Trailers for “World War Z” began to appear in the months leading up to the film’s premiere in 2013, thrilling horror aficionados. The film depicts a planet that is rapidly being invaded by a zombie apocalypse. Former UN field agent Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is compelled to return to duty and travels the globe in search of a cure for the virus while his family waits for his safe return.
The film was very different from the book it was based on, Max Brooks’ “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.” The storey is recounted through the eyes of multiple survivors of a worldwide conflict caused by a zombie pandemic. The film, on the other hand, is entirely focused on Lane’s story.
Millions of zombies surge over the walls and cliffs of modern cities, many of which have declared martial law, in this modern marvel of CGI. According to The Telegraph, the movie’s horrific aesthetics helped it become the most costly zombie film ever made.

When the zombies attack, where do you suppose you’ll be? The solution is on a high-speed train from Seoul to Busan, South Korea, for Yeon’s company of strangers. The passengers try to save themselves as the zombie epidemic spreads. “Train To Busan” will fill the vacuum left by “World War Z,” with zombies attacking quicker than you can say “Brad Pitt” and plots (and deaths) that will tug at your emotions.
The zombie apocalypse and martial law are also used to highlight economic gaps between the high and lower classes, since passengers on the train and those they encounter must rely on one another to survive.
The film was South Korea’s first original zombie picture, according to the BBC, and it broke box office records on its opening weekend.
New Line Cinema was rumoured to be in the lead for the rights in 2018, with “Annabelle” screenwriter Gary Dauberman attached to create the American version, according to Deadline. Director Timo Tjahjanto was attached to direct, according to Deadline. After seeing “Train to Busan,” watch the animated prequel and prepare for the American premiere of “Train to Busan 2: Peninsula.”
