In mid-June we got our very first real look at the upcoming genre-improving Zombie film, Zombieland, through its first trailer and it looked awesome!
Building on the fun of that trailer and positive buzz online, the director and stars of Zombieland put on a successful and enjoyable panel at San Diego Comic-Con where those of us in attendance were treated to a brand new trailer and several great clips for the movie. All of what we saw was much more gruesome and much more entertaining compared to the edited-for-all-audiences trailer that came out earlier.
Today, we have for you the brand new Red Band trailer for Zombieland which, from what I remember, is the same as what we saw at the Comic-Con presentation. Check it out (if you’re of age):
I can’t say it enough – this movie looks perfect for what it is. From the trailers, it’s doing everything right, from the characters to the style, to the cinematography and sweet (and at the same time, hilarious) special effects. This movie should be a blast and I’m looking forward to it.
You probably figured out a lot of this from the trailer, but here’s a synopsis for the movie:
Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus is a big wuss — but when you’re afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee is an AK-toting, zombie-slaying’ bad ass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita and Little Rock, who have also found unique ways to survive the zombie mayhem, they will have to determine which is worse: relying on each other or succumbing to the zombies.
This comedic zombie-fest is directed by Ruben Fleischer and stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin. There’s also rumors abound that there may be some other star appearances in the film including a possible cameo by Bill Murray whom they could not confirm or deny being involved when asked about it in the Q&A segment of the Comic-Con panel.
Does this latest trailer sell you on the movie?
Zombieland opens October 9, 2009 and I’ll be there!
