Train to Busan 2: Peninsula

Train to Busan 2: Peninsula

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.

“Yeon Sang-ho is employing the ALIEN/ALIENS expansion formula, creating a sequel that breaks away from the style and tone of its predecessor while still clearly taking place in the same thematic universe.” (NOW Toronto)

“A viscerally pleasurable viewing experience.” (Globe & Mail)
