One More Epic Official Trailer for Korean Sci-Fi Action Movie ‘Alienoid’ | Watch Trailer
Korea’s CJ Entertainment has unveiled another official trailer for the epic sci-fi movie, Alienoid, which is finally set for a US release, as reported by First Showing.
The movie is expected to arrive in US theaters at the end of August and this follows two previous trailers for the movie, which makes this a third.
The Plot of the ‘Alienoid’
During the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392), Taoists try to take a mysterious holy sword. Meanwhile in present day (in 2022), aliens appear on Earth. A time door soon connects the late Goryeo period and the present day. The two parties cross paths when a time-traveling portal opens, causing chaos and confusion.
For ages, aliens have locked up their prisoners in humans’ bodies. In the year 2022, Guard (Kim Woo-bin) and Thunder live on Earth, managing alien prisoners who have been locked up in humans’ brains. One day, a spacecraft appears in the sky over Seoul, and the police detective Moon (So Ji-sub, “Moon”) witnesses a strange sight… Those who pursue alien prisoners locked in human bodies in the year 2022, and the sorcerers who pursue the legendary Divine Blade in the year 1391… When the door of time opens, everything becomes entangled!
The science fiction action fantasy features a cast that includes Ryu Jun-yeol as the master swordsman, Kim Tae-ri as “a woman who shoots thunder”, Kim Woo-bin, So Ji-seob, Yum Jung-ah, Kim Eui-eung, Lee Ha-nee, and Jo Woo-jin.
It’s hard to tell if this is still being released as two parts in the US, but for now it’s just being promoted as the Alienoid movie.
Alienoid, also known as 외계+인 1부 in Korean – which translates directly to Oegye+in 1bu or Alien+Human Part 1, is both written & directed by Korean filmmaker Choi Dong-hoon, director of the movies ‘The Big Swindle,’ ‘Tazza: The High Rollers,’ ‘Jeon Woochi,’ ‘The Thieves,’ ‘The Little Penguin Pororo’s Racing Adventure,’ ‘Assassination,’ and ‘Wiretap’ previously.
It’s produced by Caper Film and filming originally began in March 2020. Both first & second parts were filmed simultaneously for 13 months, with filming wrapping up last April.
CJ ENM already released Alienoid Part 1 in South Korean cinemas in July while Go USA will debut the sci-fi movie in select US theaters starting on August 26th 2022.
