28 WEEKS LATER, the sequel to the 2003 international smash hit 28 DAYS LATER, picks up six months after the rage virus has annihilated the Mainland Britain. The US army declares that the war against infection has been won, and that the reconstruction of the country can begin. As the first wave of refugees return, a family is reunited - but one of them unwittingly carries a terrible secret. The virus is not yet dead, and this time, it is more dangerous than ever.
Four years after the enormous international success of 28 DAYS LATER, the director/producer/writer team of Danny Boyle, Andrew Macdonald and Alex Garland felt the time was right to make a sequel. 28 DAYS LATER told the story of when the virus was first unleashed following a raid on a primate research facility by animal rights activists. Transmittable in a single drop of blood, the virus locks those infected into a permanent state of murderous rage. Within 28 days the country was overwhelmed and a handful of survivors desperately struggled to salvage a future.
The cast is led by Robert Carlyle (THE FULL MONTY, TRAINSPOTTING); Rose Byrne (SUNSHINE, TROY), Jeremy Renner (THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES); Harold Perrineau (THE MATRIX RELOADED/REVOLUTIONS, LOST); Catherine McCormack (BRAVEHEART, SPY GAME); Imogen Poots (V FOR VENDETTA) and Idris Elba (THE WIRE). Also joining the cast is a talented young newcomer, 12 year-old Mackintosh Muggleton making his feature film debut.
