We might never get that second season of Firefly, but how about an updated version of it with Korean actors?
In the new South Korean Netflix film, Space Sweepers, the plot explores the fictional adventures of a ragtag crew that makes their living on space salvage. Oh, and let’s not forget there’s a cute robot included.
“Space Sweepers” debuts on Feb. 5 and a new trailer from Netflix shows a production value that is off the charts. Some of the shots include space explosions, a robot throwing a spear from the hull of a space station, and incredible shots of planets and spacecraft.
Starring characters include space pilot Tae-ho (Song Joong-ki, “Running Man”), ex-space pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae-ri, “The Handmaiden”), spaceship engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun-kyu, “The Outlaws”), and the aforementioned military robot, Bubs (Yoo Hai-jin, “A Taxi Driver”).
In a statement, Netflix said the new film will demonstrate the challenges that the four main crew members — who have very different personalities — encounter while they work together on the spaceship Victory. The show focuses on the events after the crew tries to salvage a derelict spaceship, then finds an unexpected passenger inside.
