Disaster Movie World

Oh my God, we're all gonna die!

Trailer: Haeundae

In the mood for a disaster flick not made in Hollywood? Check out the trailer for Haeundae, a South Korean contribution to the genre, billed as the nation’s first big budget disaster movie. Yay!

According to Beyond Hollywood, the story – in wonderfully generic disaster movie fashion – centers around a lone scientist trying to convince authorities that a super tsunami is headed for the famous Haeundae beach.  Human interest is added through a subplot about a former fisherman who lost a colleague in a tsunami some years ago and now runs a sushi shop.

Visual effects are produced by American company Polygon Entertainment, run by Hans Uhlig who oversaw CG on The Day After Tomorrow.

If you’re interested, SciFi Japan has a longer article on Haeundae. The movie is supposed to open in South Korea this month.
