Here's a trailer you can take home to Mother

2006's THE HOST, from Korean director Bong Joon-ho, was one of the best films of that year, being not only a top shelf monster flick but also a touching and often funny family drama. That was the beauty of THE HOST, its deft mixture of dramatic and comedic sensibilities. Will MOTHER (not to be confused with the 1996 Albert Brooks comedy of the same name) follow suit? I don't know, but judging from its trailer, it sure does look slick. Of what I have heard, though, Bong Joon-ho has another winner on his hands.

MOTHER will do unmotherly things to you come March 12. Head on over to Apple to check out the trailer in HD!

The synopsis: Hye-ja is a single mom to 27-year-old Do-joon. Her son is her raison d’être. Though an adult in years, Do-joon is naïve and dependent on his mother, and a constant source of anxiety, often behaving in ways that are foolish or simply dangerous. Walking home alone one night down a nearly empty city street, he encounters a young girl who he follows for a while before she disappears into a dark alley. The next morning, she is found dead in an abandoned building and Do-joon is accused of her murder. Thanks to an inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force, Do-joon’s case is quickly closed, but his mother refuses to let this be the end of the story. Trusting no one, Hye-ja’s maternal instincts kick into overdrive, and she sets out to find the girl’s killer and prove her son’s innocence.

Extra Tidbit: There's apparently a first-person shooter video game in the works for THE HOST which is kind of mind-boggling.
