Gundala is Joko’s first attempt in the superhero genre. The movie was based on the comic character Gundala, created by Harya “Hasmi” Suraminata in 1969 and is set as the first installment of the BumiLangit Cinematic Universe.

Actor Abimana Aryasatya stars as the main character, alongside Tara Basro, Bront Palarae, Ario Bayu, Cecep Arif Rahman, Lukman Sardi, Rio Dewanto and Muzakki Ramdhan.

It was released in Indonesia in August 2019, attracting more than 1 million moviegoers in seven days, and had its international premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival in September. (gis/wng)
