South Korean Gangster Flick NEW WORLD Getting UK Release Watch Trailer

Eureka Entertainment is to release New World, a slick edge-of-your-seat thriller, as part of its new Montage  Pictures, range in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 15 January 2018.

After receiving much acclaim for his screenplays for both Kim Jee-woon’s I Saw the Devil and Ryoo Seung-wan’s The Unjust, Park Hoon-jung made the transition to directing and with New World, established himself as one of South Korea’s finest directors.

We've been waiting for this for over 3 years after it's UK premiere at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival. Originally mean't to be released in 2015 now we're 2 months away for the release, check out the UK Trailer!

When the chairman of South Korea’s largest crime syndicate is killed in mysterious circumstances, a complex and violent struggle for power takes place between the three most powerful figures in the Korean underworld. Meanwhile, the police, led by section chief Kang (Choi Min-sik, Oldboy), have established operation “New World”, in an attempt to weaken the syndicate even further. However, Kang’s inside man, Ja-sung (played by The Housemaid‘s Lee Jung-jae), is nearing breaking point after eight years working undercover.

Highly praised upon release as one of the finest gangster films for many years, New World is a slick, edge-of-your seat thriller, and is not to be missed.

New World is one of the best crime thrillers to be released not just in South Korean but Asian cinema and Christmas has come early! You can buy your copy on Blu-ray 15th January 2018.
