Oh, “D-War”. How long have I heard of ye? Everytime I mention anything to do with Hyung-rae Shim’s “D-War” (the “D” stands for “Dragon”, in case you were wondering, cause there are, like, dragons in this movie and whatnot), I feel like I’m talking about some ancient myth that I have only heard about myself, but have never seen. Such is “D-War”, a big-budget creature movie (supposedly the most expensive in Korean film history) that has been in production since the dawn of time, and will finally, FINALLY, see the light of day come September 14th, 2007. According to various sources, including here, “D-War” will be coming to a theater near you. I’m gonna have to take a “we’ll see when we see it” attitude to that one, sorry.
Based on the Korean legend, unknown creatures will return and devastate the planet. Reporter Ethan Kendrick is called in to investigate the matter, and he arrives at the conclusion that a girl stricken with a mysterious illness named Sarah is suppose to help him. The Imoogi makes its way to Los Angeles, wreaking havoc and destruction. With the entire city under arms, will Ethan and Sarah make it in time to save the people of Los Angeles?
Via HorrorMovies.ca, here are four new posters for “D-War”. They look like character posters, but since I don’t think anyone is going to bother learning the names of the creatures in the movie, does it matter? Still looks pretty cool, though.
