Cha Seung Won, Kim Sung Kyun, and Kwang Soo Team Up for Disaster Comedy Film Sinkhole Premiering August 11th

South Korea has really cemented the genre of the disaster comedy which sounds like mutually exclusive but if the disaster part has no deaths and just a lot of running around then the comedy portion works. I still remember how much fun movies like Exit are and the upcoming Sinkhole fits the exact same profile – quirky South Korean every man and woman in a wholly improbable situation need to hard scrabble a way to survive and escape. Starring Cha Seung Won, Kim Sung Kyun, Kwang Soo, and rising young actress Kim Hye Jun, there is so much talent in the cast and the director has plenty of experience with this type of flick having directed Sector 7 and The Tower. I can’t imagine an entire movie about a bunch of people stuck in a residential building that’s fallen into a giant sinkhole and they need to escape but I’m sure the escape part will be less important than the bantering and silly antics.
