Zombieland: Double Tap is set to come out in theaters by the end of the week, and Screen Junkies has released a new Honest Trailer take on the original Zombieland from 2009.
It’s been two months since the zombie apocalypse ravaged civilization and everything’s… going pretty good actually. The roads are clear, the power’s still on, somebody put on the code for infinite ammo, and there aren’t even that many zombies now that I’m thinking about it. Dude, this is like the easiest apocalypse since Wall-E. No wonder most of the drama is Twinkie-related.
If you ask me, this Honest Trailer is kind of pessimistic. I actually really loved the original film, and I thought it was a fresh take on a tired genre. Then again, it was the first zombie comedy I actually saw at the time. Maybe my opinion would have changed if I saw Shaun of the Dead first.
Though I thought the film didn’t really need a sequel, I’m excited to see the release of Double Tap either way. The film was originally thought up as a series, so they should have a lot more stories they want to tell. Let’s just hope this one doesn’t ruin the perfect ending we got from the first film.
A decade after Zombieland became a hit film and a cult classic, the lead cast (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Abigail Breslin, and Emma Stone) have reunited with director Ruben Fleischer (Venom) and the original writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool) for Zombieland: Double Tap. In the sequel, written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and Dave Callaham, through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, these four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.
