Interesting film alert *insert flashing lights here*! While having another YouTube binge I came across the trailer to Zombieland which looks quite appealing.
Granted, it looks like an Americanised version of Shaun of the Dead and is the latest flick to enter the new Zombie comedy sub-genre (we have Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to thank for that). It centres around two men (Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg) who have found a way to survive in a world over run by zombies. Reprising his role from Lost In Translation, Bill Murray stars as a zombie and Abigail Breslin and the severely talented Amber Heard make-up the group of survivors. Watching the trailer I had two thoughts;
Thought #1: “Wow, what an awesome use of slow motion.”
Thought#2: “Can Jesse Eisenberg star in any movie that doesn’t have `land’ in the title? Adventureland, Zombieland and . . I’m-a-better-version-of-Michael-Cera-land.”
This movie looks slick and fun in the hands of relatively unknown director Ruben Fleischer, plus I’m really beginning to like that Eisenberg character. Zombieland will be released in Oz on December 10 and like the monsters it features, I doubt you’ll need a brain to fully enjoy it.
