Well Go USA has unveiled the first official teaser trailer for the zombie movie Peninsula, the sequel to the 2016 Korean smash hit zombie action thriller Train to Busan.
Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in Train to Busan, Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), 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.
Check out the trailer for Peninsula below:
This first teaser trailer for Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula looks a lot like a mix of Mad Max and many of George A. Romero’s later day zombie flicks, specifically Land of the Dead. We’re going to be getting a lot more undead action and shocking imagery in what promises to be a nonstop ride that might just be one of the most anticipated horror films of the year.
Train to Busan was by no means a quiet horror film. Even when dealing with the claustrophobic nature of a train, the Korean blockbuster is looking even bigger when it comes to Peninsula. Zombie gladiator rings, car chases and the undead being launched at cars like projectile missiles. Given that Train to Busan didn’t skip on character development as well as an emotional payoff, look for Peninsula to deliver both the spectacle and heart.
This sequel is directed again Yeon Sang-ho, who was behind both Train to Busan as well as it’s animated prequel film, Seoul Station as well as the films The King of Pigs, The Fake, and Psychokinesis previously. The screenplay is written by Joo-Suk Park and Sang-ho Yeon. In addition to Gang Dong-won, the film stars Lee Jung-hyun, who plays one of the survivors, alongside child actress Lee Re.

Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula is scheduled to premiere in France in August but still doesn’t have a release date for North America but look for it to hit soon!
