    It was only released theatrically in Korea recently, so we're still a couple months from a DVD release.

    I definitely can see it making an art house run early next year, so don't give up hope on seeing it in a theater. Magnolia Pictures has domestic distribution from what I understand.

    K... just got back from this...
    Holy shit... this is what a monster movie should be! Its got action (like 10 minutes in... insane!) its got the perfect blend of comedy too... emotional kicks... scary bits... Great Characters! The creature is one of the best creatures I have ever seen in a film... this thing jumps, climbs, swims... swallows people whole... Its got alot of socio-political stuff going on too... Director Bong Joon-Ho made an appearance as well and I stayed for the Q&A after the film... Man... I need to see this again. 10/10

    Looks like a cool movie... I wonder if they'll ever release it here on cinemas. Korean flick...a bit difficult sadly.

    Shit....

    I got the wrong info. Here is the correct info:

    The Host is currently scheduled for release in UK Cinemas on 10th November 2006.

    At kfccinema.com, it said the Hong Kong DVD is scheduled for release on December 1st... at yesasia.com... but I couldn't find it listed there for pre-order or any announcement rather when I checked...
