About Battle for Incheon: Operation Chromite …
In this suspenseful, action-packed, military adventure based on death-defying, real-life events, U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur (Liam Neeson, the Taken trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, Star Wars: Episode I, Batman Begins, Schindler’s List) is appointed head of the United Nations Command at the height of the Korean War.
As the conflict’s darkest days drag on and beleaguered U.S. and South Korean forces become disheartened, MacArthur dispatches eight elite, South Korean military men on a suicide mission code-named Operation Chromite, a covert operation to infiltrate North Korean headquarters far behind enemy lines.
Led by Navy Lieutenant Jang Hak-soo (Lee Jung-jae, Assassination, New World, The Thieves, The Housemaid), the courageous “X-Ray” intelligence unit finds themselves pitted against not only ruthless North Korean commander Lim Gye-jin (Lee Bum-soo, The Divine Move, IRIS: New Generation, The City of Violence) and his men, but the Russian and Chinese troops supporting them.
Now they must stay alive long enough to achieve the impossible … Sabotage the North to clear the way for the naval incursion which finally turns the tide—MacArthur’s daring, surprise attack by sea, the decisive, 1950 Invasion of Incheon by 75,000 U.N. troops and 261 warships.
Also starring Jin Se-Yun as Han Chae-sun (Enemies In-Law, Doctor Stranger), Battle for Incheon: Operation Chromite is directed by John H. Lee (The Third Way of Love, The Last Stand, Into the Fire, Sayonara Itsuka, A Moment to Remember) and produced by Chung Tae-Won (the upcoming Mulgae, The Triangle, 71: Into the Fire, IRIS).
