By now you can't have missed the hype on the new Fox Atomic sequel to their hit film 28 Days Later, which sounds like it's a lot better than many people expected it would be.
Their press release states: "The film picks up six months after the Rage virus has decimated the city of London. The U.S. Army has restored order and is repopulating the quarantined city, when a carrier of the Rage virus enters London and unknowingly re-ignites the spread of the deadly infection, wreaking havoc on the entire population."
