[HanCinema's News] "Escape from Mogadishu" the Latest From Dexter Studios

With the release of "Escape from Mogadishu" this coming July 28th, Dexter Studios finally has a new release to its name. The film from legendary director Ryoo Seung-wan is the first wide release film from the special effects company since "Ashfall" in late 2019. With "Escape from Mogadishu" they are now hoping to make a triumphant return to the box office.


Making their first film release in 2013 with "Mr. Go" starring a gorilla as the title character in the baseball movie, Dexter Studios has prided itself on being a one-stop location for a wide variety of film production aspects. Though focused chiefly on special effects, Dexter Studios also does work with planning, production, shooting, and post-production. Their system has made them the premiere special effects studio in South Korea.

They're collaborating with Filmmaker R&K on "Escape from Mogadishu" which had its location shooting in Morocco. Realistic effects are expected to be emphasized for the film, which dramatizes an attempted defection event involving Koreans from both Koreas back in the nineties. Filmmaker R&K also made "Svaha: The Sixth Finger" and "Exit - Movie" back in 2019, and are similarly eager to return to the South Korean box office.
