28 WEEKS LATER
Weeks Later (2007)
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.
That original director Danny Boyle didn't bother with
directing this sequel (instead he did Sunshine)
isn't a good sign. That the American army is thrown into the mix can only
mean that the producers have their eye on the lucrative American box
office and that ultimately 28 Weeks Later (unlike its predecessor)
may just be yet another soulless horror movie sequel . . . we'll see.
