I recently got the chance to finally watch Train To Busan, the Korean zombie thriller that set the world on fire upon its release and had the general consensus of everyone else that it was a thrilling, adrenaline rush of a movie.
Now that I’ve seen the original, I am even more excited for the follow up titled Train To Busan Presents Peninsula which promises a larger scale action pic that’ll take the first entry and amp it up even more. Well Go USA is releasing the movie in select cinemas this August and hopefully they will be open because this one looks fun as hell.
Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in Train to Busan, the zombie thriller that captivated audiences across the globe and dazzled the worldwide box office, 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.
This time around (amid our very own outbreak), prepare to be wowed again by Yeon Sang-ho, as we return to the nerve-wracking zombie-ridden wasteland with a much larger-scale setting, incredible visual effects, high-speed car chases, amplified budget, and explosive thrills.
The thrill-a-minute sequel is set for release on August 7th in select cinemas and will be followed up by a Digital, Blu-Ray and DVD launch soon after. Check out the latest trailer below and get ready for a war!
