With the current state of affairs in the world, it’s only apt that a dystopian Netflix Original is on the way in April 2020. The Korean Original Time to Hunt trailer and plot details are all available.
Yoon Sung Hyun is the director and writer of Time to Hunt, a South Korean Netflix Original dystopian drama. On February 22, 2018, Time to Hunt made its debut at the Berlin Film Festival. The film was initially scheduled for theatrical release. However, due to the outbreak of coronavirus, it was delayed indefinitely and Netflix was able to acquire the rights for global distribution.
Netflix will stream Time to Hunt on Friday April 10, 2020.
Subscribers will rejoice to hear that the Original Film will now be streamable worldwide, even South Korea.
The Swoon provided the plot of Time to Hunt:
In hopes of escaping a dystopian city and a chance at a new life, four friends with nothing to lose plan a casino heist. But what seemed like a bulletproof plan turns into a chase for their lives when they fall prey to a mysterious hunter who wants them dead.
Time to Hunt stars the following actors:
|Role||Cast Member||Where Have I Seen/Heard Them Before?|
|Joon Suk||Lee Je Hoon||Hot Stove League | Signal | I Can Speak|
|Jang Ho||Ahn Jae Hong||Kingdom | Be Melodramatic | Reply 1988|
|Gi Hoon||Choi Woo Shik||Fight For My Way | The Package | Parasite|
|Sang Soo||Park Jung Min||Mr. Sunshine | Keys to the Heart | Behead the King|
|Han||Park Hae See||Prison Playbook | Six Flying Dragons | The Pirates|
|TBA||Bae Je Ki||Kingdom | Two Weeks | Anarchist from Colony|
While we can only expect to hear a better account from fans and critics when the movie drops on Netflix in April 2019, the initial consensus seems very positive.
The film has an 83% Rotten Tomatoes rating and an 8.5/10 MyDramaList score at the time it was written.
IMDb is less positive with a score of 6.1 out 10 Taking into consideration that none of the 58 IMDb users that left a score didn’t leave a review, don’t take the score as gospel.
Many will be shocked to find out that the film was shot from January 2018 to June 2018, despite it being released in 2020.
It is likely that Time to Hunt had extensive postproduction. Additionally, it could have taken a very long time for distributors to acquire the film for theatrical release.
