Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is just about ready to release the Korean thriller that broke all the box office records in its homeland. Shiri will be coming this April.
A phantom sniper methodically assassinates key figures in a South Korean intelligence investigation. Special agent Ryu and his partner Lee suspect North Korea’s most lethal female operative Hee. When a security breach prompts the theft of high-tech liquid explosive CTX from South Korean authorities, Ryu and Lee are certain there’s a mole within their ranks.
The film will be given an anamorphic widescreen transfer and a new Dolby Digital 5.1 English soundtrack as well as its original Dolby Surround Korean audio. A documentary: The Making of “Shiri”, the music video When I Dream and theatrical trailers will be included.
“Shiri” will be available on April 9th and carry a suggested retail price of $24.95.
