Remember when this only happened in movies?
The highly-anticipated sequel to the 2016 hit ‘Train to Busan’ has released official photos on the set – and it looks much darker than the original.
Titled ‘Peninsula‘, the upcoming film is apparently set 4 years after the events of the first film. It also follows a new set of characters and will dive into the aftermath of the zombie infestation that began in ‘Train to Busan‘.
Aiming to deepen the lore of the ‘Train to Busan’ universe, the new film will follow military veteran Jung-Seok, portrayed by Gang Dong-won (‘The Priest’, ‘A Violent Prosecutor’), who returns to a zombie-infested South Korea to rescue survivors from the apocalypse.
“The scale of Peninsula can’t compare to Train to Busan, it makes it look like an independent film,’ shared director Yeon Sang-ho ‘Train to Busan was a high-concept film shot in narrow spaces whereas Peninsula has a much wider scope of movement.’
Based on the action-packed stills, ‘Peninsula‘ doesn’t seem to be held in a single setting anymore, as we see the lead Jung-Seok in a face-off with some nasty zombies.
Meanwhile, ‘Peninsula‘ is still set to drop this summer despite the Coronavirus outbreak, as there’s still no official announcement of a rescheduled release date.
Either way, it’s timely AF
