Netflix has acquired the worldwide rights to  ‘Pandora’, the South Korean nuclear thriller, Variety reports. ‘Pandora’ comes from the producers behind ‘Train to Busan’, the acclaimed post-apocalypse zombie film released earlier this year.

In the film, a “worker at a nuclear power plant must save the day after an earthquake damages the facility and threatens to cause a catastrophe.”

‘Pandora’ was directed by Park Jung Woo (Deranged) and stars Kim Nam-gil, Jung Jin-young, Kim Young-ae, and Kim Dae-myeiong.


We are excited to work with Next Entertainment World to bring such high-quality Korean titles like ‘Pandora’ to our members worldwide,” stated Rob Roy, VP of content acquisition at Netflix. “Netflix is committed to bringing the best of global entertainment to the world and in an era where the internet knows no bounds, this is another step towards delivering great stories to fans no matter where they live.”

We are delighted to partner with Netflix, a world-class content distributor, to be able to present ‘Pandora’ to global audiences in over 190 countries. Following the recent success of ‘Train to Busan’ in Asia, we hope the nuclear-themed ‘Pandora’ can win much love from the audiences worldwide,” said NEW CEO Kim Woo-Taek.


Netflix will release ‘Pandora’ on its streaming service to 190 countries sometime in 2017.
