2016’s Train to Busan was a South Korean zombie flick that shook the dust off of the stale genre and delivered something visceral to fans of shambling hordes of the undead. When the film premiered, it was a massive worldwide hit, breaking box office records in South Korea and receiving overwhelming critical praise. Of course, fans have been waiting patiently for a follow-up, and their wish will soon be granted.

THE PLOTLINE OF THE FILM
Train to Busan 2: Penisula is not so much a sequel. The story is after the incidents of the first film. Now this time the city, Busan is completely ruined. The name of the sequel is taken from the Korean peninsula, which shows any signs of civilization in the film.
Another important detail is that the scope of this film will be much larger than the deliberately small scale of its predecessor. Yeon pointed to action blockbusters like George Romero’s Land of the Dead and Mad Max: Fury Road as influences on the sequel, which were very evident in the film’s first trailer.
