Doomsday Book 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.

Love the colors.  I don't know why.

I noticed, with this sort of topic, this warm color scheme seems to me popular.  Anyone have any idea why?  No complaints, but just curious why this is what is felt.

Dig it.

Honestly, kind of reminds me of Movie: The Movie.  Society of humans with super-intelligent robots warding off asteroids/meteors while dealing with some weird pandemic...quite a bit of content...

If this is a parody about end of world I'll see it ,if not...well i,robot rip off design failed me from the start.

I wish the world would end already, so people couldn't get another movie approved showing how it will end.

Virus + giant meteorite + sentient robot.  Hmmm... Not sure that's enough. Shouldn't we add some vampires and/or invading aliens to the mix? Pass.

@myself: Damn. READ first, comment later. It's an anthology - duh. And I can't even erase my stupid comment.Apologies to the other readers 🙁 In any case, only the sentient robot segment looks interesting - not rehashed stuff.

I got to see this film and it is pure genius. It is more three stories done as Chapters. I looked at it like three shorts. It is going down as one of my favorite Korean or foreign made Science Fiction mix horror movies of all time. The only thing ripped off in this movie are themes. Like Zombies.... And you can't really complain about that. Sure the Robot looks like Robots we have seen before. But this is a unique film I will buy and treasure. Why is it not on IMDB?

So I just read financing fell apart and it had a very limited release. That is really sad. This teaser is very misleading. It was done as three short independent stories. So why they mixed them together in this teaser as one, I have no idea. It is not unnecessary. With all the crap being put out today. It is really to bad most people will never see this film. If you get a chance. DO IT!
