We can’t wait for the next installment in the South Korean undead saga, and the new preview just upped the anticipation.
Coming to theaters this summer (with Well Go USA handling North American distribution), TRAIN TO BUSAN PRESENTS: PENINSULA was once again directed by Yeon Sang-ho, and stars Gang Dong-won, Lee Jung-hyun, Lee Re, Kwon Hae-hyo, Kim Min-jae and Koo Kyo-hwan. The synopsis: “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 postapocalyptic world. Jung-seok [Gang], 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.”
You can read our interview with Yeon on PENINSULA in RUE MORGUE #195, coming in July.
