In one of the most memorable and harrowing zombie horror-thrillers of the last decade, a group of terrified passengers fight their way through a country-wide viral outbreak while trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train to Busan. The southern resort city has managed to hold off the zombie hordes, or so everyone hopes - but it won't matter if no one makes it there alive.
Train to Busan, directed by Yeon Sang-ho and starring Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi, and Ma Dong-seok, premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and later set box office records as the year's first Korean film to surpass 10 million theatergoers. The film also won major accolades, including for technical achievement at the Blue Dragon Film Awards and Best New Director at the BaekSang Arts Awards.
In Korean with English subtitles, 118 minutes. For mature audiences.
