tilda Swinton meets her very own Genie in total Aladdin fashion—just a bit zanier. Gone are the days of the blue, wise-cracking, fairy tale Genie. This guy has a dark sense of humor and a lot more cynicism—and yet, he’s still got three wishes to offer. “My name is Alithea,” Tilda Swinton’s character intones at the start, as she writes her novel The Three Thousand Years of Longing. “My story is true. You’re more likely to believe me, however, if I tell it as a fairy tale.” (This is what she’s writing in her book, at least, next to scribbles of random numbers. Her narration is a bit skewed.) While visiting Istanbul, Alithea encoun...
