This week we have the opening of what started as a remake of Shin Sang-ok’s classic film Red Muffler. The movie went through several name changes but is now called R2B which is shorthand for Return to Base. It is directed by Kim Dong-won and stars the singer Rain (real name Jeong Ji-hoon) in the lead role alongside Yoo Joon-sang and Shin Se-kyeong.
We also have the Total Recall remake as well as Carnage (fr), Cold Fish (jp), Dragon Eyes (us), Step Up 4 (us), and Intercepter (ru). Usually, new movies in Korea open on a Thursday but about half of the films listed here opened a day earlier because of the holdiay.. and R2B opened two days ealier than usual.
