Peninsula is a highly anticipated follow-up that is set in the same universe as the critically acclaimed South Korean zombie outbreak film, Train to Busan.
Many followers have been eager for a sneak peek of the new horror movie and now, after a lot of speculation and waiting, they have got their wish.
ScreenDaily has shared a ‘first-look’ at Peninsula which brilliantly showcases the fiendish, bloodthirsty undead we have come accustomed to seeing.
Returning to direct will be the fantastic Yeon Sang-ho, known for directing 2011s and 2013s animated movies, The King of Pigs and The Fake, as well as his outstanding work on Train to Busan.
The director has had a sensational career thus far, having been nominated for 46 awards, winning an enormous 25 of them.
Some of his most notable achievements are earning a Baek Sang Art Award in the ‘Best New Director’ category, a BloodGuts UK Horror Award in the ‘Best International Film’ category, a Director’s Cut Award in the ‘Genre Film Award’ category, and a KOFRA Film Award in the ‘Discovery Award’ category, and many more, all for the sensational Train to Busan.
Gang Dong-won (mostly known for his portrayals of Lee Han-Yoel in 1987: When the Day Comes, Han Chi-Won in A Violent Prosecutor, and Kim Jae-Myung in Master) will be joining the Peninsula cast.
In another revealing first-look picture, we see Dong-won serving as a soldier and survivors of the outbreak.
Alongside him will be South Korean singer and actress, Lee Jung-hyun. She has memorable roles playing Mallyon in the 2017 action movie The Battleship Island, Lim Jung in 2014s Admiral, Su-nam in Alice in Earnestland.
Before the Covid-19 breakout, Peninsula was expected to be released later this year, but now the official date remains an uncertainty until we start seeing progress on the world’s current crisis.
