Fans of the highly-entertaining zombie film Train to Busan have been waiting for a sequel since 2016. And now, we finally have a teaser trailer for Peninsula to enjoy. It’s a little bittersweet, though, because said movie doesn’t have a confirmed release date, yet.

The South Korean film Train to Busan took me by surprise when I watched it back in 2016. I wasn’t expecting it to be one of the best zombie films ever made. It’s incredible. And if you haven’t watched it yet, you should rectify that ASAP.

The upcoming installment (which takes place in the same world) is called Peninsula. It is directed by Yeon Sang-Ho (Train to Busan) and stars Gang Dong-won and Lee Jung-hyun.  

The official description reads:

Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in TRAIN TO BUSAN, the zombie thriller that captivated audiences worldwide, 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.

Here’s the action-packed teaser trailer!

According to the press release I got from Well Go USA Entertainment (the distributor of record for both the US and Canada), Peninsula hasn’t been rated yet. It falls under the genre of horror, drama, and action. Also, the film is in Korean with English subtitles.

As of writing this, information on IMDb states this movie will premiere in France on August 20, 2020. Considering what the entire world is going through right now, I’m not really sure if the current release date will change or not. I guess we’ll find out soon.

While you wait for Peninsula, you should consider checking out the South Korean zombie show Kingdom on Netflix. South Korean talent seems to know how to create zombie content the right way and I’m here for all of it!
