Watch: Korean Sci-Fi Anthology 'The Doomsday Book' Teaser Trailer
"The End of the Earth is Coming to You!" There's a Korean sci-fi horror anthology called The Doomsday Book, that has been in the works for quite a while, which is finally being completed. SlashFilm found the first teaser trailer and it's a must-watch if you love anything involving meteors hitting Earth, deadly viruses that turn people into crazed zombies, futuristic robot monks with mysterious looks or just Korean horror. The film has three segments by directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel). This looks quite crazy, very intriguing at least, I definitely want to see it that's for sure. Take a look!
Here's the first teaser trailer for Kim Jee-woon & Yim Pil-sung's The Doomsday Book, via YouTube:
Two 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 Earth. From the very Earth you live on.
This project originally had three directors, as recounted by Twitch, but only moved on with just Jee-woon and Pil-sung. Each one directed a segment, then collaborated together to finish the third. SlashFilm has more info on each story, stating Kim's is "about a robot that develops its own consciousness" as part of an anthology about the end of the world. This is due to be released in Korea soon, but has no US distributor yet.
