Production Company of Sci-fi Movie Space Sweepers with Song Joong Ki and Kim Tae Ri Mulling Different Release Options Including Netflix

Third time may not be the charm for sci-fi Korean movie Space Sweepers (Spaceship Victory). The movie has been delayed twice now due to COVID-19 shut downs and limitations at movie theaters, first in March and then later again in August. Some Korean movies have premiered and within the context of limited seating still managed to do well, but this was a big budget tent pole type of movie and with so much special effects the budget was quite large and would need significant ticket sales to recoup and even make money. But with COVID-19 end nowhere in sight, the production team revealed this week that it was exploring a multitude of premiere options including airing it on Netflix. Don’t knock Netflix, so many incredibly well made movies have premiered exclusively on the streaming platform but the licensing sales price to Netflix would have to be high for Space Sweepers to make that jump. I could see a combination release structure which could set the stage for other movies in the near term.
