Soar into the Sun (2012) Movie PosterStop whatever it is you’re doing right now and listen up: A new image from director Kim Dong-Won’s aerial action flick “Soar into the Sun” has been released, and it might just change your life. Well, not really, but it does feature “Ninja Assassin” star Rain wearing snazzy sunglasses while standing in front of a badass fighter jet. Some will squeal, others will ask themselves, “What in the hell is a Rain?” If you have to ask, then I’m afraid you don’t need to know, my friend. Sorry.

Here’s a needlessly lengthy synopsis for you to skim:

A South Korean Elite Black Eagles Air Force pilot Tae-hun finds himself transferred to a combat flying unit after a cocky, unplanned, and dangerous air show demonstration. On the first day of his transfer to F15K, he meets Cheol-hui, the unit’s own top gun. Tae-hun is free-spirited, whereas Cheol-hui plays by the rules, and the two come into conflict almost immediately. However, Tae-hun quickly befriends his other colleagues: Dae-seo, Yu-jin, and Seok-hyeon. He also falls in love with Se-yeong, who is in charge of maintenance. Tae-hun continues his free-spirited ways and his antics get suspended from duty. Then one day, reconnaissance mission turns into an unexpected incident, ending in Dae-seo’s untimely death and Seok-hyeon’s disappearance. Initially blaming Cheol-hui for the tragedy, he and Tae-hun eventually come to an emotional understanding. Now the F15K make preparations to stop a war and rescue their missing comrade.

Kim Dong-Won’s slick remake of the 1964 flick “Red Scarf” is scheduled for release in South Korea this August. The (potentially) mind-blowing imagery promised in the misleading opening paragraph resides below. A trailer should be joining us shortly.

    Apparently it was renamed R2B: Return to Base.

    … terrible name.
