I have to admit, when I first heard about Ruben Fleischer’s horror/comedy “Zombieland”, I was really expecting another shitty horror/comedy zombie movie. Can you blame me? The guy’s only other directorial credit is “The Girls Guitar Club” and something called “Gumball 3000: 6 Days in May”, for God’s sake. Plus, I’ve just learned to temper my expectations when it comes to this quickly becoming overused sub-genre, since each new entry post-“Shaun of the Dead” seems to get lesser in quality. Of course, that was before I saw the first images from Fleischer’s movie, and I gotta say, seeing Woody Harrelson all cowboy up and packing shotgun heat gets me all kinds of girly excited. Check out the first images from the movie below.
In the horror comedy Zombieland focuses on two men who have found a way to survive a world overrun by zombies. Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) is a big wuss — but when you’re afraid of being eaten by zombies, fear can keep you alive. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is an AK-totin’, zombie-slayin’ badass whose single determination is to get the last Twinkie on earth. As they join forces with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), 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.
Starring Mila Kunis, Abigail Breslin, Bill Murray, Emma Stone, Amber Heard, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Chick Bernhardt, and Rosie Bernhard. Directed by Ruben Fleischer.
