Netflix brings South Korean film ‘Pandora’ to global audiences
MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix and South Korean film production and distribution company Next Entertainment World have announced an international licensing agreement for ‘Pandora’, the nuclear disaster film from CAC Entertainment by screenwriter turned director Park Jung-Woo known for the science fiction horror film ‘Deranged’.
In ‘Pandora’, disaster strikes a nuclear power plant in a small, quiet town when an earthquake unexpectedly hits. Kim Nam-gil plays Jae-hyuk, a man who risks his life to save his family and country from the impending atomic explosion. The film also stars Kim Young-ae, Jung Jin-young and Kim Dae-myeong.
‘Pandora’ will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix to its members in 190 countries, excluding South Korea, next year. In South Korea, the film will be available to stream after its theatrical release.
“We are excited to work with Next Entertainment World to bring such high-quality Korean titles like Pandora to our members worldwide. Netflix is committed to bringing the best of global entertainment to the world and in an era where the Internet knows no bounds, this is another step towards delivering great stories to fans no matter where they live,” said Netflix VP content acquisition Rob Roy.
Next Entertainment World CEO Kim Woo-taek said, “We are delighted to partner with Netflix, a world-class content distributor, to be able to present ‘Pandora’ to global audiences in over 190 countries. Following the recent success of Train to Busan in Asia, we hope the ‘nuclear’ themed Pandora can win much love from the audiences worldwide.”
