This is a trailer for the Korean action film The Villainess, which will premiered out of competition at Cannes. It was directed by Jung Byung-gil (Confession of Murder), and stars Kim Ok-bin (Thirst), Shin Ha-kyun (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), Sung Joon, and Kim Seo-hyung. The press package from Cannes describes it as “never before seen action sequences.” They sought to do this by providing “Peerless, Referenceless Action. Action That Is Never Boring. [And]Genderless, Powerful Action.” You can see two exclusive clips here and here. Checkout the synopsis and trailer below.

“From an early age, Sook-hee has received trainings to become an assassin. But once she’s abandoned by her organization, she was recruited by the Korean Intelligence Agency to become a sleeper cell under a fake identity. She was to live a normal life and carry out missions for 10 years, and only then she could truly become free. But when her newest target turns out to be someone she once loved, she is conflicted between her mission and heart.”
