Movie Is Still Set For Summer Release
New posters have dropped for zombie sequel Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula, which takes place four years after the outbreak in Train To Busan.
Peninsula follows a former soldier named Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), who escaped the zombie outbreak but has to return to Korea on a mission and face a zombie-infested wasteland turned into a ghetto by other nations trying to stop the spread of the virus. Along the way, he runs into other survivors in Seoul. When he tries to complete his mission and retrieve something to bring out of the wasteland, he unexpectedly meets up with some non-infected survivors who are still in Seoul.
Talking about filming the sequel, director Yeon Sang-ho said –
“The scale of Peninsula can’t compare to Train To Busan, it makes it look like an independent film,”
“Train To Busan was a high-concept film shot in narrow spaces whereas Peninsulahas a much wider scope of movement. Government authority has been decimated after the zombie outbreak in Korea, and there is nothing left except the geographical traits of the location – which is why the film is called Peninsula.”
The film is in the same universe, but it doesn’t continue the story and has different characters.
Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula is slated to premiere in theaters around the world in July.
