SEOUL, November 20, 2020 – Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, has confirmed the exclusive global release of a new Korean sci-fi thriller film Space Sweepers, starring Song Joong-ki, Kim Tae-ri, Jin Sun-kyu and Yoo Hai-jin.
Space Sweepers, directed by Jo Sung-hee (A Werewolf Boy, Phantom Detective) and produced by Bidangil Pictures, depicts in vivid detail the crew of a cosmic waste management spacecraft who discover a humanlike robot, named Dorothy.
Set in 2092, Earth has become a bleak planet which will soon be uninhabitable. Spaceship Victory is one of the many that live off salvaging space debris. Crewed with a genius space pilot Tae-ho, a mysterious ex-space pirate Captain Jang, an ex-con spaceship engineer Tiger Park, and a reprogrammed military robot Bubs, Spaceship Victory surpasses all other space sweepers. After successfully snatching a crashed space shuttle in the latest debris chase, Victory’s crew find a 7-year-old girl inside. They realize that she’s the humanlike robot wanted by UTS Space Guards, and decide to demand ransom in exchange.
Song Joong-ki (Descendants of the Sun, A Werewolf Boy) plays Tae-ho, the pilot who undertakes any profitable venture. Kim Tae-ri (Mr. Sunshine, The Handmaiden) takes on the role of Captain Jang, while Jin Sun-kyu (Kingdom, Extreme Job) and Yoo Hai-jin (Confidential Assignment, A Taxi Driver) plays Tiger Park and Bubs, respectively.
The excitement-packed outer space sci-fi blockbuster Space Sweepers will premiere worldwide, only on Netflix.
