Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.
When Danny Boyle, Alex Garland and Andrew Macdonald first began to consider a sequel to 28 Days Later... (2002), their initial idea was to do 29 Days Later, possibly using the characters of Jim (Cillian Murphy), Selena (Naomie Harris) and Hannah (Megan Burns) from the first film. This idea was dropped in favor of doing a film set within the time-frame of 28 Days Later..., focusing on an SAS team sent into London to retrieve either the Prime Minister or the Queen. Finally, it was suggested to set the film some time after the events of the initial film, and to deal with the impact Rage has had on society in general.

In the surgery scenes, people are only wearing surgical masks. The virus is transferred via blood and body fluids, so everyone in quarantine should have worn goggles, especially the doctor.
Like the first film, there are no opening credits of any kind once the company logos have appeared. Also like the first film, the title of the film appears only as a descriptive subtitle.
