Deadline is reporting that the Train to Busan sequel, Peninsula (also known as Train to Busan presents: Peninsula), is getting a North American cinematic release on the 7th August 2020, whilst also exclusively streaming on Shudder in early 2021.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
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.
Well Go USA will have the film screen on one-hundred-and-fifty screen across the U.S and Canada, whilst also hoping to rerelease Train to Busan later this month in order to build anticipation for the film, which will also feature an exclusive first look at Peninsula.
Craig Engler, Shudder’s general manager, released a statement saying:
Peninsula is one of the most anticipated horror movie sequels of the last decade and exactly the kind of film Shudder members are hungry for. Yeon Sang-ho set the bar for zombie movies with Train to Busan and its prequel Seoul Station, and we’re thrilled to be the home of his new masterpiece—and the only place where movie lovers will be able to stream this outstanding trilogy together.
The film stars Gang Dong-Won, Lee Jung-Hyun, Lee Re, Kwon Hae-Hyo, Kim Min-Jae, Koo Gyo-Hwan, Kim Do-Yoon and Lee Ye-Won.
