"Space Sweepers," a Korean space opera film starring Song Joong-ki and Kim Tae-ri, offered a sneak peek on Thursday. Distributor Merry Christmas floated a trailer for the movie, which is dubbed the first Korean sci-fi flick set in space.
The film, set in 2092, follows the crew of a space junk sweeper named "The Victory." As they look for lucrative space debris, they discover the humanoid "Dorothy" ― a weapon of mass destruction ― and start a "risky deal."
Song plays the shuttle's pilot Taeho. Kim appears as the crew's young and confident leader. Acclaimed actors Jin Sun-kyu and Yoo Hai-jin also feature in the much-anticipated movie.
Filmmaker Jo Sung-hee, who previously teamed up with Song for the fantasy romance movie "A Werewolf Boy" (2012), directed "Space Sweepers." The flick will hit local theaters this summer, but the exact premiere date has not been confirmed.
