Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula

Sang-ho Yeon

Make it a zombie-tastic double-bill with the original Train to Busan

Boasting a truly irresistible set-up (zombie outbreak on a speeding train) 2016’s Train to Busan was a jolt of adrenaline to the shuffling corpse of the zombie sub-genre, and this standalone sequel from original director Sang-ho Yeon expands upon the world of the original film while keeping its spirit intact, introducing us a to a host of new characters thrust into excruciatingly dangerous situations and of course, delivering plenty more apocalyptic zombie action.

“…a frenetic thrill-ride which positively revels in the onscreen mayhem”

After a brief prologue (featuring an outbreak on water, rather than rails), Peninsula picks up four years after the events of the first film, as guilt-ridden former Korean military Captain Jung-Seok is living a dangerous life on the streets of Hong Kong, the entire Korean peninsula now sealed off from the world and abandoned to the zombies. He, along with his brother-in-law, is hired by a shady gang to enter the now abandoned Korea and retrieve for them a truck carrying million of dollars; in return he’ll receive a share of the profits and potentially a way to pull himself out of his current life. It is hardly a spoiler to say that, upon re-entering the zombie-infested peninsula, things inevitably don’t go quite entirely to plan for Jung-Seok.

While the original Train to Busan was confined almost entirely to the one location, here Yeon is working on an entirely different scale and visual palette, weaving influences like Escape from New York and Mad Max into his vision of an undead apocalypse. Edited by Parasite’s Jinmo Yang, and with a distinct touch of humour, fun and wry wit amongst the gore and gristle, Peninsula is a frenetic thrill-ride which positively revels in the onscreen mayhem, making it perfect Halloween viewing.


When you’re booking your cinema ticket you’ll notice the cinema has been divided into ‘bubbles’ of one or two in order to maintain social distancing. You won’t be able to book part of a bubble, but you can book more than one: for instance a group of four can book two bubbles of two. 

If you can’t find a combination of seats that suits your group please get in touch and we’ll try to help, although capacity is very limited in all screenings.

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email dca@dca.org.uk.
