A Zombie Horde Gets Locomotive in New Trailer for Cannes Thriller ‘Train to Busan’

Train to Busan

When a zombie virus strikes South Korea, it’s Snowpiercer meets World War Z in the first full-length trailer for director Sang-ho Yeon‘s (The Fake, The King of Pigs) next feature Train to Busan. The trailer is in Korean with no English subtitles, but between the clear conceit, good visual language, and solid cutting, the message comes across loud and clear. Starring Yoo Gong, Sohee, and Dong-seok Ma, the film screened at Cannes to mostly positive reviews.

Screen Daily said in their review, “Although it lacks the layers evident in Yeon’s acclaimed animations (including the thematically-linked Seoul Station), this is still an entertaining ride, as well as providing political commentary when it overtly references the Korean government’s response to the MERS virus alongside commenting on the country’s class system.”

See the trailer below with a hat tip to CineMaldito, along with a poster.

While a zombie-virus breaks out in South Korea, a couple of passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.
