Watch: Korean Thriller The Tower Trailer

2 January 2013 11:14 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

“Survive at any cost.” Now here’s some over-the-top fun from South Korea to begin the new year with. This one called The Tower, a South Korean film directed by Kim Ji-hoon (Mokpo the Harbor, May 18, Sector 7), another new adrenalin-overflowing fire disaster thriller, and starting somewhat Die Hard-ish. Take a look!

A Christmas Eve party at a luxury residential high-rise building takes a horrific turn when a fire breaks out. Korean director Kim Ji-hoon was inspired by the 1974 Hollywood film The Towering Inferno, and his personal experience seeing the 63 Building in Seoul for the first time as a middle school student and imagining how it would feel to be trapped inside. The film stars Sol Kyung-gu, Kim Sang-kyung and Son Ye-jin. This was made on a budget of 10 million won (a bit less than $9.500). It was just released on Christmas Day in Korea, earning the second biggest opening day record in Korean history. »
