Invincible trailer and official poster
Upcoming gangster-action film Invincible [무적자], starring Song Seung-heon, Joo Jin-mo, Kim Kang-woo, and Jo Han-seon, has released its official poster and trailer. It looks cheesy, epic, and therefore awesome.
The remake of 1986’s A Better Tomorrow (starring Chow Yun-fat) can’t possibly top the original, in my opinion. That film is the highlight of one of the most productive decades in Hong Kong cinema. It seems that what they’re going for here is a slick, contemporary version of the story, which they can hopefully pull off by trying to be different from the original, rather than re-do Chow Yun-fat. Because that would be an exercise in futility.
The tale is one we’re all familiar with, even if you haven’t seen the original film: brotherhood, loyalty, Fate entangling the four men in dramatic ways. This latest poster is a little less cheese-tastic than the character stills, so that’s a plus.
The trailer below looks rockin’. Joo Jin-mo will be the anchor, Song Seung-heon will strain to emote, and I have a feeling that Jo Han-seon is going to steal the show.
Invincible will be in theaters for the Chuseok holiday in September.
