Just when you thought it couldn’t look any more fun, the folks at Sony Pictures go and release an awesome blitz of carnage in the international trailer for Zombieland, the upcoming action comedy from director Ruben Fleischer. Based on this trailer, I’ve learned the following things: (a) having a character named Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) who is a total badass is a good choice, (b) even though he’s playing the same socially awkward wannabe romantic, Jesse Eisenberg is still tonaly perfect for a role like this, and (c) Emma Stone is super cute.
Also, there are zombie kills — plenty of creative and fun zombie kills. You have to love it, especially from a film that does not appear to be taking itself too seriously. I am personally looking forward to seeing this one when it makes its debut at Fantastic Fest here in Austin at the end of September. For the rest of the country, Zombieland is in theaters October 9th. It also stars Abigail Breslin, Amber Heard, Bill Murray and Mike White.
In the horror comedy 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.
