Yeon Sang-ho’s Peninsula AKA Train to Busan 2 has secured distribution all around the world with Well Go USA distributing here in North America. And today we have your first look!
Check out two new stills below!
Director Yeon Sang-ho tells Screen Daily: “It takes place four years after Train To Busan, in the same universe, but it doesn’t continue the story and has different characters. 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 follow-up stars Gang Dong-won as Jung-seok, a former soldier who manages to escape from the Korean peninsula – a zombie-infested wasteland turned into a ghetto by other nations trying to stop the spread of the virus. Sent back with a crew on a mission to retrieve something, he goes in through the port of Incheon to reach Seoul and comes under attack, discovering there are more non-infected survivors left on the peninsula.
Lee Jung-hyun (The Battleship Island) plays one of the survivors, alongside child actress Lee Ye Won, Kwon Hae-hyo, Kim Min-jae, and Koo Kyo-hwan.
