Both Train To Busan and Peninsula are confirmed for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release in the UK this May: more here.

One of my very favourite films of the last decade has been confirmed, at last, for a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray physical media release in the UK.

That film is the stunning Train To Busan, the 2016 South Korean zombie horror film. Directed by Yeon Sang-ho, it’s proof too that genre films can come with a terrific emotional wallop as well.

The film has already debuted on the 4K UHD format elsewhere in the world, but Studiocanal is now doing the honours for us here in the UK.

The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray of Train To Busan has been put up for order, with a release date of 27th May. You can find more information on it, and order a copy, right here.

Extras on the release include a making of piece, and some promo stuff for the anime prequel Seoul Station.

But! There’s more!

On the same day, Studiocanal is also released on 4K disc too Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula. This wasn’t quite as well received but is still well worth eyeball time. It’s set four years after the original film, and it’s not quite so much a direct sequel, more a kind of follow-on story with different characters.

The 4K disc of Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula is being listed here. As always, you can find out more on it, and order yourself a copy, by clicking here.

There’s no listing thus far of extra features for Peninsula, but given that it comes with a Blu-ray in the box too, it’s fair to guess that previous supplements will be carried over.

One last thing: I’m currently the host of the Studiocanal Presents… podcast too, and we did an episode there on the Train To Busan films. If you’re so inclined, you can listen to it right here
