Fresh off its premiere at Cannes, where it received a four-minute standing ovation last month, director Jung Byung-gil’s South Korean action-thriller The Villainess is arriving here in the States on August 25th through Well Go USA, Bloody Disgusting learned.
The movie is as baddass as John Wick and even the ass-kicking Atomic Blonde. Kalyn stated out of the Fantasia Film Festival that limbs fly in the ultra-violent, vixen-led Villainess.
The film is, “The story of a ruthless female assassin named Sook-hee, who from an early age has been taught to kill. She becomes a sleeper agent for South Korea’s intelligence agency, who promises her freedom after 10 years of service; however, two men from her past make an unexpected appearance in her life, bringing out dark secrets from her past.””
Kim Ok-bin stars alongside Shin Ha-kyun, Sung Joon, Kim Seo-hyung, Jung Hae-kyun, Min Ye-ji, Jo Eun-ji and Park Chul-min.
