D-WAR is an English-language monster movie that just opened in South Korean, earning an awesome $20.5-million in its first five days. The 2.95-million ticket sales fell just short of matching the 3.17-million record set by THE HOST last year.
Set in Los Angeles, the film’s story about ancient reptilian creatures who return in modern day required a $33-million budget to pay for the extensive special effects. Jason Behr, Amanda Brooks, Robert Forster, Aimee Garcia, Craig Robinson, and Chris Mulkey star. Retitled DRAGON WARS for the U.S., the film will open on September 14, courtesy of Freestyle Releasing.
