Danny Boyle is Considering 28 Weeks Later Sequel

592 Comments

Danny Boyle’s zombies (I think he’s since gave in to calling them zombies now) came, saw, and ate heartedly in “28 Days Later”, and they did likewise in “28 Weeks Later”. And now, Danny Boyle is considering returning to the land of the dead in a sequel to “Weeks”, or so one would assume in this interview with SlashFilm. I had always intended to see “28 Weeks Later”, but for one reason or another, never got around to it. (I’ll probably catch it on DVD.) At the end of the film, it was shown that the infection had escaped Britain, and was now poised to munch on the French and most of Europe. That was where a second sequel (third installment in the franchise) would take place if one should be made, which in itself is in doubt considering the lackluster box office of “Weeks”.

Here’s what Boyle said about his ideas for a third installment:

“I’ve got an idea for it. I didn’t think I would have, because I didn’t want to do the second one. I did do some second unit shooting for them one weekend, just to get myself out of the cutting room. It’s been so long doing this film [Sunshine],” said Boyle. “And I really enjoyed it, doing something trashy like Zombies killing people. That’s basically what I shot all weekend and I was like “˜WOW, this is great! You just come in and kill him! That’s what we’re going to shoot today.”

Instead of continuing the story in Europe, Boyle is eyeing Russia.

“It’s to do with Russia actually. It’s to do with that part of the world. NOT FRANCE. The second film hints that it gets to France eventually, and wipes out the French. But this third idea is actually more to do with Russia, but that’s actually all I can say,” said Boyle. “I don’t know whether it will happen.”

Again, there’s no guarantee that a third installment will even be considered, considering how poorly “28 Weeks Later” did. But if Boyle was willing to lower the budget, and maybe even go back to the budget he had with the original, then whose to say a third couldn’t be made at a decent price?

(And what would they call it, anyway? “28 Months Later”? That would seem appropriate, but then again, we know how wacky the “I Know What You Did Last Summer” sequels have gotten because of people trying to be too clever by a half with the titles…)

    I just watched 28 Weeks Later and loved it. I am actually looking forward to another installment in the series. I guess they will call it 28 Months Later.

    • zane kaften

      everyone wonders what happened at the end well i will tell you. That little boy weird eyes caused the infection in France when he sneezed on his sister causing her to become infected.She then riped out the little boys neck and the blood splatter from that infected the pilot causing him to lose control of the plane and crashing in France. the boy died and the other two quickly began spreading the infection two the onlookers and emergency personnel that responded two the crash.everyone from 28 weeks is dead and should not make it to the next installment.
      good riddance!!!!!

      • Bridgette

        Where did you see this? Is it in a deleted scene or fan fiction? I remember the helicopter flyin over the water and then seeing it on land with blood everywhere and the movie closes with a man with a french accent. I believe for the For Dad was written on a pic of the pilots family. I am intrigued by your observation and believe it to be true, I would just like to watch it myself. Thanks .

        • stranger

          I’m pretty sure he used that thing called logical deduction.

          • Israel

            I found 28 weeks later to be an ok movie. Besides its average horror scenes, and its overuse of gore and zombies blood it had MAJOR questions to answer to! such as:

            1- I realize that the father had an “anywhere pass,” but who leaves a freaking possible zombie unguarded???
            2-So the Father escapes why didnt the first soldier he attacked (who had a gun? and who saw a guy with blood dripping from his mouth shoot him in the head) BANG! infection contained! :)
            3-when they quarenteed the people in the garage with all thier procedures for lockdown, who the hell forgot to lock the back door?
            4-When the scientist and kids are escaping why decide to go to the deepest darkes tunnel where you cant see and zombies are likely to be around every other corner? It would seem more logical to try and baracade yourself in a grocery store and raid a gun store while your at it!
            5-And how the hell did the helocopter just fly out of a biological hot zone with out being shot down or atleast escorted?

            The show as your normal slash and horror movie was ok but huge questions of “what they hell are they thinking” and a military organization that resembles seasame street make me give this movie a 2 1/2 stars! (still havent watched 28 days later hope its a better instalment!)

        • http://beyondhollywood.com bob mathis

          fuck yeah i hope there is another on hell ill sell my house to help pay for that . i love these movies i always put my self inside the movie and feel the movie i no its weird but i love thses movies so much .i wish he would do another one.some of these movies are not for some people jsut as people like action are romance i love horror and watch the same ones over and over again my girl gets sooooo pissed so i watch them when she is sleeping .

          • weeksLover

            I agree, i do not understand why the critics did not love 28 weeks later as much as 28 days later. I slept with my lights on for 2 weeks after watching the sequel and I still love the movie! It is the scariest movie I have ever seen since the exorcist. I love it! I DVRed 28 weeks later yesterday. I hope they do another weeks movie- AND PLEASE NO STRAIGHT TO DVD! SCREW THE CRITICS AND MAKE IT A BIG BUDGET FILM. I HAVE NOT HEARD ONE PERSON SAY THEY HATED 28 WEEKS LATER!

          • stranger

            To Israel the films set in London u moron theres not gonna be a gun sop britain has some of the tightest gun control laws in the world

      • Will

        Did anyone consider that both contries are conected by a tunnel……….hmmmm…makes a little sense doesn’t it. The boy whom is infected at the end is like his mother “a carrier”, but does not attack as her body prevents “the rage” from surfacing. Would it not be more likely that all three from the final scene or at least the boy survive said French destruction as a plot line to find the weakness of “the rage” and cure infection and close the franchise (possibly in Russia?!?) before it gets beats itself to death in a rage…………..just for foot note, am actually a massive fan of both 28’s just think three is a good number! And please lets not look too deep into the plots guys, its a horror flick ;)

        • cindell

          It’s unlikely that Andy would survive the entire thing, though he is able to keep from losing control and attacking people, he’s carrying the virus and it’s only a matter of time before he effects people around him.. and then the chances of continually escaping larger, faster infected is quite slim.

      • Superstar

        Well will, in this artle and many other articles, Danny Boyle says he is thinking about doing a sequel to “28 Weeks Later” which he says “it has something to do with Russia actually”.

        But maybe he will change his mind.

      • jrod1620

        i believe that zane kaften is a fucking moron and should never become a critic you suck at criticizing movies and you just suck at life think you need to watch it again buddy

      • Ghostrider537

        zane kaften,
        You smoke pot? You see some other movie or something? Or you just want to get a reaction out of these folks? None of the scenes you described, kid, are in 28 Weeks Later or 28 Days Later. That is all…

        • cindell

          I dont think he was implying that what he described ever took place, but rather that that is what one would logically deduce based upon the evidence presented in the movie. Like his mother, Andy is a carrier. Any contact with his saliva or other bodily fluids will infect those around him.. Zane’s description of what happened is likely, though we’ll have to see the 3rd installment to know for sure! & I certainly hope there is a third installment. Everyone I know, who’s seen the movies loves them. Whenever they’re mentioned it leads to crazy planning about how we would survive a zombie apocalypse.

          The infected in this movie are most certainly the most realistic and utterly terrifying “zombies” I have ever seen in a horror film. I’ve never been afraid to be alone in my house after watching a horror movie, but after 28 Days and 28 Weeks, I couldn’t help but imagine a group of zombies with read eyes, bloody froth around their mouths, and the creepiest gutteral sounds of all time breaking through my picture window to beat me to death and rip my throat out.

          • Larry Saini

            That’s because their not zombies. Their infection “rage” was originally injected in live humans 28 days later. In my opinion is better than sequel. I am a huge Romero fan, seen i think all his “dead” films. They were zombies, the dead rising and eating the living and/or infecting the living. Which the dead infection kills your heart, in turn killing you, then your “dead” infection makes your body rise. The 28 days later infection “rage”, made the humans so blindly enraged. They most likely ripped their own skin off in a “blind rage” making them look they way they do in 28 Days and/or Weeks Later.

      • quarantine soilder

        uh,the infection spread because of the outbreak in great britain,the helicopter did not crash and they are still alive.

      • jimmy

        shut up,
        asshole x

    • Rager

      They will call it: “28 days earlier”

    • IanD

      I believe 28 days later and 28 weeks later were the best version of zombie genre i have ever seen. Most zombie movies do not have a good storyline and are scenes of slow moving zombies(rather boring). I think you should either create a sequel of 28 weeks later, or to recreate a new zombie storyline. The second was not as good do to the storyline and lack of encounters with the infected but could easily be made into something more.

      • Cptn. Sweetpants

        I totally agree with you. I like how they got away from the idea of living dead and replaced it with a virus that makes some sense. I’m not a big fan of zombie movies. Most of them contain a bunch of slow dead mofo’s walking around trying to eat people, and a group of 5 guys killing them by the thousands. 28 days/weeks both share an excellent and well thought out story line, and in my opinion they should and could do another installment. Got Boyle!

      • Larry Saini

        Again they are not zombies, zombies is the dead walking. That’s why zombies don’t run, their dead. In 28 days later (the original) they are something else. BTW the 200? the so called remake of Dawn of the Dead was insult to Dead/Zombie genre.

    • BANE76

      Stop shaking the damn camera on this next film! Jesus! Can’t see anything.

      • Steve

        Well then you must not have any eyes at all. I’ve seen both movies SEVERAL times and i’ve never had, nor heard of any one else, having problems seeing the movie.

        Get better glasses pal

    • Just a fan.

      Loved both movies, and personally I liked 28 weeks later more. It was less suspenseful I will admit, half the movie was just gore and violence, but that’s what made it DIFFERENT from the first one and great! Since they were ‘infected’ and not ‘zombies’, they could actually RUN full speed non stop… unlike zombies where they… walk as slow as a snail moves? And as I said before, since they were ‘infected’ they were still HUMAN, which means stalking (reference to Don stalking Andy and Tammy) can be involved which makes these ‘infected’ people WAY more fearful than regular, ordinary, mindless zombies.

      The beginning of the movie to me, is probably the best scene. Just the way how as a survivor, you will do ANYTHING to get away, including ditching your wife and others (I know he didn’t intend to ditch his wife, because if he didn’t, he would be dead). For me, those first 10 minutes were already worth my pay to watch the movie.

      Already on IMDB.com they made a page for “28 Months Later” indicating a sequel, but the release date is currently set at 2011. I cant wait for “28 Months Later”, I just hope they don’t screw it up with that big of a time gap. I mean, it’s basically 2 years and 4 months later…

    • JuJuBee

      I LOVED both 28 weeks and 28 Days, I have been waiting for the 3rd installment since Weeks ended. I think the slight political and social commentary in the film really captured what was happening in the US at that time and what happens when the authority figures lose control. It honestly depicted, even though a bit one dimensional, who people really are when it comes down to it, what actions one takes when it is a matter of life and death, who you really are when put to the test. The “28’s” are true to what the 1970’s zombie fascination represented and I think we need more films that remind us of the human condition and challenge ideas on the way our world runs.

    • Rude

      Well, I love both of the 28 Later movies. I’d like to see a 3rd one, and I hope they keep it lower budget like 28 Days Later. One thing I didn’t like about 28 Weeks Later is they made the dad seem like a smarter version of Rage victims. He hid in an alley as they fire bombed the city, come on, would a Rage victim know to do that?
      He also hunted down his family and actually seemed like he knew them, a Rage victim wouldn’t do that either. I just think it’s better with lesser known actors as well, like the first one. Other than the big guy from Braveheart (played the girl’s Dad), I’d never seen any of them before. Just keep the 3rd low budget with a few people fighting for their lives. Keep the fantastic weapons out of it too, nothing bigger than assault rifles.

      • Larry Saini

        Not a big name, Brendan Gleason. You don’t recognize his last name, guess who is father was.

    • nathan

      Yea call it “21 months later” or “Another 28 Days later”

    • Israel

      I found 28 weeks later to be an ok movie. Besides its average horror scenes, and its overuse of gore and zombies blood it had MAJOR questions to answer to! such as:

      • leetstik

        1. that is a major fail, but remember, these are members of the US military.
        2. same as above
        3. they were trying to get through the channel tunnel because they were idiots and they thought no one would see them.
        4. by the time the helicopter was flying away everything else had gone to complete shit.

        It’s all a bit suspect really, but a sequel could be wild and outrageous.

            Dude I’ll give you why wasn’t the women being guarded, that’s a fair point, although unless you’ve actually been in a gunrush situation you surely cannot know the feeling, the soldier may have been hesitant with fear or any number of emotional entanglement, not to mention that Robert Carlisle then rushes him. We don’t have gun stores in England, thus why the yanks shoot more people than us, another point is that the back door in the garage was actually chained closed but the door and chains are broken through, also the chopper they fly is an evac area, thus there’s nobody else left bar a few soldiers and a pilot in the general area, they wouldn’t think for a second that the chopper was being flown by an infected person, not to mention that the child wasn’t infected but a carrier, thus he’s immune and the adult with the kids is blissfully unaware of this, also who would escort them in the midst of an epicdemic warzone?. Don’t get me wrong 28 weeks could’ve been done better but the continuity flaws you’ve mentioned are irrelevent to the wankness of the film.

            well first retard no one in britian can own a gun not even a police man so no gun shop learn your facts first tard. and second its a movie so there will be things left unlocked duh

          • Mrxerohfayte

            There is loads of “fucking” gun shops in Britain, maybe not “high-street” shops but the thing you are on now, the “internet”, has loads of gun shops based in Britain. Not only that there is loads of gun clubs in Britain which sell guns. If you got the license, you can buy the gun – same in America but America is a bit more lenient to the laws of guns, but that’s America they’re generally more lazy – it’s a trait & not they’re fault so deal with it.

          • Rachel

            come on guys, you can watch any movie in the world and pick out everthing that doesnt seem to fit, if all of those things DIDNT happen, then the movie would be over. duh? the movie was awesome, i have a very big love for zombie movies, and this one really captures my attention because there NOT just zombies, there infected with rage, it makes everything more slasher then the traditional “zombie movie” i would LOVE to see a sequel to 28 weeks later, because if Boyle dosent, someone else will easily steal these ideas of the bettr age zombie slashers.

            You do realize this is a movie, that has a storyline. As storylines are created to
            Satisfy people with a good story, they add action thrill an suspense for greater entertainment. If they made movies to be completely logical and to have them “barricade a grocery store” and actually watch them stay in that grocery store would be the most boring movie ever. And those things you think are stupid add to the movie building it up, if they didn’t go into a dark tunnel, then where is the entertainment? If you like logical things then go watch a fucking documentary over boring things like elephants and penguins. And this isn’t what you’d call a slasher film. A slasher film is more in the likes of Halloween my bloody valentine Jason and Freddy. Those are slasher. This Is an epidemic/ Infection end of the world type of film. You obviously have no Taste for entertainment, you have have no idea what your talking about, you’d probably have no idea how to create a good plot and storyline and create a successful movie that people would actually be entertained by.

          It’s unlikely that Andy would survive the entire thing, though he is able to keep from losing control and attacking people, he’s carrying the virus and it’s only a matter of time before he effects people around him.. and then the chances of continually escaping larger, faster infected is quite slim.

          • Jessica

            He wouldn’t attack anyone. He’s just the carrier to the virus, so he’s immune to the “rage”

            Also, We know for sure that the Pilot and his sister are dead (maybe) Andy could possibly be alive, but if Danny Boyle is going to make the 3rd installment in Russia. He’ll probably not even consider adding in Andy. So that would leave him dead. lol

          • informed_user

            assuming that this movie logic follows a very basic understanding of genetics, since Andy is a carrier, by definition, he has the mutated gene which is expressed as “rage” in the infected, but since he’s only a carrier, the gene is not expressed in himself

        • Jessica

          But it’s more than a silly horror film! Animal activist made the mistake in saving monkeys! which proves to other people that it isn’t really a zombie film, because the virus came from an animal not a human. Though I’ve been writing a fan fiction of the origins of which the virus came from. it’s awesome, but I lost it in my room somewhere. :-(

          • Rachel

            she is actually right, yes this i considered a zombie film, but its not a virus that “turns people into a zombie” its the rage virus. it causes intense rage, not so much bringing the dead back to life. go watch the first one again?

          • Fernandez982

            but its not a zombie film dumbass. those infected never died. thus they didnt come back from the dead. they are infected with a virus that drives them mad, not turns them to zombies. thats why you dont have to shoot them in the head to kill them. RETARD!!!

          Would not blowing up the tunnel be the first thing France would do to stop the infection from coming into its country? If Europe was infected would not America have more concerns with stopping the spread of the virus across Europe, Russia, and Asia? If the rest of the world was fighting the infected, America would not be wasting its time and resources putting displaced refuges bike in England.

          • Jarpeddy 13

            LOL, you’d think that would be the logical thing to do, but then again they are French ;)

      • Superstar

        Well will, in this artle and many other articles, Danny Boyle says he is thinking about doing a sequel to “28 Weeks Later” which he says “it has something to do with Russia actually”.

        But maybe he will change his mind.

      • jrod1620

        i believe that zane kaften is a fucking moron and should never become a critic you suck at criticizing movies and you just suck at life think you need to watch it again buddy

        • Zane_Kaften

          Grow up jrod1620 theirs no reason to call people names and stop slandering me when you’re hiding behind a mask of anonymity! You do not know me.. My observation was my opinion of what happened and was derived from logical deduction. We know that it was the same helicopter they escaped in because of the photograph that was in it. So the question is why did the chopper crash? To answer that conundrum we must look at the facts.
          First the pilot was an excellent pilot exhibited through the maneuvers he preformed through the movie so the crash was not caused by incompetence. Furthermore it was not caused by the lack of fuel because the crash happened in Paris and if it where running out of fuel he would simply have landed the chopper. Another piece of evidence is the fact that there was blood splattered all over the in side of the plane so it would not be a big stretch of the imagination to assume that something violent had happened inside the chopper.
          We know the characters cared for each other so we can rule out hate crimes, robbery, or any of the factors that motivate people to commit acts of violence open each other. We know the boy was already infected like his mom, and like his mom he had a genetic predisposition of immunity to the more horrifying symptoms of the rage virus. Witch leads us to the conclusion that someone on board other then the boy got infected. Now I thought it would be more likely for the girl to become infected because she and the boy was close brother and sisters and would be more incline to be sharing the same space i.e. a hug or one leaning on the other for emotional support.
          In light of the fact that the mother infected the dad with a single kiss so we know it can be transfer by means of saliva. , and I’m not saying that they were making out or anything that would just be sick, I don’t that it would be that unlikely to assume a simple sneeze from the boy could cause infection. People get sick with the flu all the time from sneezes as well as kisses. We have seen the devastation from the infected in all sorts of places that are larger than the inside of helicopter. And if anyone inside of one got infected odds are it would have dire consequences.
          Nether the boy or girl could fly the chopper if the pilot was put out of commission. So whether it was the man or girl that got infected first is of no consequence. If she got infected the pilot could not fight her off and fly the chopper at the same time, and if the pilot got infected they could not fight him off and fly it anyways.
          In “28 Days Later” Salina stated that there were reports of infection in Paris and New York, but the soldier, who was executed when Jim escaped over the fence, was convinced that England was quarantined and that the reports of the world being infected were false. Like he said what would do with a diseased little island. If America had infection in New York and the infection spreads as quickly as we are led to believe, America would not have the resources or motivation to combat the infection in any place other than America. With this said I am inclined to agree with the soldier that the reports were false and the first introduction of the rage virus from England to the outside world happens at the end of “28 Weeks Later” and was caused by the infected inside the helicopter crash.
          In conclusion I stand by my earlier analysis of the situation that transpired, and encourage you to think critically and see if you come up with the same conclusion that I have reached.

      • Ghostrider537

        zane kaften,
        You smoke pot? You see some other movie or something? Or you just want to get a reaction out of these folks? None of the scenes you described, kid, are in 28 Weeks Later or 28 Days Later. That is all…

        • cindell

          I dont think he was implying that what he described ever took place, but rather that that is what one would logically deduce based upon the evidence presented in the movie. Like his mother, Andy is a carrier. Any contact with his saliva or other bodily fluids will infect those around him.. Zane’s description of what happened is likely, though we’ll have to see the 3rd installment to know for sure! & I certainly hope there is a third installment. Everyone I know, who’s seen the movies loves them. Whenever they’re mentioned it leads to crazy planning about how we would survive a zombie apocalypse.

          The infected in this movie are most certainly the most realistic and utterly terrifying “zombies” I have ever seen in a horror film. I’ve never been afraid to be alone in my house after watching a horror movie, but after 28 Days and 28 Weeks, I couldn’t help but imagine a group of zombies with read eyes, bloody froth around their mouths, and the creepiest gutteral sounds of all time breaking through my picture window to beat me to death and rip my throat out.

          • Larry Saini

            That’s because their not zombies. Their infection “rage” was originally injected in live humans 28 days later. In my opinion is better than sequel. I am a huge Romero fan, seen i think all his “dead” films. They were zombies, the dead rising and eating the living and/or infecting the living. Which the dead infection kills your heart, in turn killing you, then your “dead” infection makes your body rise. The 28 days later infection “rage”, made the humans so blindly enraged. They most likely ripped their own skin off in a “blind rage” making them look they way they do in 28 Days and/or Weeks Later.

          • Jessica

            I consider the virus to be more like rabies than zombie like symptoms.

            People with rabies that pass on more rabies. LOL makes sense doesn’t it?

          • BoxerBlake

            I agree. It definitely reflects a rabies-like infection especially considering the “Infected” don’t actually eat their victims, as is the case with most zombie lore.

        uh,the infection spread because of the outbreak in great britain,the helicopter did not crash and they are still alive.

        • Jessica

          It did crash, at the end of the film it shows the picture of the pilots little boy or drawing he made for his dad. The pilot looked at it in the middle of the film.

      • Jessica

        You never see the girl sneeze or anything of the sort. The virus isn’t airborne, if it was the mother would have passed it on when she came in contact with the people after being cleaned/examined/ other things. It doesn’t really make sense to why and how the little boy passed it on. Maybe they shared a drink, Who knows. The producers were clever to take from the Original film which they have stated Salina in 28 days later said to Jim when they first met “The infected have already hit France and New York” I didn’t even notice this until I re watched the film and re watched the 2nd. It’s a shame that they’ve killed everyone off. I want them to bring back JIM!!

        • Niglet

          I AGREE WITH JESSICA JIM IS AWESOME

        • Fernandez982

          i want them to bring back jim to. i thought he was a great character but i dont think the infection was anywhere else but england till the end of the second one. if it was in new york they wouldve been to busy fighting it there to help rebuild england. and the second one doesnt take place that much later from the first.

    • Rager

      They will call it: “28 days earlier”

    • IanD

      I believe 28 days later and 28 weeks later were the best version of zombie genre i have ever seen. Most zombie movies do not have a good storyline and are scenes of slow moving zombies(rather boring). I think you should either create a sequel of 28 weeks later, or to recreate a new zombie storyline. The second was not as good do to the storyline and lack of encounters with the infected but could easily be made into something more.

      • Cptn. Sweetpants

        I totally agree with you. I like how they got away from the idea of living dead and replaced it with a virus that makes some sense. I’m not a big fan of zombie movies. Most of them contain a bunch of slow dead mofo’s walking around trying to eat people, and a group of 5 guys killing them by the thousands. 28 days/weeks both share an excellent and well thought out story line, and in my opinion they should and could do another installment. Got Boyle!

      • Larry Saini

        Again they are not zombies, zombies is the dead walking. That’s why zombies don’t run, their dead. In 28 days later (the original) they are something else. BTW the 200? the so called remake of Dawn of the Dead was insult to Dead/Zombie genre.

    • BANE76

      Stop shaking the damn camera on this next film! Jesus! Can’t see anything.

      • Steve

        Well then you must not have any eyes at all. I’ve seen both movies SEVERAL times and i’ve never had, nor heard of any one else, having problems seeing the movie.

        Get better glasses pal

    • Just a fan.

      Loved both movies, and personally I liked 28 weeks later more. It was less suspenseful I will admit, half the movie was just gore and violence, but that’s what made it DIFFERENT from the first one and great! Since they were ‘infected’ and not ‘zombies’, they could actually RUN full speed non stop… unlike zombies where they… walk as slow as a snail moves? And as I said before, since they were ‘infected’ they were still HUMAN, which means stalking (reference to Don stalking Andy and Tammy) can be involved which makes these ‘infected’ people WAY more fearful than regular, ordinary, mindless zombies.

      The beginning of the movie to me, is probably the best scene. Just the way how as a survivor, you will do ANYTHING to get away, including ditching your wife and others (I know he didn’t intend to ditch his wife, because if he didn’t, he would be dead). For me, those first 10 minutes were already worth my pay to watch the movie.

      Already on IMDB.com they made a page for “28 Months Later” indicating a sequel, but the release date is currently set at 2011. I cant wait for “28 Months Later”, I just hope they don’t screw it up with that big of a time gap. I mean, it’s basically 2 years and 4 months later…

    • JuJuBee

      I LOVED both 28 weeks and 28 Days, I have been waiting for the 3rd installment since Weeks ended. I think the slight political and social commentary in the film really captured what was happening in the US at that time and what happens when the authority figures lose control. It honestly depicted, even though a bit one dimensional, who people really are when it comes down to it, what actions one takes when it is a matter of life and death, who you really are when put to the test. The “28’s” are true to what the 1970’s zombie fascination represented and I think we need more films that remind us of the human condition and challenge ideas on the way our world runs.

    • Rude

      Well, I love both of the 28 Later movies. I’d like to see a 3rd one, and I hope they keep it lower budget like 28 Days Later. One thing I didn’t like about 28 Weeks Later is they made the dad seem like a smarter version of Rage victims. He hid in an alley as they fire bombed the city, come on, would a Rage victim know to do that?
      He also hunted down his family and actually seemed like he knew them, a Rage victim wouldn’t do that either. I just think it’s better with lesser known actors as well, like the first one. Other than the big guy from Braveheart (played the girl’s Dad), I’d never seen any of them before. Just keep the 3rd low budget with a few people fighting for their lives. Keep the fantastic weapons out of it too, nothing bigger than assault rifles.

      • Larry Saini

        Not a big name, Brendan Gleason. You don’t recognize his last name, guess who is father was.

    • nathan

      Yea call it “21 months later” or “Another 28 Days later”

    • Israel

      I found 28 weeks later to be an ok movie. Besides its average horror scenes, and its overuse of gore and zombies blood it had MAJOR questions to answer to! such as:

      1- I realize that the father had an “anywhere pass,” but who leaves a freaking possible zombie unguarded???
      2-when they quarenteed the people in the garage with all thier procedures for lockdown, who the hell forgot to lock the back door?
      3-When the scientist and kids are escaping why decide to go to the deepest darkes tunnel where you cant see and zombies are likely to be around every other corner? It would seem more logical to try and baracade yourself in a grocery store and raid a gun store while your at it!
      4-And how the hell did the helocopter just fly out of a biological hot zone with out being shot down or atleast escorted?

      The show as your normal slash and horror movie was ok but huge questions of “what they hell are they thinking” and a military organization that resembles seasame street make me give this movie a 2 1/2 stars! (still havent watched 28 days later hope its a better instalment!)

      • leetstik

        1. that is a major fail, but remember, these are members of the US military.
        2. same as above
        3. they were trying to get through the channel tunnel because they were idiots and they thought no one would see them.
        4. by the time the helicopter was flying away everything else had gone to complete shit.

        It’s all a bit suspect really, but a sequel could be wild and outrageous.

      • Fenandez982

        1- she was bound to the bed and the door was locked. how could they have known that the caretakers wife, out of all ppl, comes back alive?
        2- the door was locked. thats why it took him a couple tries to open it.
        3- it was the closest path of escape. remember, they didnt have much time.
        4- because the military was a little busy trying to contain the spread of infection.

    If Boyle WERE to make a sequel to 28 weeks later, Andy and Tammy should have a part in it. I mean the kid has the ”immunity” to the Rage virus ( They’re not zombies in my book ), his blood holds the answer to it, you can’t just leave him out of the picture. They could call it 28 days after 28 weeks…later :P
    Of course seeing Jim returns would be great, but there’s more stories to be told too.
    OR why not make one that starts it all. Before 28 days later, while Jim in his coma. I dunno, why not make one with Mark ( I think that was his name ( guy with Selena ))
    Anyway, can’t wait to hear more about the sequel. Excellent movies and work! 2 Thumbs up ;)
