5 Points Pictures: Announcement of the Special-edition DVD Release of Punch
GRIMES, Iowa, Oct. 31, 2012 – Film distributor 5 Points Pictures is pleased to announce the two-disc, special-edition DVD release of Punch will be available on February 19, 2013.
5 Points Pictures’ release of Punch will feature an upgraded English translation of the film, plus nearly an hour and 15 minutes of translated and subtitled video extras from the South Korean limited-edition releases.
Punch was one of 2011’s surprise box-office champs – with more than 5.3 million tickets sold in South Korea – and following its world premiere at the Busan International Film Festival, it went on to screen at the Berlin International Film Festival, Udine Far East Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, and Fantasia Film Festival, as well as throughout North America.
A coming-of-age story with equal parts humor and humanity, Punch features direction by Lee Han (Lover’s Concerto, Almost Love) and standout performances from Yoo Ah-in (Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Antique) and Kim Yun-seok (The Thieves, The Chaser), along with Kim Sang-ho (Moss, City Hunter TV), Park Soo-young (Architecture 101) and Jasmine Lee.
Based upon a best-selling young-adult novel by Kim Ryeo-ryeong, Punch was produced by UBU Film and Another Pictures. It is presented by CJ Entertainment.
