Plus a zombie thriller feels just like the escapist entertainment moviegoers would be keen on, staying home due to COVID-19 doesn’t look so bad compared to a zombie outbreak apocalypse. The next zombie film is the bigger, badder, and more high profile Peninsula, premiering next week on July 15th as the long awaited sequel to hit Train to Busan.
