Movies In Focus called 2016’s Train To Busan ‘the best zombie movie since Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later’. The South Korean horror followed a father and daughter struggling to get to Busan by train in the middle of a zombie outbreak. It’s a thrilling film, visceral and very, very watchable (read the full review here). The film was a smash hit, grossing over $93 million globally.
Now a sequel is on the way – Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula. This follow-up appears to up the scope of the original and deliver more – more zombies, more action and more thrills. It looks great! No release date is set at the minute, but considering current events with the Coronavirus, it might be some way off. It’s something to look forward to, I guess.
Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in TRAIN TO BUSAN, the zombie thriller that captivated audiences worldwide, acclaimed director Yeon Sang-ho brings us PENINSULA, the next nail-biting chapter in his post-apocalyptic world. Jung-seok, a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, relives the horror when assigned to a covert operation with two simple objectives: retrieve and survive. When his team unexpectedly stumbles upon survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best—or worst—of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.
