Korean Cinema has been establishing a gripping choke-hold on global audiences, Emergency Declaration is no exception, this gripping trailer left us barely breathing.
Emergency Declaration will be released earlier in South Korea, but will be hitting the U.S. in August of 2022. With a month left before we’re rivited, no action packed film has left us this on edge since Train to Busan. Emergency Declaration (Korean: 비상선언) is a 2021 South Korean disaster-action film directed by Han Jae-rim, starring South Korea’s A-List: Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon and Kim Nam-gil. The film is based on a real aviation disaster in which an aeroplane declared high alert and demanded unconditional landing. The official synopsis leaves us this morsel: “After a terror incident occurs mid-flight, a passenger jet declares an emergency.” Will you be watching? We’re already setting our calendar reminders.
Previously shut down due to Covid-19, the filming restarted on September 12, 2020, after postponement due to a COVID-19 resurgence in August of 2020.
