Streaming Sleepers: Stream ALIENOID: PART ONE Ahead Of The Upcoming Sequel!
With the fair certainty of the second part set to arrive sometime this year, it’s worth making note that director Choi Dong-hoon’s fantasy time-travel sci-fi adventure, Alienoid: Part 1, is now streaming on Prime Video in the U.S. The film stars Kim Tae-ri, Ryu Jun-yeol, Kim Woo-bin, and Choi Yoo-ri in the story that spans two time periods in which robot bounty hunters caring for a Joseon orphan in present-day Korea, and a fledgling Joseon-era Taoist wizard eyeing a mysterious gun-toting woman in search of a “divine blade,” meet head-on as an alien invasion looms.
You’re welcome to check out my review here for a few more unspoilery details on the story and my analysis. It didn’t do well at the local box office but did pretty well for itself on the streaming charts, so there’s hope yet that Alienoid: Part 2 will become a reality, and I look forward to chatting it up once CJ Entertainment sets the teaser loose on the masses. For now, if you live in the U.S., you can rent Alienoid: Part 1 on Apple TV+, or Prime, where you can also stream it. Enjoy!
