Director Jung Byung-gil’s South Korean action-thriller The Villainess is arriving here in the States on home video this November through Well Go USA, Bloody Disgusting learned. It will be debuting on digital November 7 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD November 21.
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, which received a standing ovation at Cannes, 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.
