The highly anticipated zombie sequel for Train to Busan, Peninsula, now has a release date for North America, along with heading to Shudder next year!
August 7th. That’s (supposedly) when you’ll be able to check out Peninsula in theaters (it’s also my birthday, but that’s neither here nor there). Well Go USA announced the release date for the Train to Busan sequel, along with revealing the horror streaming service Shudder has picked up the exclusive streaming rights for 2021:

Well Go USA Entertainment announced today that the highly anticipated zombie thriller Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula will debut in North American theaters on August 7, 2020. AMC Networks’ genre streaming service Shudder has also come on board for the exclusive North American streaming rights to the Train to Busan sequel and plans to premiere the film on their subscription platform in early 2021. Train to Busan is also set to re-release theatrically across North America starting in July, with an exclusive first look at Peninsula.

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.

The real question, as we continue to battle this pandemic, is whether or not that release date will stick. Even if it does, will you be heading to theaters to see it?
