The highly anticipated period movie, “The Fortress,” will be released in the U.S. on Oct. 20. Lee Byung-hun (“Bittersweet Life,” “Magnificent Seven,” “Terminator Genisys” and “Red 2”) leads the star-filled cast. The story is set in 1636, when the Manchu Qing Dynasty sends an invasion force of 150,000 troops into Korea to sever its ties to the Ming Dynasty.


The Korean court flees the capital to take shelter in the Namhan Fortress, located in treacherous mountains outside the city, according to a synopsis from CJ Entertainment. The Qing army, led by Gen. Yong Gol Dae, quickly surrounds the fortress, leaving the king and court stranded in a prolonged standoff.


Unable to escape or fight the enemy they are outnumbered by, the people inside the fortress start dying from cold and hunger. The king faces an impossible choice between protecting his people and standing up to those looking to destroy them.


No details are available on whether the movie will open in Hawaii.
