‘Escape the apocalypse’

The much-awaited follow-up to the 2016 zombie hit ‘Train To Busan‘ has finally released its first official thriller – and TBH, it feels like an entirely different film.

Titled ‘Peninsula‘ to represent the capital of Korea, the sequel follows a new set of characters navigating life 4 years after the events of ‘Busan‘.

Unlike the first film, the concept looks much broader as the infestation has spread all over the city, completely turning civilization into a savage wild west.

‘4 years after Train To Busan, nothing is left.’

The trailer first shows the city overgrown with plant life and streets completely deserted, as the zombie infestation has seemingly taken over the Busan film universe.

We then see just a few glimpses of how humans are dealing with the apocalypse, from risking their lives for supplies, hosting deathly gambling fights, living in evacuation centers, to basically trying to outrun a horde of zombies every day.

‘The idea of being able to build a post-apocalyptic world – which would be sort of savage but also in a way like ancient times or like ruined modern times, with rules of its own – was interesting to me,’ director Yeon Sang-ho shared on the film’s execution.

‘There could be a lot of material with a lot of greater significance.’

Meanwhile, the film also introduces the sequel’s new ensemble cast made up of Jung Suk (Kang Dong-Won) Min Jung (Lee Jung Hyun), along with actors Joon Yi and Kwon Hae Hyo.

‘Peninsula‘s trailer ends with an ominous ‘Coming Soon‘ – which could mean anything as the film has yet to clarify if they’re following the scheduled release this summer, or postponing due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It’s a little ironic when you think about it.
