The sequel to 2016’s South Korean zombie film Train to Busan has just received a second trailer, showcasing the new world four years following the release of an undead virus. Although the original Peninsula trailer debuted a lot of visuals, this new trailer ups the ante by revealing some new plot details.

The undead has taken over the globe and cities are crumbled hives for the zombies to live. However, a group of survivors explores the city on a mission to retrieve a stash of money. The film clearly appears to lean further into its action influences than its horror, a transition akin to Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. There is even a scene in the footage above that alludes to the latter film.

According to the official synopsis for Peninsula : “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.”

Peninsula, officially titled Train to Busan Presents Peninsula, is set to release in the United States by Well Go USA, and although it doesn’t have a release date, many speculate the film will arrive later this year. The film will also be directed by Yeon Sang-Ho, who helmed the original movie.

Train to Busan stands as one of the most successful movies ever released in South Korea and grossed over $1.2 million USD at the U.S. box office.

In other entertainment news, James Bond’s No Time to Die has a new release date.
