Peninsula: Train To Busan 2

About 4 years ago, a South Korean horror film titled “Train To Busan” premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

In 2017, this horror movie set a record as the first Korean film of 2016 to break the audience record of over 10 million theatergoers.

For those of you who haven’t heard or seen “Train To Busan”, most of the movie takes place in a crowded high-speed commuter train headed for Busan, South Korea. Unknown to the passengers, a zombie apocalypse has broken out in the country. An infected person has snuck on the train. Soon she turns and attacks other people. Well, we all know the drill.

In 2017, Netflix and Amazon Prime made the movie available for American viewership. I loved this movie so much, I had to do an article on it.

Scheduled in August 2020, “Peninsula: Train To Busan 2” will be released according to Sang-ho Yeon, Director of this movie and the first movie.

Some of you probably are worn out with this genre. I understand. Trust me. But when “Train To Busan” came on Netflix, it seemed we all started to recall how really terrifying zombies really are when done right.

Director Yeon explained that “Peninsula” is not a sequel to “Train To Busan” even though it is billed as that. Yeon further elaborated the movie takes place after 4 years of the “Train” movie in downtown Seoul. It is described as a mixture of “Day of The Dead” and “Mad Max.”

It has been rumored that an American version of “Train To Busan.” has been tossed around in Hollywood. With all that is going around with this COVID-19 mayhem, it probably has been postponed or scrapped altogether. In the meantime, while most of us are in quarantine, check out “Train To Busan” If you haven’t seen it. Lots of horror and action.

A release date for “Peninsula” has not been released as I am writing this article.
