“This blade can wake up prisoners, and it can take you back in time.” It looks like a mighty blade! Korea’s CJ Entertainment has revealed another official trailer for the epic sci-fi Alienoid, which is finally slated for a US release. Well Go USA will release this one in US theaters at the end of August. We’ve released two other trailers for this movie before, but there’s always more footage to see. During the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392), Taoists attempt to take a mysterious sacred sword. Meanwhile, nowadays (in 2022), aliens are appearing on Earth. A time gate soon connects the end of the Goryeo period and the current era. The two parties cross paths when a time travel portal opens, causing chaos and confusion. The sci-fi action fantasy features a cast including Ryu Jun-yeol as a master swordsman, Kim Tae-ri as “a woman who hurls thunder”, Kim Woo Bin, So Ji-seob, Yum Jung-ah, Kim Eui-eung, Lee Ha-neeand Jo Woo-jin. I can’t say if this is still being released in two parts in the US, but for now they’re just promoting it as Alienoid film. Curious to watch and find out how these two scenarios are mixed together and if this movie is any good.
Here’s the main official trailer (+ poster) for Choi Dong-hoon Alienoidstraight from CJ Youtube:

One day, a spaceship appears in the skies of Seoul, and police detective Moon (So Ji-sub, “Moon”) witnesses a strange sight… Those who pursue alien prisoners locked in human bodies in the air. 2022, and the wizards who pursue the legendary Divine Blade in the year 1391… When the door of time opens, everything becomes entangled!
