Hey remember a few months ago when Woody Harrelson attacked a TMZ photographer and claimed he thought he was a zombie? It’s because he had just finished shooting this movie: Ruben Fleischer’s Zombieland. The first trailer has just hit the web, and if you’re sick of zombies, well, you’re probably going to hate this!
The thing that sets Zombieland apart, I suppose, is that it is a dark comedy somewhat in the vein of Shaun of the Dead or Fido. The cast also includes Jesse Eisenberg (The Squid and the Whale, Adventureland), Emma Stone (Superbad, The Rocker) and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), and (apparently) Bill Murray as a zombie? Consider me intrigued. I liked the humour in the trailer, but for the most part it was just a lot of shooting zombies. It’s still kind of hard to tell what it’s all about. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick previously worked as writers for the The Joe Schmo Show, which doesn’t really make things any clearer. Check out the trailer below and see what you think; Zombieland hits theatres on October 9th.
