Peninsula is the zombie film to look out for in 2020.

The movie is the follow-up to Korea’s Train to Busan in 2016 that shocked the world with a terrifying fast spreading zombie virus. It proved that the real enemy isn’t the zombies, but humans striving to fight for their survival.

Four years later, director Yeon Sang-ho returns with its sequel Peninsula for a post-apocalyptic world from zombie aftermath.

Here’s the synopsis:

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.

The film stars Gang Dong-won and Lee Jung-hyun.

Peninsula is a 2020 Cannes Film Festival selection. The film will be released sometime this summer.

Train to Busan premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and set an audience record in Korea with over 10 million theater attendees. During that year, it also became the highest-grossing film in Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The worldwide theatrical run ended with $93.1 million.

I’ve viewed Train to Busan on Netflix this week, and I have to rank the film in the top 10 zombie movies of all time. This film demonstrated the horrors of a fast-spreading zombie virus and a relentless army of zombies that won’t quit. The real plot point is when the fellow humans, who are willing to do anything for survival—including killing other survivors.

Check out the trailer for Peninsula below and let us know what you think.
