A24 has released an official trailer for Minari, an upcoming film starring Steven Yeun. It had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year where it took home both the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize and the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award. So yeah, this is an Oscars contender.
Yeun was my favorite actor on The Walking Dead, and since his departure I’ve been following his career. Mayhem proved he had leading man potential, and Minari shows he’s got the dramatic chops to take any project that comes across his desk. I’ll definitely be checking this one out.
Oh, and he’s also who I think DC should cast to play Nightwing in the DCEU. I could definitely see Yeun embodying a Dick Grayson that has years of built up hatred for Ben Affleck’s Batman. Now tell me you wouldn’t want to see that.
Minari currently does not have a release date. We’ll keep you posted.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
