Peninsula, the sequel to South Korean zombie action movie Train to Busan, appeared with its first highly anticipated trailer. The production, which is about four years after the first movie, will take a completely different story with different characters.
Train to Busan, which entered the vision in 2016, succeeded in getting full marks from the audience and critics, although it did not stand out in social media. Offering a mix of highly acclaimed zombie movies, 28 Days Later and World War Z, Train to Busan had a total of $ 92.6 million box office revenue worldwide.
South Korean film, which made its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, is getting ready to appear again after a four-year break. In the news we shared last week, we conveyed the first details from the sequel called Peninsula with you.
Peninsula describes four years after Train to Busan
Director Yeon Sang-ho, who gave an interview to ScreenDaily, stated that the sequel would not contain the same characters as Train to Busan and would not directly follow the story of the first film. After this announcement, which raised expectations, we were looking forward to the trailer from Peninsula. And now, the first trailer from the movie has been released, which will give us a breathless zombie thriller.
The new story is about four years after Train to Busan. Describing a new order in which the government was destroyed after the zombie outbreak in Korea, Peninsula follows the adventure of a soldier who must return to Seoul, where zombies invade for a vital mission.
Peninsula, which is twice the original film and shot with a budget of about 8 million dollars, seems to meet the expectations with what it gave us in its first trailer. The movie, starring Gang Dong-won (1987: When The Day Comes) and Lee Jung-hyun (The Battleship Island), is scheduled to meet with the audience in August, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may extend this period further.
