First Image Released From Zombie Flick 'Train To Busan' Follow-Up

First Image Released From Zombie Flick 'Train To Busan' Follow-Up

Parasite might have been the first South Korean film to ever receive Academy Award recognition - picking up gongs for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film at this year's Oscar's - but it's not the first time the country has produced a super terrifying movie with wide international appeal.

That accolade goes to Train To Busan, the 2016 zombie flick directed by Yeon Sang-ho, which is fast-paced, on the edge of your seat action horror at its very best. Now, some four years later, the first image from its follow-up, Peninsula, has been revealed. And while it's hard - well, impossible - to really tell or judge anything from a single photo, it certainly looks like Peninsula is going to follow in its predecessor's harrowing, thrilling and hair-rasiing footsteps.

Speaking to Screen Daily, Sang-ho explained that Peninsula isn't a sequel in the traditional sense of the word, but is still connected to its successful predecessor.

"It takes place four years after Train To Busan, in the same universe," he said, "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 film follows a former soldier named Jung-seok, who manages to escape from the Korean peninsula, a a zombie-infested wasteland that's been turned into a ghetto by other nations in their attempts to stop the spread of the virus.

"The scale of Peninsula can't compare to Train To Busan," said Sang-ho. "It makes it look like an independent film. Train To Busan was a high-concept film shot in narrow spaces whereas Peninsula has a much wider scope of movement."
