‘Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula’ Gets Theatrical Release Date

There’s a reason that 2016’s Train to Busan made it on to my list of the “Top 20 Horror Films of the Past 5 Years” and that’s because it was brilliant – the best thing to happen to the zombie genre since Shaun and Ed’s 2004 bromance amongst their British undead outbreak.

Now news from Deadline that the sequel, Train to Busan presents: Peninsula is slated to hit U.S. and Canadian theaters on August 7th via Well Go USA. Well Go is also planning on a North American run of 2016’s Train to Busan later this month as a sort of appetizer for drooling zombie fans.

Also announced is that Shudder will be grabbing Peninsula for their streaming channel early 2021. Craig Engler, Shudder’s GM, said, “Peninsula is one of the most anticipated horror movie sequels of the last decade and exactly the kind of film Shudder members are hungry for. Yeon Sang-ho set the bar for zombie movies with Train to Busan and its prequel Seoul Station, and we’re thrilled to be the home of his new masterpiece—and the only place where movie lovers will be able to stream this outstanding trilogy together.”

Here is the official synopsis for followed by the latest trailer:

Four years after South Korea’s decimation in Train to Busan, the sequel centers on Jung-seok, a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, who 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.
