Official US Trailer for 'The Front Line' - South Korea's Oscar Entry
"This is a story about three million soldiers who fought in the war, not remembering the reason anymore, and died wishing for the end of it." Well Go USA Entertainment has debuted the official US trailer via Apple for Hun Jang's South Korean war action film The Front Line, about the Korean War and the many soldiers who fought in it. This looks quite spectacular and riveting, I'm impressed. A fairly easy comparison to make, but it seems like another South Korean Saving Private Ryan, this time telling the story of their own tragic and deadly civil war. The production in this looks quite stunning, I definitely want to catch it. Watch below!

Toward the end of the Korean War, an uneasy ceasefire is ordered, but out on the Eastern front line of the Aerok Hills, fierce fighting continues. A race to capture this strategic point to determine a new border between the two Koreas is the ultimate prize. Starring Shin Ha-kyun, Ko Soo, Lee Je-hoon, Ryu Seung-soo.
The Front Line, or Go-ji-jeon originally, is directed by South Korean filmmaker Hun Jang (of Rough Cut and Secret Reunion previously) from a screenplay written by Sang-yeon Park. This was already released in South Korea last summer, but Well Go USA is releasing The Front Line in US theaters starting January 13th, to go with their Best Foreign Language Oscar bid.

i know this probably isn't a big deal, but if its gonna be released in US theaters come january 13th (or the 20th as the trailer announced) then why is it not under "Release Dates" on the FS page?

why is it that every foreign language movies (or non-american movie) is just some variation of an already released american movie.

Kinda like every American movie is a remake or a sequel I guess.
