Garnering a 4-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival.
The latest Korean flick looking to dominate worldwide box offices — after last year’s hit Train to Busan — arrives as an action-packed revenge story titled The Villainess. Having already made its premiere at the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival, the film starring actress Kim Ok Bin received a four-minute standing ovation.
The Villainess tells the story of a ruthless female assassin named Sook Hwe (Kim Ok Bin) who from an early age has been taught to kill. After becoming a sleeper agent for South Korea’s Intelligence Agency, two men from her past show up, bringing out her darkest secrets. The Villainess is slated to hit stateside on August 25.
