First Trailer: Kim Je-woon’s “Age of Shadows”

South Korean director Kim Jee-woon produced a trilogy of films in his own country, most notably the stunning “I Saw The Devil,” before trying to go Hollywood with the failed “The Last Stand”.

It has been a few years since that film and he’s now finally taking another shot at a feature, this time he’s gone back home and has done a late 1920s set tale about Korean resistance fighters squaring off against Japanese police as they try to halt the independence movement.

Song Kang-ho and Gong Yoo star in the story about a cat-and-mouse game that unfolds between the fighters, trying to bring in explosives from Shanghai to destroy Japanese facilities in Seoul, and the Japanese agents trying to stop them. The film opens in South Korea in September, check out the new trailer below.
