Official Trailer for Korean Martial Arts Film 'Memories of the Sword'
"The next time we meet, one of us must die." Well Go USA has unveiled an official US trailer for the Korean martial arts film Memories of the Sword, starring Byung-hun Lee (seen in Terminator: Genisys) and Jeon Do-yeon (seen in The Housemaid) and Kim Go-eun (seen in Monster). The story seems to follow a revenge plot involving a young girl who trains to take on one of the most powerful men and warriors of the Goryo Dynasty. It does look like there are a few epic fight scenes in this, with some stunning slow motion shots. But is it anything more than just a revenge story with some martial arts action? Will anyone find out?
Here's the official US trailer for Park Heung-sik's Memories of the Sword, in high def from Apple:
As the greed and excess of a corrupt Monarchy threatens to destroy the once-glorious Goryeo Dynasty, three legendary warriors lead a revolt to overthrow the empire and save its people. But when deceit and betrayal costs the life of a master swordsman, a plot for justice and revenge is set into motion, raging for decades between the two survivors. From the director of Children of Heaven and starring Byung-hun Lee (The Good, The Bad & The Weird, Terminator: Genisys), Memories of the Sword is a lavish epic that blends tragic historical drama with thrilling swordplay and martial arts. The film is directed by Park Heung-sik (My Mother the Mermaid, Sorry, Thanks, Children of Heaven), from a screenplay by Park Heung-sik and Choi Ah-reum. Well Go USA will release Memories of the Sword in US theaters starting August 28th. Anyone?
