Straight from the festivities at Cannes and with prospects awaiting its releases in multiple territories, director Yeon Sang-Ho’s newest venture, Train To Busan (the follow-up to his 2015 animated feature, Seoul Station) is getting a July 20 release in Korean cinemas. Last month’s first teaser was pretty short but very sweet with a glimpse into the chaos-ridden environment offset by a viral zombie outbreak, but now we have a full-on trailer that immerses you further into mankind’s contained battle on the undead.
A mysterious viral outbreak pushes Korea into a state of emergency!
As an unidentified virus sweeps the country, Korean government declares martial law.
Those on an express train to Busan, a city that has successfully fended off the viral outbreak, must fight for their own survival…
453 km from Seoul to Busan.
The struggle to survive by those who have others to protect!
Get on board to stay alive!
It’s pretty much World War Z meets Snowpiercer without the white stuff, but still a fun premise no less. The Suspect star Gong Yoo leads the cast with Veteran co-star Ma Dong-Seok, and actress Jung Yu-Mi and Coin Locker Girl co-star Kim Soo-Ahn.
