D-War... Finally

According to the recent buzz around the net, the South Korean monster movie D-War is at long last getting a theatrical release in its home country as well as a limited run in the U.S. (sometime in August). The film is rumored to be the most expensive Korean movie to date with a hefty price tag of around 70 million (equivalent U.S.) dollars or so.

Having watched a couple of the more recent trailers, I got a better sense of what the plot is actually about and it’s not a “monster on the loose” setup as I had initially assumed. Rather, the story is a fantasy adventure piece centered on two lovers from ancient Korea that have been reincarnated in modern-day Los Angeles; the giant cobra creature adorning the poster image is apparently the villain of the film. Hmm...
