Watch: New US Trailer for Battle of Inchon Film 'Operation Chromite'
"I am Douglas MacArthur – I win wars." CJ Entertainment has debuted an official US trailer for the epic Korean war film Operation Chromite, telling the story of the Battle of Inchon during the Korean War in the 1950s. Liam Neeson stars as 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. The full cast includes Lee Jung-jae, Jin Se-yun and Lee Beom-su. We featured a trailer for this earlier in the month, but it was a Korean trailer and showed a bit too much of the big battle scenes. This trailer is edited together much better and actually makes me want to see this film, even if there is only a tiny amount of Neeson in it.
Here's the new official US trailer (+ poster) for John H. Lee's Operation Chromite, direct from 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.
