Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed the release date for its new film SPACE SWEEPERS as 5 February 2020. The first teaser of Space Sweepers has also been revealed.
Set in 2092, the planet Earth is in decay by global pollution, overpopulation, disasters, droughts, and famines. In order to survive, mankind must soon find a new home with the right environment to sustain human life. Meanwhile, the wealthy and powerful built themselves a new high-tech space habitat calling it the ‘Utopian Skies’ and took control of all the resources while the rest of the people struggle to survive on the ruined Earth.
Spaceship Victory is one of the many that live off salvaging space debris. Crewed with a genius space pilot Tae-ho (Song Joong-Ki), a mysterious ex-space pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae-Ri), a spaceship engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun-Kyu), and a reprogrammed military robot Bubs (Yoo Hai-Jin), Spaceship Victory surpasses all other space sweepers. After successfully snatching a crashed space shuttle in the latest debris chase, Victory’s crew find a 7-year-old girl inside. They realise that she’s the humanlike robot wanted by UTS Space Guards, and decide to demand ransom in exchange.
The teaser trailer reveals a glimpse of the spaceship crew’s characters and their plans for exchanging a humanlike robot found from piles of space debris. With its stunning space action and thrills, Space Sweepers also show comical tension between these four extraordinary spaceship crews who do not harmonise with each other.
SPACE SWEEPERS, excitement-packed outer space sci-fi blockbuster, directed by Jo Sung-hee of A Werewolf Boy and Phantom Detective, will be available 5 February only on Netflix.
