It’s been four years since the excellent Train to Busan, and if you think those zombies have taken a break…you’re in for a bloody surprise. And a bloody good time, if this trailer is any indication. If Busan was Snowpiercer with zombies, this new film is Escape From New York with, well…you dig. Synopsis!
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.
Peninsula carries Busan‘s story of the zombie outbreak in South Korea and introduces a new cast of characters in a new location. Director Yeon Sang-ho revisits the world of Busan and the animated Seoul Station in this action packed horror joint, and I can’t wait.
Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula is scheduled to invade theaters in America August 12th, 2020. Get ready.
