Local films announce long-awaited theatrical premieres
Local films, whose theatrical premieres were delayed because of the pandemic, are lining up to be released during one of the busiest seasons for the local box office — end-of-the-year and new-year holidays.
“Emergency Declaration,” with a star-studded cast of Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun and Jeon Do-yeon, is slated for release in January, according to its distributor Showbox on Thursday.
Directed by Han Jae-rim of “The Face Reader” (2013) and “The King” (2017), the film is set on an airplane which has to make an emergency landing.
“The Policeman’s Lineage” starring actors Cho Jin-woong and Choi Woo-shik and “The Pirates: Goblin Flag” (translated) starring actors Kang Ha-neul and Han Hyo-joo are also expected to premiere in January.
“Kingmaker,” starring actors Seol Kyung-gu and Lee Sun-kyun, and “Happy New Year” starring actors Han Ji-min, Lee Dong-wook, Kang Ha-neul and Im Yoon-A are preparing for theatrical premieres next month.
