Yeon Sang-ho‘s Train to Busan (2016) was definitely one of the best zombie films ever made and now, based on what we see in the first teaser above, it looks to up the ante significantly. Originally planned for a summer release this year, we’re not quite sure when it will land now, looking at how the current COVID-19 pandemic is causing cinemas around the world to close indefinitely.
The official synopsis reads:
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.
