The zombie action thriller Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula, which had sneak previews on July 15 at Malaysian cinemas, earned RM520k at the local box office in just one day.

This is the highest collection for a sneak preview for a Korean movie in Malaysia.

Peninsula is the follow-up film from director Yeon Sang-ho to his 2016 hit Train To Busan, which reigns as the No.1 South Korean film in Malaysia.

Peninsula is the first new blockbuster movie to release in Malaysia after cinemas reopened for business on July 1. Cinemas were shuttered since March 18 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The film was shown on 196 screens nationwide on July 15. Its general screening began on July 16.
