Another Exciting Teaser for Korean Swords & Aliens Movie ‘Alienoid’
“For many years, aliens have kept their prisoners locked inside human bodies.” CJ Entertainment in Korea has debuted another new “teaser” trailer for an epic sci-fi movie titled Alienoid. We posted a trailer for this a few weeks ago, but this teaser has even better footage. During the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392), Taoists try to take a mysterious holy sword. Meanwhile in present day (in 2022), aliens appear on Earth. A time door soon connects the late Goryeo period and the present day. The two parties cross paths when a time-traveling portal opens, causing chaos and confusion. The science fiction action fantasy features a cast including Ryu Jun-yeol as a master swordsman, Kim Tae-ri as “a woman who shoots thunder”, Kim Woo-bin, So Ji-seob, Yum Jung-ah, Kim Eui-eung, Lee Ha-nee, and Jo Woo-jin. It was shot all together but will be released in two sequential parts, instead of one big movie, which means there’s going to be a lot going on in this. I think this looks crazy entertaining! I’m sold! Mixing sci-fi and ancient worlds looks like so much fun.
Here’s the newest international teaser for Choi Dong-hoon’s Alienoid, direct from CJ’s YouTube:
