When will the Zombieland 2: Double Tap trailer release? The sequel to the cult classic has been rumored for years and was finally confirmed last summer. The core Zombieland cast is set to reprise their roles as the movie is set to hit theaters in October.
The sequel will debut a decade after the first Zombieland was released. In addition to the cast returning, Ruben Fleischer (Venom) is also back to direct. Development on Zombieland: Double Tap moved along quickly, with filming only taking two months to complete. Now that the filming stage is over, when can fans expect the Zombieland 2 trailer to arrive?
Zombieland 2 is set to premiere on October 18, 2019. The first Zombieland movie released a few weeks earlier in the same month, with a trailer hitting four months prior. Based on the timeline used for the first film, the trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap should be expected in late June or early July. The timeline matches with fellow Columbia Pictures film, Once Upton a Time in Hollywood; the first teaser for Tarantino's latest movie released four months before the late July release date.
It's possible that the producers behind Zombieland: Double Tap will hold out a few weeks to show the trailer at San Diego Comic-Con in late July for maximum exposure. After ten long years, fans can surely wait a few more weeks. If that's the case, in contrast to SDCC tradition, the trailer would unlikely be a Hall H exclusive.
The sequel will follow up with the four fan-favorite characters - Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock - as they move to the American heartland. Not much more is known about the plot of Zombieland: Double Tap except for that the group will encounter evolved zombies. We can assume that Columbus has revised his list of rules for surviving the zombie apocalypse, and there's hope Tallahassee found more Twinkies over the past decade (for everyone's sake).
Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin are reprising their original roles but they won't be the only ones along for the ride. Bill Murray will reportedly be back and his Ghostbusters pal, Dan Akroyd, is joining him this time around. Rosario Dawson, Thomas Middleditch, Luke Wilson, Zoey Deutch and Avan Jogia have also been cast in Zombieland 2.
