CJ Entertainment is thrilled to announce the North American release of THE TOWER on 1.11.2013. Already stirring up intense interest in Korea where it opens as the holiday blockbuster offering for this Christmas, THE TOWER features a star-studded ensemble cast including SUL Kyung-gu (NO MERCY, 2009; HAEUNDAE, 2009), SON Ye-jin (A MOMENT TO REMEMBER, 2004; SPELLBOUND, 2011) and KIM Sang-kyung (MEMORIES OF MURDER, 2003). Interwoven dramatic storylines, heartfelt acting, and show-stopping pyrotechnics make THE TOWER a bold new addition to the disaster action movie genre.
Christmas Eve – at Tower Sky – the ultra-luxurious landmark building complex, a “White Christmas” party is held to dazzle its equally high-end tenants and VIP guests. Dae-ho (KIM Sang-kyung), the manager of the building and single father, is forced to cancel plans with his daughter Hana (CHO Mina) to work the event. His Christmas is saved when Yoon-hee (SON Ye-jin), the food mall manager with a secret crush on Dae-ho, offers to babysit Hana during the party. Meanwhile, Young-ki (SUL Kyung-gu) the legendary fire chief of Yoido Station has finally promised his first holiday date night to his long suffering wife. The party is in full swing with the spectacular sight of two helicopters flying overhead just to spray snow on the partygoers and make everything perfect. When unthinkable disaster strikes, Dae-ho and Young-ki must summon all their strength and courage to save the lives of thousands but at what cost to themselves and their loved ones?
