Luc Besson's 'Dogman' to be released in Korea in January 2024
Director Luc Besson's new film 'Dogman' has confirmed its domestic release in January 2024.

'Dog Man' is a work that depicts the tragic and beautiful story of a man who was saved by a dog despite being ignored by God. It is a film directed by Luc Besson, who directed ‘Leon’ and ‘Lucy’.

Director Luc Besson said that he started telling the story based on an actual incident as a motif, starting with the imagination of 'what kind of life would a child raised in a cage live after spending a painful childhood and given the opportunity to choose?' Director Luc Besson, who visited the Busan International Film Festival, explained, "'Dogman' is like my resume that condenses the 20 films I have made so far."

The role of Douglas, the main character who heals his wounds and creates his own world through dogs, is played by actor Caleb Landry Jones. He won the Best Actor Award at the 74th Cannes International Film Festival for the movie 'Nitram' and is a talented actor trusted and loved by top Hollywood directors such as Martin McDonagh of 'Three Billboards', Sean Baker of 'The Florida Project', and Jordan Peele of 'Get Out'.

The teaser poster captures attention with the image of a Doberman that seems to be protecting someone and the message, "Wherever there is misfortune, God sends a dog." Just as GOD becomes DOG in reverse order, the copy that implicitly contains the message of the movie draws curiosity to the story that Douglas unfolds.
