Just a few weeks back we broke the news about a new Korean anthology entitled Doomsday Book, an omnibus sci-fi project by two helmers that looks to blow all of our friggin’ mind some time this year.
The brilliant Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil, A Tale of Two Sisters) tells the story of a robot working for a temple who becomes self-aware, while Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel) follows an innocent young man who becomes a zombie! There’s apparently also a tale about a meteor (shaped like an crazy 8-ball) about to crash into Earth.
“Two acclaimed Korean directors unfurl three unique stories of human self-destruction in the modern high-tech era. In a hope to restore the humane compassion in the insusceptible modern age, the film displays an alternative form of genuine humanity. And thus you are stepping into the world of future, where a series of unexpected stories awaits you. All these stories originate from the earth. From the very earth you live on.”
It’s visually staggering and looks to be one of the few “must sees” of 2012. Watch the second Korean trailer inside and then tell us what your thoughts are. Pretty friggin’ cool, no?!
