Asura: The City of Madness Trailer

"You have eyes that connect be trusted." "You don't accept my sincerity." CJ Entertainment has debuted a trailer for a Korean action noir thriller titled Asura: The City of Madness, which is opening in theaters this month in the US after premiering at TIFF. The film is about a shady cop who finds himself in over his head when he gets caught between Internal Affairs and the city's corrupt mayor. Starring Jung Woo-sung (The Good, the Bad, the Weird), Hwang Jung-min (Ode to My Father), Ju Ji-hoon, Kwak Do-won and Jung Man-sik. The action ramps up in the second half of this trailer, and it looks damn good. Between this film and The Age of Shadows, there's a number of impressive Korean films hitting theaters this month and that look like they're worth watching. This film in particular seems brutal and twisted, and I want to see it.

Here's the official US trailer for Kim Sung-soo's Asura: The City of Madness, direct from CJ's YouTube:

Detective Han (Jung Woo-sung), who for years has been secretly doing dirty work for the corrupt mayor Park Sungbae (Hwang Jung-min), is now pressured by a ruthless prosecutor Kim Cha-in (Kwak Do-won) to cooperate in an investigation against the mayor. Feeling trapped, Han persuades his young partner Sunmo (Ju Ji-hoon) to take over his work for the mayor, but things start to get tangled in unpredictable ways. As things are getting worse, only the most evil survives in this dog-eat-dog world. Asura: The City of Madness is directed by Korean filmmaker Kim Sung-soo, of the films City of the Rising Sun, Musa: The Warrior, Please Teach Me English and Flu previously. This just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. CJ Entertainment will open Asura: The City of Madness in select theaters starting October 14th this month.
