For those of you who follow the Varied Celluloid facebook, this is a bit of a followup! Recently, it was announced that Shout! Factory had come to an agreement with the South Korean production company CJ Entertainment. A big name within the South Korean market, this means that we will see more quality South Korean releases hitting the North American marketplace. This is always a good thing, as far as I am concerned! First up on the list for Shout! Factory is Sector 7
, a science fiction film from 2011. The release will be on both standard DVD as well as Bluray 3D, which will feature the film in both high definition 3D as well as 2D. Directed by Kim Ji-Hoon and starring Ha Ji-Won (Sex is Zero
), this certainly looks like it will be a promising title. To be honest, I would probably watch anything that starred Ha Ji-Won. More on that in a second, but first, here is the ploy synopsis as provided by Shout! Factory.
Starring popular international female action star Ha Ji-Won and directed by Kim Ji-Hoon, SECTOR 7 delivers blockbuster home entertainment, boasting fierce action, daring stunts and spectacular CG and 3D technology. Hae-jun (Ha Ji-Won) is working as a marine equipment manager on an old oil prospecting platform stationed at Sector 7, the mining area in the vast open sea located off the southern tip of Korea’s Jeju Island. One day, a new recruit sinks to the bottom of the sea. Evidence suggests that it was not an accident, and other crew members begin to turn up dead. The few survivors soon discover an underwater creature roaming the rig. The viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on crew members to survive. As Hae-jun and her remaining crew lose all communications to the outside world, a frantic fight for their lives begins.
Did I mention that Ha Ji-Won is insanely hot? Oh, I didn’t? Well, she is.
