New Korean war epic Operation Chromite starring Liam Neeson (Taken, Schindler’s List) is poised to be the largest Korean summer blockbuster this year, telling the true story of the heroes whose lives were sacrificed in order to turn the tide of the Korean War.
Liam Neeson stars as General MacArthur, who led the attack against the North Koreans in the Battle of Incheon, forcing them to retreat out of Seoul.
The major attack would not have been successful if it weren’t for a group of South Korean Navy Special Forces, led by Captain Jang Hak-soo, and the KLO (Korean Liaison Office) unit. Before the battle, this team is tasked with a covert operation to successfully infiltrate the North Korean army command center. To do so they will need to go undercover, disguising themselves as a North Korean inspection unit. Time is not on their side as the attack will begin with or without the success. To complete their risky mission, the team must make incredible sacrifices to ensure the freedom of South Korea.
Operation Chromite is directed by John H. Lee (The Third Way of Love, Into the Fire). In addition to Liam Neeson, Operation Chromite also stars Lee Jung-Jae as South Korean Captain Jang Hak-soo (Assassination, New World), Lee Bum-soo as North Korean Commander Lim Gye-Jin (The Divine Move, IRIS: New Generation), and Jin Se-Yun as Han Chae-sun (Enemies In-Law and Doctor Stranger).
Operation Chromite will open in North American cinemas on August 12, 2016.
