28 weeks ( 28 Weeks Later ) is a movie Hispano – British of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo , released in 2007 , which is the result of 28 days .
Some time after the beginning of the epidemic seen in the previous film , almost the entire population of the United Kingdom was contaminated by the ” rabies virus 1 “.

Around the film
- In , Fox Atomic Comics and HarperCollins announced plans to publish in spring 2007 , a comic titled 28 Days Later: The Aftermath . This is to allow the link between the first two components, namely 28 days later and 28 weeks later .
- A first trailer, presented by director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo , was shown at The Carnivals of Lost Souls , a virtual event prepared by Fox Atomic during Halloween 2006 .
- The Wembley Stadium , which opened less than two months before the film’s release, it appears that although abandoned, completely built. However, its effective construction began only from 2003 , after the supposed beginning of the contamination according to the chronology of the two opuses.
Plans for a third part
In 2007, after the release of the film, the rumor of a third component (fueled by the end of the second suspended ) appears. Danny Boyle confirms the rumor by announcing that the idea of a scenario of a sequel exists without specifying additional detail 4 .
In October 2010, at the 127-hour release , producer and screenwriter Alex Garland , now director with Ex machina , announces that the rights of the film are shared between two groups that are in conflict and, as it stands a result is not possible 5 , Boyle says while it will indeed be the director of the possible sequel, whose title will be 28 months later 6 .
In April 2013, when promoting Trance , Alex Garland suggests that with Danny Boyle they had again looked at the project and had raised “an idea” to start the film.
In January 2015, Garland confirms a commitment to deliver the third installment, eight years after the second, with Danny Boyle and producer Andrew Macdonald 7 .
Nearly eleven years after the release of the second part, no official confirmation of the launch of this project has been announced.
