Escape the Apocalypse in the Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula Trailer!

-

Well Go USA has brought online the new Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula trailer and you can watch all the insane footage using the player below! The film, which is an official Cannes Film Festival selection, takes place four years after the zombie outbreak in Train to Busan (buy at Amazon).

The Korean peninsula is devastated and Jung-seok, a former soldier who has managed to escape overseas, is given a mission to go back and unexpectedly meets survivors.

Acclaimed director Yeon Sang-ho brings us Peninsula, the next nail-biting chapter in his post-apocalyptic world. Jung-seok, 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.

Shot over 62 days starting in June 2019, the follow-up stars Gang Dong-won, Lee Jung-hyun, Lee Re, Kwon Hae-hyo, Kim Min-jae, Koo Kyo-hwan, and Lee Ye Won.

The first film was released in July of 2016 and grossed $140 million worldwide. Sang-ho previously talked to Screen Daily about Peninsula.

“It takes place four years after Train To Busan, in the same universe, but it doesn’t continue the story and has different characters,” said the filmmaker. “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.”

He added: “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 Peninsula has a much wider scope of movement.”

Sang-ho was at first reluctant to do a follow-up to Train to Busan, “but 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. There could be many stories that could keep coming out of that world. Destroyed, isolated, extreme, but with hope of escape and humanism, and the way world powers would look at this place. There could be a lot of material with a lot of greater significance.”

In case you missed them, you can still watch the previously-released Peninsula trailer and view the posters below.
