Peninsula, a Korean-made zombie horror action movie, has unveiled an 8K trailer ahead of its premiere in theatres this summer. The film is a four-years-later sequel to Train To Busan, which smashed multiple records around Asia.

Despite its genre film status Train got its launch at the 2016 Cannes festival as a midnight screening, before conquering the summer season in Korea and the Asia region. Peninsula is set for a similar course, having been named in the official selection of this year's virtual Cannes.

It is aiming for a July release, but the exact date has not been locked in due to the uncertainties in the releasing calendar caused by the coronavirus outbreak. Distributor Next Entertainment World and its rights sales unit Contents Panda say that international releases will be closely coordinated as soon as the Korean outing is confirmed.

Korean cinemas reopened last month. And, after an initial hesitation, audience numbers are beginning to swell - the top five films earned over US$3mil (RM12.9mil) this weekend - and distributors are now rebuilding the summer releasing schedule.

Train clocked up 11.5 million admissions in Korea for a US$76.9mil gross, and a US$140mil worldwide total.

Directed again by Yeon Sangho, Peninsula stars Gang Dongwon as a survivor of the previous Train wreck return to Korea to retrieve a huge cash hoard. After things go wrong, he and his team are aided by a female survivor, played by Lee Junghyun. – Reuters
