Posted Tue Oct 23, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The Best International Film at the 2012 Fant-Asia Film Festival is bound for Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is preparing 'Doomsday Book' for high-definition on December 11.

Internationally-renowned Directors Kim Ji-woon ('I Saw the Devil,' 'The Good, The Bad, the Weird') and Yim Pil-sung ('Hansel & Gretel') present three interpretations on an apocalyptic theme in the anthology film 'Doomsday Book.' In the first film, Director Yim Pil-Sung opens with Brave New World, starring Ryoo Seung-bum ('The Servant') as a young man trying to survive in a world infected by biological toxins. The centerpiece of the film, Heavily Creature, directed by Kim Ji-woon, stars Kim Kang-woo ('A Better Tomorrow'), Kim Gyu-ri ('Portrait of a Beauty') and Park Hae-il ('War of the Arrows') as citizens of Seoul who must deal with the innovations of the high-tech modern world where a religion-practicing robot achieves enlightenment and must escape the evil manufacturer who wants to destroy it. Director Yim Pil-Sung closes the film with Happy Birthday, starring newcomer Song Sae-byoek, Jin Ji-hee ('Hansel & Gretel') and Bae Doo-na ('Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance'). Elementary school student Park Min-seo (Jin Ji-hee) accidentally orders a mysterious package off the internet that puts Earth and all its inhabitants at risk of extinction..

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
