Netflix's Latest Movie 'Space Sweepers' Tops Charts Worldwide
Proving a promising future for Korean sci-fi blockbuster films.
Starring Song Joongki and Kim Taeri, Space Sweepers illustrates a dystopian world set in 2092. With the Earth becoming an inhabitable place, a large corporation dubbed UTS builds a new home on Mars for select individuals only. Struggling to make money by cleaning up floating debris in space, the Victory Ship’s crew comes across Dorothy, a child robot known to be a highly dangerous weapon.
Originally slated to premiere at cinemas, Space Sweepers released on Netflix instead due to coronavirus-related restrictions. The movie debuted at No. 1 in at least 16 countries including France, Malaysia, Croatia, Korea and the Philippines. The record proves a promising future for the Korean film industry’s venture in sci-fi blockbusters.
