Information about 28 Weeks Later

28 Weeks Later is a 2007 (12 years ago) British post-apocalyptic horror film, and sequel to the 2002 (17 years ago) movie 28 Days Later. The movie was directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and was released in the United Kingdom and in the United States on 11 May 2007 (12 years ago). It was mostly filmed in London, England with some scenes also being filmed in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Plot

Don (Robert Carlyle) and his wife Alice (Catherine McCormack) prepare dinner in the heavily-reinforced cottage they share with four others, somewhere in rural Great Britain. During their meal a boy bangs on the door, begging to be let in. After arguing amongst themselves Don lets the child inside, who says he is from Sandford and has been fleeing his infected parents. Moments later, a pack of the infected attack and enter the house, quickly overwhelming the group. Alice refuses to leave without the boy; Don abandons Alice and escapes in a boat, emerging as the sole survivor.

Over the course of 28 weeks following the original outbreak, the infected have all starved to death, Britain has been declared relatively safe, and re-population has begun.

An American-led NATO force, under the command of Brigadier General Stone (Idris Elba), begins repopulating the country with both old and new residents. The chief medical officer of District 1, Major Scarlet Ross (Rose Byrne), is surprised by the inclusion of adolescents and children, amongst whom are Tammy (Imogen Poots) and Andy (Mackintosh Muggleton), Don and Alice's children who were in Spain during the initial outbreak.

At 12 years old, Andy is the youngest person in Britain, and during their subsequent medical inspection, Scarlet notes Andy's heterochromia, a trait he inherited from his mother. Andy and Tammy are subsequently admitted to District 1, a heavily-reinforced, fully functional section of London on the Isle of Dogs guarded by the United States Army, including a detachment from Delta acting as a rooftop observation team. With them are a sergeant, Doyle (Jeremy Renner), and an observation helicopter pilot, Flynn (Harold Perrineau). The children are reunited with their father Don, who is now head caretaker of the district. Don tearfully recounts his escape to them, saying that Alice was killed by the infected, but states that he witnessed Alice's death to hide the fact that he abandoned her.

The next day the two children slip out of the safe zone to return to their old home, where Andy discovers Alice, disheveled but alive. Andy and Tammy are recaptured by the US Army while Alice is decontaminated. A blood test reveals that she is infected with the Rage virus, but displaying few symptoms, labeling her an asymptomatic carrier, as evidenced by her bloodied eye. Though Scarlet wants to keep Alice alive to seek a possible vaccine or cure, she is overruled by Stone, who wants Alice killed to prevent a possible further outbreak of Rage.

Don visits his children in a holding room, where they confront him about his version of Alice's death. He then makes an unauthorized visit to Alice in her isolation cell, using his caretaker passcard to bypass security, and asks for forgiveness. When they kiss, the Rage virus in her saliva immediately infects Don, who brutally kills her and goes on to attack and infect soldiers in District 1.

The outbreak forces the area into lockdown. All the civilians are quarantined in safe rooms, which Don forces his way into, and begins to infect them. Scarlet manages to rescue Tammy from containment but Andy gets separated from the group. Doyle and the soldiers are initially ordered to shoot the infected, but as the chaos escalates this is upgraded to a "Code Red": a general extermination of the populace. Doyle, unable to bring himself to comply with the order, abandons his post and escapes with Scarlet, the children, and others through an underground tunnel. Stone then orders that District 1 be fire-bombed. Although this causes massive devastation, large numbers of the infected, including Don, escape the bombardment and occupy the city.

Hoping to rendezvous with Flynn's helicopter at the derelict remains of Regent's Park, Scarlet informs Doyle that the children may have the same immunity as their mother, and must thus be protected at all costs. Flynn arrives by helicopter to pick up Doyle, but refuses to take anyone else as they would be shot down if in breach of the Code Red protocol.

Flynn tells Doyle to head to Wembley Stadium but to leave the civilians. Ignoring the latter instruction, Doyle heads to Wembley with the group, breaking into an abandoned car to escape the infected and chemical weapons now being used to blanket the city. In the process of push starting the car, Doyle is killed by soldiers with flamethrowers. Now pursued by an Apache helicopter, Scarlet drives into the London Underground where she and the children continue on foot. Although they are able to navigate using the night sight on Doyle's rifle the group become separated, whereupon Scarlet is ambushed and killed by Don, who has followed them. Don then attacks and bites Andy, but is shot by Tammy before he can kill him. Although now infected with the Rage virus, Andy remains symptom-free like his mother, albeit with a bloodshot eye. The children continue to Wembley Stadium and discover and are picked up by a reluctant Flynn, who flies them across the English Channel to France as previously instructed by Doyle. No one alive but the two children knows that Andy is a carrier of the virus.

Another 28 days pass. Calls for help and people's screams can be heard over the radio of Flynn’s now abandoned helicopter. A swarm of Infected are shown running through a subway exit, toward the Eiffel Tower, revealing the Rage Virus has spread to mainland Europe.

Production

Pre-production

"We were quite taken aback by the phenomenal success of the first film, particularly in America, We saw an opportunity to make a second movie that already had a built in audience. We thought it would be a great idea to try and satisfy that audience again".
— Danny Boyle on 28 Weeks Later.
In 2003 (16 years ago), plans for the movie were conceived after the enormous international success of 28 Days Later. Danny Boyle, Andrew Macdonald and Alex Garland stated that they felt the time was right to make a sequel.

In Mar. 2005 (14 years ago), Boyle said in an interview that he would not direct the sequel due to commitments to Sunshine, but he would serve as executive producer. He also revealed that the movie would revolve around a great deal of the aftermath from the first movie. It was also revealed that the movie would include the "US Army declaring the war against infection had been won, and that the reconstruction of the country could begin." Boyle hired Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to helm the project after seeing Fresnadillo's 2001 (18 years ago) movie Intacto. Fresnadillo stated that he was "thrilled working on his first English language movie alongside such an exciting international cast and talented production team."

Both Fresnadillo and Lopez-Lavigne were involved in writing the script, which revolved around a family and what happened to them in the aftermath of the original film, which the producers "liked a lot".

Casting details

Boyle said in Mar. 2005 (14 years ago) that the sequel would feature a new cast, since previous cast members Cillian Murphy and Naomie Harris were occupied with their own projects. On 23 Aug. 2006 (13 years ago), Jeremy Renner was announced to portray Doyle, one of the principal characters for 28 Weeks Later. On 31 Aug. 2006 (13 years ago), Harold Perrineau was announced to portray a US Special Forces pilot in the film.

Filming

On 1 sep. 2006 (13 years ago), principal photography for 28 Weeks Later began in London with much of the filming taking place at Canary Wharf.

Reception

The movie opened in 2,000 cinemas across the United States.

28 Weeks Later garnered generally positive reviews. View London called the movie an "exciting, action-packed and superbly directed thriller that more than lives up to the original film".

The movie has generated a rating of 71% on Rotten Tomatoes with 98 positive reviews and 42 negative ones. The movie made $9.8 million in its opening weekend, coming in second place at the box office, behind Spider-Man 3.
