The folks at Sony Pictures have sent over a bunch of photos from their work in San Diego promoting their upcoming zom-com Zombieland, including two new production photos and a bunch of photos from around the Con. Allegedly Sony went around town and painted the faces of random Con attendees to make them look like zombies, turning the Avatar-crazed crowd into a mass of walking dead. Needless to say, that’s some pretty cool shit. Kind of like the viral promotion for The Dark Knight last year when they made everyone into clowns. Y’all remember that, right?
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.
Directed by Reuben Fleischer and starring Amber Heard, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, Bill Murray, Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson, Zombieland hits theaters on October 9, 2009. Pictures are below. For more from San Diego, check out our Comic-Con ’09 Homepage.
