Releasing in South Korea on January 29, 2014 is the long-awaited Joseon period sageuk action adventure, The Huntresses. And this week, the film is back with a brand new character trailer which delivers more of what filmgoers can expect, including its fair of high-flying swordplay, quirky dialogue, silly comedy and…bellydancing! The new release date and trailer come just as a new poster and trailer were also unveiled last year, breathing a sign of life back into the film since its delay last year, protracted lengthy post-production process.
A new slate of posters and a trailer have gone viral this month for Wellmade STARM’s upcoming Joseon Period fantasy femme fatale action comedy, The Huntresses. Following a production that lasted from August to December of 2012, the film was originally promised a theatrical South Korean release earlier this summer with teasers, stills and trailers aired online, and a slew of colorful character posters promoting the film before post-production issues interfered. Fortunately the film now has a Korean theatrical release set for this January, in addition to some new promotional poster art to get things rolling, which you can check out below.
The film is described as a cross between Charlie’s Angels and The Three Musketeers with an Asian period twist, with characters the director described as styled to fit traits emulated by action cinema icons Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Filming lasted three months in the city of Cheongju-si, South Korea, beginning in August and wrapping filming in December of last year. You can view some behind the scenes photos by clicking HERE.
