July 30, 2014 – "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", will make its North America debut in major market cinemas on August 15, 2014. The film follows the events of a legendary Korean naval battle, Myeong-Nyang, and the Korean Admiral Yi Sun-shin (Choi Min-sik) who leads only 12 battleships to victory against 330 Japanese ones.
A large scale production set with eight life-size ships made with authentic materials used in the actual battle was used in the filming of "The Admiral". Through deep research director Lee Han-Min strived to recreate the amazing events that took place in 1597.
Choi Min-sik, most known for his lead role in the cult hit "Old Boy", has made a name for himself within the international film community to be able to reinvent himself with every role. Now in "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", Choi finds himself as yet another intriguing character – a disgraced leader of a small naval fleet, up against all odds.
"The Admiral: Roaring Currents" is presented and distributed by CJ Entertainment and produced by Big Stone Pictures. The film will premiere in major market theaters across North America.
