About Emergency Declaration Movie:

Filming restarted on September 12, 2020, after a postponement due to the COVID-19 resurgence in August 2020. The film was wrapped up on October 24, 2020.

On August 29, 2019, Showbox confirmed that Song Kang-ho and Lee Byung-hun have agreed to appear in director Han Jae-rim’s next film Emergency Declaration.

Filming began in May 2020 and wrapped up in October 2020.

The airplane set was made by airlifting the entire waste plane from the United States. The motif of the early model of the Boeing 777, was used to create a set. With the help of a gimbal with a diameter of 7 meters and a length of 12 meters, it was made to rotate at 360-degree rotation.

Emergency Declaration premiered out of competition at the 74th Cannes Film Festival on July 16, 2021, before being released theatrically in South Korea on August 3, 2022. The film was screened in various formats, including on a 4DX screen combining 4DX and ScreenX in addition to IMAX. It was released in the United States on August 12, 2022, and in Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Malaysia on August 4.

Produced at a cost of ₩26 billion (US$22.73 million), the film opened in first place at the South Korean box office and surpassed two million admissions in 18 days. It is the 8th highest-grossing Korean film of 2022.

There were five rounds of auditions to choose actors who could realize the image and acting tone of each passenger.
