Just in time for the new year, Netflix unveiled a new official trailer for the upcoming six-part series, Kingdom. The show is set to premiere on January 25 and despite all comparisons to Kim Sung-hoon’s Rampant, should likely serve something a little extra, if not different, what with a second season in the works for its narrative.
Netflix may not hastily be hatching its eggs when it comes to their upcoming Asian content, but that hasn’t impeded them from counting. With Kingdom, they’re especially including the new historical period zombie hybrid which they’ve already considered groundbreaking enough to garner a second season as of July as they waited out even airing the first.
200 Pounds Beauty and Mr. Go helmer Kim Yong-Hwa’s sweeping new fantasy adventure, Along With The Gods, aims to cover a lot of ground through next year. Its inspiration from a popular webcomic hopes to be the seed that sprouts a two-part epic that is now being confirmed for an official North American release date on December 22 from Well Go USA two days after its Korean bow.
Kim’s ambitious blockbuster comes from the online pages of Ju Ho-min’s webcomic and was produced with a budget totaling in the vicinity $35.5 million dollars (KRW 40 billion), and made quite the noise last week among the film fest crowd in Busan. The film opens in South Korea on December 20 with its sequel being dated for next summer.
