28 Days Later... (2002)

Danny Boyle’s thrilling film, set in a UK ravaged by a virus, stars Cillian Murphy.

Film details


Twenty-eight days after an infectious virus has decimated the UK, Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes from a coma to find a desolate and ravaged London. Danny Boyle brings the post-apocalyptic capital vividly to life, with iconic scenes of Murphy wandering through an eerily abandoned Westminster and a nail-biting set-piece with a taxi tearing through the Blackwall tunnel.
