The Huntresses gets trailerized!


A lot of news happened while we were on break. One thing was The Huntresses (조선미녀 삼총사 – Joseonminyeo Samchongsa, which translates to The Joseon Beautiful Three Musketeers) picked up a trailer that popped up on AsianWiki, which was then reblogged on every site that gets it’s news from AsianWiki (or from sites that copy news from sites that get news from AsianWiki. But take it from Tars, it’s much better to get the water directly from the source!) As we’ve been covering this flick since filming began, it’s only fair that the trailer get a view here as well!

Set in the Joseon Period, three beautiful musketeers fight against a powerful group who tries to overturn the royal family and gain absolute power. The leader of the Beautiful Three Musketeers is Jin-Ok (Ha Ji-Won), a smart and righteous woman. Hong-Dan (Kang Ye-Won) is the only married woman among the three women. Ga-Bi (Son Ga-In from Brown Eyed Girls) is the youngest among the musketeers and excels at fighting.

More news and links and fun for the whole family!

**Anchorman 2 will drop in theaters December 20, 2013. I hope someone is there to catch it! Adam McKay directs and Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate return.

**The Raid 2 (aka Berandal) is filming soon and has some new cast members: Julie Estelle as Hammer Girl, Alex Abbad, Marsha Timothy, Mathias Muchus, Tio Pakusadewu, and noted silat master Cecep Arif Rahman.

**Summit Entertainment has picked up Revoc, a pitch from Olaf de Fleur that is a “post-alien invasion thriller.” We’ll keep an eye open to see whatever the heck that is.

**The YA scifi novel Unwind has been optioned for a flick by Constantin Film. Written by Neal Shusterman, it is yet another dystopian future book that takes place after an American civil war about abortion, where kids 13-17 can be harvested for organs if their parents want. The synopsis is filled with all sorts of book specific terms and I would probably never read it, but The Hunger Games made a lot of money, so prepare for dozens of dystopian futures!

**Hugh Jackman is officially in X-Men: Days of Future Past

**Angeilina Jolie will direct Unbroken, a World War II POW flick about Louis Zamperini, who was an Olympic athlete before becoming a pilot and then a POW in Japan. It’s based on the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand.

The Huntresses – upcoming Korean Female Three Muskateers flick!

The Huntresses
An action comedy filming now in Korea is The Huntresses (조선미녀 삼총사 – Joseonminyeo Samchongsa, which translates to The Joseon Beautiful Three Musketeers) It is a period piece and as you can see from the costume concept art above will have a stylized look.

Set in the Joseon Period, three beautiful musketeers fight against a powerful group who tries to overturn the royal family and gain absolute power. The leader of the Beautiful Three Musketeers is Jin-Ok (Ha Ji-Won), a smart and righteous woman. Hong-Dan (Kang Ye-Won) is the only married woman among the three women. Ga-Bi (Son Ga-In from Brown Eyed Girls) is the youngest among the musketeers and excels at fighting.

Ha Ji-Won’s Jin-Ok builds all sorts of unique weapons and is a master of disguise. Ga-In’s fight before talk character uses those weapons, including a yo-yo that has appeared in some publicity art. Oddly enough, that’s caused some people to freak out. Didn’t they see that episode of The Simpsons with the yo-yos? Kang Ye-Won’s married character is a throwing knife expert who can’t do housework and is the funny one. They are mentored by a character played by Go Chang-Suk, who is described as more comic relief. Their main rival will be played by heartthrob Joo Sang-Wook as Sa Hyun, a warrior with superb martial art skills.

Park Je-Hyun is directing, and filming has just started, thus the lack of real images at this time beyond a social media photo below.

Samchongsa is also what Charlie’s Angels was called in Korea, so you can probably figure out the vibe they are going for from that.
