Liam Neeson in First Trailer for Korean War Film 'Operation Chromite'
"This is the riskiest military operation that I've ever encountered! Why the fixation on Inchon?" An official Korean trailer has debuted for the film Operation Chromite, an epic action thriller about the Korean War, specifically the Battle of Inchon. The film stars Liam Neeson as General Douglas MacArthur, the US military General who lead the campaign to land in the city of Inchon and drive the invading North Korean forces out of South Korea. There is some epic action in this involving giant battleships as well as explosions on the streets, plus hand-to-hand battles and more. The full cast includes Lee Jung-jae, Jin Se-yun and Lee Beom-su. The Koreans love making epic movies, but I'm not sure if this will be any good. Take a look.
Here's the first international trailer (+ poster) for John H. Lee's Operation Chromite, found on YouTube:
"Operation Chromite" is the codename for the Battle of Incheon that took place on September 15, 1950, shortly after the Korean War broke out on June 25 in 1950. It was a surprise attack in which U.N. forces landed in the South Korean harbor city to drive out the North Koreans, and is recognized as a turning point for U.N.-backed South Korea against the communist North. Operation Chromite will focus on eight Korean war heroes. Operation Chromite is directed by Korean filmmaker John H. Lee, of A Moment to Remember, Sayonara Itsuka, 71: Into the Fire previously. The screenplay is by Man-Hee Lee, John H. Lee and Sean Dulake. The film opens in Korea this July, and in select US theaters on August 12th this summer.
