R2B: Return to Base will be opening with English subtitles at select North American theaters on August 24th
Rain and Shin Se Kyung‘s latest film ‘R2B: Return to Base‘ will be making its way into select North American theaters on Friday, August 24th.
‘R2B: Return to Base’ is an aerial action film. This is the remake of director Shin Sang-ok’s ‘The Red Muffler’ (1964). This movie is the soldiers’ friendship and lives through one guy, who becomes true soldier after joining the Air Force.
Directed by Kim Dong Won, ‘R2B: Return to Base’ features a star-studded cast including Rain (‘Fugitive Plan B‘, ‘Ninja Assassin‘), Shin Se Kyung (‘Fashion King‘, ‘Blue Salt‘), Yoo Jun Sang (‘You Who Rolled in Unexpectedly‘, ‘Moss‘), Kim Sung Soo (‘I Like it Hot‘), Lee Hana (‘Fair Love‘, ‘Triple‘), and Lee Jong Suk (‘As One‘, ‘High Kick 3‘).
A South Korean Elite Black Eagles Air Force pilot Tae-hun (Rain) finds himself transferred to a combat flying unit after a cocky, unplanned, and dangerous air show demonstration. On the first day of his transfer to F15K, he meets Cheol-hui (Yoo Jun Sang), the unit’s own top gun. Tae-hun is free-spirited, whereas Cheol-hui plays by the rules, and the two come into conflict almost immediately. However, Tae-hun quickly befriends his other colleagues: Dae-seo, Yu-jin, and Seok-hyeon. He also falls in love with Se-yeong (Shin Se Kyung), who is in charge of maintenance. Tae-hun continues his free-spirited ways and his antics get the entire unit suspended from duty. The world outside the base makes its presence known when a North Korean MIG fighter is discovered heading toward the South. Tae-hun and the rest of the squad are put back on active duty, and a reconnaissance mission turns into an all out fight, ending in Dae-seo’s untimely death and Seok-hyeon’s disappearance. Eventually Cheol-hui and Tae-hun come to an emotional understanding and the F15K makes preparations to stop a war and rescue their missing comrade.
