The sequel to the 2003 horror hit, "28 Days Later."
The creative team of Danny Boyle, Alex Garland, and Andrew Macdonald are back to re-invent the zombie movie yet again with the sequel to "28 Days Later." Lead by director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, "28 Weeks Later" picks up six months after the Rage virus has decimated the city of London. The US Army has restored order and is repopulating the quarantined city, when a carrier of the Rage virus enters London and unknowingly re-ignites the spread of the deadly infection, wreaking havoc on the entire population.
With 28 Weeks Later coming out on DVD on October 9 we wanted to satisfy our users appetite for horror! We have an exclusive clip from this release that will be infecting DVD stores everywhere.
The joy of later seeing his son Andy (Mackintosh Muggleton) and daughter Tammy (Imogen Poots) as repopulation efforts get underway in London is short-lived, however, when an innocent bid to reconnect with the past sets into motion a tragic series of events. Now, just as society struggles to sort through the rubble and rebuild London from the ground up, the virus that nearly destroyed a nation strikes back with a vengeance. Jeremy Renner, Rose Byrne, and Harold Perrineau, Jr. co-star in the frightful sequel, which highlights the dangers of declaring victory in the calm before the storm.Read More

Quarantine. Eradication. Sterilization. Repopulation. The terror and devastation unleashed in the groundbreaking horror masterpiece 28 Days Later picks up six months after the Rage virus has decimated London in 28 Weeks Later, the heart-stopping zombie horror sequel that "surpasses the original" (Dallas Morning News). Months after the deadly outbreak annihilated the British Isles leaving only a handful of survivors, the army declares the war against the infection has been won and the reconstruction of the country slowly begins; but as the first wave of refugees returns, the deadly infection resurfaces without warning, and this time - it is more dangerous than ever!
The 28 Weeks Later DVD features numerous spine-chilling bonus features including over 13 minutes of deleted scenes, three behind-the-scenes featurettes, director commentary plus an exclusive "28 Days Later: The Aftermath" flash-animated segments, based on the new Fox Atomic Comics graphic novel bridging the storyline between the two films. 28 Weeks Later will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada. In addition, Fox Home Entertainment will also release a special 28 Days / Weeks Later Two-Pack Collection featuring both films packaged together at the low price of $34.98 U.S. / $45.98 Canada.Read More
I met up with Juan Carlos in a swanky suite at the famed Essex House. He was a bit overwhelmed with the rigors of a publicity tour, but was resolute in promoting his English language debut. The emergence of Spanish directors has provided Hollywood a much needed shot-in-the-arm. They've added vision and style to the stale studio system. Juan Carlos has the chops, but I sincerely hope that the behemoth that is Spider-man 3 does not chew 28 Weeks Later up at the box office.

But don't think Boyle's just giving up his franchise; he's serving as executive producer, and apparenly very hands with Fresnadillo - but let him shoot the film the way he wanted.
But why make a sequel? Well, let's start with the fact that the original made 10 times its production budget. And two, the fans demanded it! Cilian Murphy made such an impression on the big screen, it had to be done; he walked the desolate streets of London, just trying to find any form of civilization out there. In the follow-up, it's Robert Carlyle who's the main protaginest - from what we saw, he'll also be the one who's going to be saving society again from the nasty virus.Read More
