Or more accurately titled “Train to Busan presents: Peninsula”. This is the sequel to the stellar South Korean zombie movie “Train to Busan”. That 2016 survival-horror romp was a tension-soaked, edge-of-your-seat experience full of good characters and laced with some pretty thoughtful social commentary. And it’s action sequences still stand out to me.
Now director Yeon Sang-ho returns with “Peninsula”. The idea is that four years after the zombie apocalypse Korea is essentially a wasteland. At least that’s what a group of soldiers on a retrieval mission think until they discover a groups of survivors. With zombie swarms all around, will we see the best or worst of humanity in the face of desperation and survival? The new trailer shows a much bigger scope and even crazier action. Sign me up.
“Peninsula” is set to release later this year although a US date hasn’t been nailed down just yet. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
