You remember Rain, don’t you? He’s the Korean singing and acting sensation who crossed over into American cinema with roles in the Wachowski Brothers’ big screen Speed Racer (2008) and the bloody good guilty pleasure Ninja Assassin (2009). Well, he’s back in his native country and ready to hop into the cockpit of a sleek fighter jet for the summer blockbuster Soar Into the Sun.
A teaser trailer is online here. The production values look sky high – no pun intended – and the teaser promises plenty of intense aerial action, even if it doesn’t offer much hint of a plot.
If that’s whet your appetite, head on over here for the poster and a glimpse of Rain in his pilot gear. Soar Into the Sun arrives in Korean theaters this August 2012.
Update: In a move that seems designed only to confuse audiences, the film has alternately been promoted as Soar Into the Sun (see: the new poster) and Return to Base. But it’s looking likely that the official title is Return to Base, seeing as how that’s the name stamped all over the latest trailer. You’ll find plenty of new stills at that link as well.
BREAKING NEWS: A new trailer is online with English subs. Hooray!
