Upcoming zombie horror film Peninsula has dropped new posters featuring leads Gang Dong-won and Lee Jung-hyun.
Set four years after the zombie outbreak in Train to Busan (2016), the film is set in an abandoned and ravaged Korean Peninsula. Nothing remains except the geography and the ruins of cities. Gang Dong-won (Illang: The Wolf Brigade) stars as Jeong-seok, a former soldier who managed to escape the outbreak but is forced to return with a crew on a covert retrieval mission. During his journey, he ends up getting trapped and runs into several non-infected people still struggling to survive.
Peninsula also stars Lee Jung-hyun (Love, Again) who plays one of the survivors, child actress Lee Re (Miss and Mrs. Cops), Kwon Hae-hyo (Fukuoka), and Kim Min-jae (Money). It is written and directed by Yeon Sang-ho, who also wrote and directed Train to Busan and its animated prequel Seoul Station.
The first poster shows Gang Dong-won and Lee Jung-hyun in a car, with Gang aiming to use his military-grade rifle and Lee driving the car. Both sport expressions of intense terror and focus on their faces.
The second poster shows most of the main cast trapped against the backdrop of a ruined city. This poster depicts the scale of devastation and makes the viewers wonder how these people will make their way out of the city.
Recently, the film was officially selected as an entry for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival. It is set to hit theaters in South Korea and other foreign countries in July.
