‘Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula’ is Now an Official Cannes Selection!!!

I’m not sure what this means in the current climate, but it’s still a great honor to be a Cannes Official Selection.

Despite its cancellation due to the coronavirus, Cannes is currently revealing the 56 movies chosen for its Official Selection as a badge of honor for the movies and in a bid to boost their distribution credentials, explains Deadline.

Included in the early announcement is Yeon Sang-ho‘s Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula, which will be released presumably later this year through Well Go USA.

In the film, “Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in Train to Busan, Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), 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.”

Actress Lee Jung-hyun plays one of the survivors, alongside child actress Lee Re – whom Yeon told ScreenDaily he thinks will become “more [popular] than Ma Dong-seok [aka Don Lee] in Train to Busan”.

Yeon Sang-ho‘s Train to Busan is easily one of the best zombie films ever made and the trailer for its sequel looks to up the ante tenfold.
