[trailer][poster] Just call it “Black Eagle (R2B: Return to Base)” at the London Korean Film Fest 2012.

We don’t yet know if Rain’s summer Korean blockbuster film, R2B: Return to Base, will be coming to the United Kingdom for a limited run.
But we do know that R2B will be screened at this year’s London Korean Film Festival on November 5 at the London Odeon Cinema on Panton Street, and on November 16 at the Bournemouth Odean on Westover Road in Dorset.
How about that, U.K. fans?
The “Black Eagle” title is a really smart move, seeing as the ROK Air Force Black Eagles aerobatic team took several U.K. air shows by storm this past June, won awards there, and got in the news. When festival attendees see “Black Eagle”, they will connect the dots. The cool demonstration team from South Korea → the team in Rain’s movie → Rain. As I’ve already said, it’s imperative that R2B: Return to Base be marketed properly for the particular area it arrives in, for the best chance at success. This was a good call.
The London Korean Film Festival 2012 starts on November 1 and will also travel to Glasgow and Bristol. CJ Entertainment‘s R2B, Masquerade, Deranged, I AM: SMTown, and many other terrific Korean movies will be on the marquee, so if you’re anywhere near the Union Jack, be there!
