A new international trailer has appeared online for the upcoming zombie comedy, Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelsen, Jessie Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin and Amber Heard. It’s not all that different from the first trailer, but it does give us more of a pointed view of things from one of the main character’s perspective.

Zombieland is a comedic-action take on the zombie horror sub-genre. It follows two men – Columbus (Eisenberg), a “big wuss,” and Tallahassee (Harrelsen), an, “AK-toting bad-ass,” – who have managed to survive in a land overrun by zombies. The pair team up with two other survivors, Wichita (Stone) and Little Rock (Breslin), and together they help each other survive in “Zombieland.”

It’s a great premise, and generally it takes a great leaf out of the book of brilliant zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead, in having some fun with a horror monster that has been mostly treated with dead-on (get it?) seriousness. Check out the new international trailer below:

As stated, the main difference between this trailer and the first trailer released for Zombieland is that the international version is narrated by one of the main characters, played by Eisenberg, as opposed to the usually heard “trailer voice.” Although it follows the same formula as the first trailer – explaining what’s going on, adding darkly humorous comments along the way – I think it adds to the tongue-in-cheek nature of the film. The same approach was used (to some extent) in the hilarious Zombieland red band trailer.

Zombieland looks like a helluva lot of fun, mixing what looks like well judged/timed comedy with some quality action/chase sequences, as well as some over-the-top special effects and cameos from a host of familiar (zombiefied) faces. And what a role for Woody Harrelsen! I always knew there was a role perfectly suited to him that he hadn’t quite played yet…

What do you make of the latest (international) trailer for Zombieland? Are you looking forward to this movie?

Zombieland is released on October 9th in the U.S., and on November 27th in the UK, both in 2009.

  1. first, i thought it would be another bad-comedy/horror-movie, but to be honest, it doesnt seem that bad. kinda funny. so i think im gonna watch this when it releases.

  2. Only slightly off-topic….last night before District 9 played, the theatre showed a Zombieland trailer. Odd thing was, it was an edited version of the redband trailer. Why they didn’t just show the regular trailer, I dunno.
    But what they chose to edit out confused me.
    Use if the F-bomb was dropped, and the stripper zombie’s nipple tassles were replaced with a bikini. I think some of the shooting was cut short too.
    But Harrelson calling Eisenberg a b****, reference to “Cockblocking” and the bit with the severed hand giving the finger where kept in, to my surprise.
    Not to sound like a cranky old man, but in my day they’d have cut that stuff too….I don’t really take offence, but it still surprised me that it was kept in the trailer for widespread viewing.

  3. this does look funny. it looks like one of those movies that you can just have fun watching

  4. I actually preferred the other narrator to this one!
