….it’s only opposition being the full-length District 9 one. And, Shutter Island, of course.
Some things explain themselves so damn well that there’s no need to write a bunch of blah-blah. Waste space with analysis, thought-vomiting. When something is as insanely-fun-looking as this new red band Zombieland trailer is, all you can do is watch the thing and bow down. Anticipated with baited mouth-fumes, re-watch it again and again. Dream about how cute Emma Stone is, and how brilliantly-cast Woody Harrelson is here. Revel in the series of creative zombie kills, and the all-out reckless verve.
Shaun of the Dead nailed the zombie-comedy tone, so well that I’d thought it impossible to ever come within miles again. Dance of the Dead tried, admirably, but fell Esther-short. Zombieland, though, has the potential to one-up Edgar Wright and his boys; seems like it’ll top its comp in the gore arena, and the humor feels good. The zombie-movie-addict that I am, October 9 can’t get here fast enough.
I know virtually nothing about you, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer…..but I like you already. Badass red band trailer, after the jump:
